We know that babies to enter REM sleep (dream state sleep) because we can see their eyes twitch as they sleep.

In fact they spend over half their time in REM sleep! Way more than adults.

But what do they dream about?

Neuroscientists believe REM sleep serves a completely different role in babes: It allows their brains to build pathways, and helps them develop languages.

But they lack the head space and the ability to imagine themselves as the heroes of baby adventures, or to dream of toys.

According to neuroscientists, even children at the age of 4 or 5 typically describe dreams that are static and plain, with no characters that move or act, few emotions and no memories. 

Vivid dreams start at age 7 and 8, when the child can become self-aware, and know that she/he is a person. 

In fact, the amount of self awareness— understanding that they would be the same person even if they had a different name, for example — strongly correlates with the amount of plot structure in that child’s dreams.

I think children have vivid dreams a lot earlier because I still remember a dream I had when I was 4 where I was strapped down to a mad scientist’s table and was about to be experimented on. 

Reading through the comments, a lot of people report back having vivid dreams at 4 or 5. Perhaps this theory is wrong after all.

An Octopus unscrewing a lid from the inside.

Octopuses are going to kill us all someday

I had a biology teacher that told us this story about an octopus at an aquarium in Australia. The staff were concerned because their population of crustaceans kept disappearing. No bodies or anything. So they checked the video feed to find out what’s up.

Across from the the crustacean tank was a small octopus tank. This little fucker squeezed out of a tiny hole at the top of his tank, walk across the hall, and get into the crustacean tank. He would then hunt and eat. After he was done, he crawled back out and get back in his tank

Here’s the kicker: security guards patrolled the area. The staff realized that the octopus had memorized the security’s routine. It would escape and be back between the guards’ round.
