IMO, dreams are us just thinking while meaning, no purpose...just like when we think of something and it happens or someone say just what you were thinking, its the same thing when people say dreams come true. Like when you leave the tv on and you think your dreaming something but your really just hearing the tv...Hell, 1 night i was sleep and i'm dreaming i'm singing on stage for a bunch of people...but then i wake up and the movie "Sweeney Todd" was on and it was actually johnny depp singing
