Psychology 1000
Erica Lawson

Dreams have been recognized as the motivation and inspiration for major achievements in many fields of study, including sciences, film, literature, and music. The video mentions how Einstein credits his inspiration for discovering the speed of light to a dream he once had. Bruce Damer (the NASA designer) and Neils Bohr are among the few mentioned for having credited their success to what they experienced in dreams. Dreams have also affected many individuals beyond the scientific field. In the film industry, James Cameron, the director of Avatar, has mentioned lucid dreams as being the inspiration for one of his famous movie scenes. As well, Chris Nolan, the director of Memento and The Dark Knight, credits his inspiration to produce Inception was from his own lucid dreams. In the field of music, Beethoven, Wagner, and Mozart pointed to dreams as the source of their inspiration for their masterpieces. As well, former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney says that he dreamed the tune for his well-known song Yesterday.
