Before the talk starts, we got the chances to ask the audience’s expectation about the talk that about to be presented by Khairuddin. Some of the expectations were “the talk would obviously about how dream works“, “the talk would tell us how beneficial dream to us, Human being”. The attendance was way different from the previous talk, where it is not really packed with students. The talk start with the presenter introducing himself and he start explaining about his topic “dreams”.
He explain that there are five stages of sleep. The five stages are

He explained that, the 4 stages which is from Stage 1 until Stage 4 is not really important, and he continued that the rapid eye movement sleep stage is really important. He explained that, when us, human sleep, our muscles are paralyzed and from this we’ll experienced Vivid Dreams. when the Rapid Eye Movement is turned on or basically activated, our mind is conscious but our body is in a form of unconscious.
