Dreams are meant by the brain to have the organism (mind) adjust pathways for decisions. A mind (Claustrum) gets signals from the brain's pathways where reactions (conflicts)are created by 'obstruction'. The responses are graphical representations caused by the brain to have the mind to give emotional feedback on what the brain should decide next time the organism gets into this situation (emotionally, etc).
