Common misconceptions about dream content

A. We occasionally hear sayings about "you can't do/see XXX in dreams". Where XXX is seeing colors, seeing lights, seeing your face in a mirror, or a large number of variants on this theme. Experience clearly proves this wrong. (It may well be that people who actually believe in these misconceptions do have the mentioned "handicaps" in their dreams. What they believe about dreams comes true.)

[Or, to put it more bluntly, any conceivable experience, including many impossible things, can occur in a dream. --RD]
