    Beliefs, Myths, Dreams

    Beliefs, Myths, Dreams


    It highlights the real events that feed our worst nightmares. When philosophers, especially those of the 18th century Enlightenment, discuss beliefs – indeed religious beliefs but not always only, there is the underlying distinction between reasoned belief, where faith is the subject of sometimes highly elaborate intellectual speculation and “popular” belief, given that in their minds the uneducated masses hold beliefs akin to superstitions. Our modern beliefs are more diverse than is often believed and have much to teach us about our history and our society, of which they are an instructive reflection.

    The human sciences highlight the usefulness of studying them and analyzing their roles. In the eighteenth century, Immanuel Kant put a real stop to these attempts, not by wanting to annihilate beliefs but by offering them asylum. By maintaining that anything that exceeded the limits of experience was not knowable, he was in effect shielding them from reason: “So we had to put knowledge aside in order to obtain room for the belief. By limiting knowledge, he promoted belief on metaphysical questions.


    A myth is a story that offers an explanation relating to fundamental aspects of the world: its creation, the phenomena natural, the status of the human being… etc! This is a widespread belief, but unfounded… Myth is in its original meaning, a story. In religious myth, human existence is linked to the world of gods or spirits. Myths lay claim to validity for the truth they claim. This claim to truth has been criticized by the pre-Socratics since the Greek Enlightenment (e.g. Xenophanes , around 500 BC). For the sophists , the myth stands in opposition to the logos , which tries to substantiate the truth of its assertions through rational evidence.

    When you ask “What does my dream mean?” You are echoing a question that has been asked since the beginning of time. In almost all cultures on all continents, stories that occur in sleep have special meanings and meanings. Many cultures have built practices around their beliefs about what dreams mean, where they come from, and what they can say about how people connect to the world and everything around them.

    Dreams and myths have striking parallels. They are different, of course, in that dreams are personal and raw products of the unconscious. Myths, on the other hand, may have dream backgrounds, but are the product of sometimes elaborate artistic narrative shaping by consciousness.

    What is the meaning of your dream?

    Dreaming is a state of the brain, just like sleeping and waking. It would be the consequence of neurological reprogramming to preserve the personality of individuals. The dream is essential to help us manage the emotions experienced during the day. It would therefore be a regulator of our emotional balance.
