Dream about death

We think this misguided notion may reflect the fact that many people awaken as they dream of crashing a car, falling off a cliff, or otherwise endangering themselves. When you consider that nightmares are scary dreams that almost always awaken the dreamer, it seems clear that our own tendency to rouse ourselves might suggest that we are doing so to save our own lives. But never fear! There are plenty of people who have dreamed of dying only to awaken the next morning and recount the imagined ordeal over coffee and doughnuts. For example, a man reports that he has had several dreams in which he dies, and then regards himself as an observer would. ''Actually," he comments, "it gets kind of boring. I am dead, and I can't get up and do anything. I just lie there. But the dream goes on."
