If you want to dream, you must… sleep. Sleep in humans and many animals takes place in different stages. Dreams come in between these stages. It is fleeting or has a lingering aftertaste.

The stages of sleep repeat, repeating in cycles throughout the night to morning. As the cycle repeats, stages 1, 2, and 3 happen faster, time of sleep is “preferred” to stage 4.
