The only difference between daydreaming and nightdreaming is the fact that we are asleep in one.
Dreams occur when the person is so relaxed that they pay no attention to what goes on around them. In our dreams, we can find ourselves doing some pleasant thing, or enjoying a great triumph, or accomplishing something that we want very much.
Night dreams are usually more unusual and unrealistic than daydreams because in sleep people have almost no control over what they think. Night dreams can also express things that frighten us.
This is because it is an emotion from inside the person of needs, wants, fears, desires, and so on. The dream provides the opportunity for these to express themselves.
