A recent study by the National Psychiatric Institute in Boston, MA, concluded that no activity can account for the phenomenon known as nightmares. Whereas many dreams come from unconscious desires, most nightmares seem to come from an outside source independent of the individual. In fact, when subjects are asked to recall nightmares they are almost always found in the same memory section as actual physical memories, not the section where normal dreams are replayed. In other words, those aliens and creatures you see at night in your “dreams?” They’re real.

    Heh. This one kept me awake at night. But if this were true, then I never found that arsenal of zombie-busting weapons I had in my last nightmare. Maybe I need to reach further under my pillow…

    Hey man. First time poster.

    This site is probably my favorite on the entire net and I just found it today. I love creepypasta and I love the creativity that goes into the really good stuff. It makes you think and it gives you something to be grateful for when things are there worst. At least you don’t have to deal with demented japanese ghosts and men in black.

    Screw everyone who hates it. They don’t have to read it. I appreciate all your hard work man.

    Peace.

      i agree with you…..i actually found this site when i was on a social game called IMVU and my first Creepypasta was Jeff the killer. i fell in love with that story ^^. And this was probably more than a year ago. Any-who i rate all the stories 10/10 even though it wasn’t scary cuz i know the effort they put into it. So thumbs up to all the people that was brave enough to submit their stories XD

    As far as I know, there is no separate memory section for dreams. Everything is stored in the same place. And it’s been shown before that imagined experiences and actual experiences evoke the same kinds of activation patterns in general.

    I probably just made God kill a catgirl.

    while this is a good little story, dreams are just caused by random neurons firing in your brain and your brain scrambling to make up a story to go along with it

    It’s not a bad concept, but the jump from A to B is too wide. Memory storage “location” doesn’t imply any kind of reality. The basic conclusion the story tries to reach is a pretty good one, but the means by which it gets there are just weak.

    THEN WHO WAS NIGHTMARE?

    I’ve been trying all day to be the first commenter on a creepypasta to do that. Yes, I have no life, thanks for asking.

    Lame, there are amny signs that show it is not true. Like the fact that if this was true, the news reporters would be all over it. And the goverment would supply pills so that the nightmares you have don’t come anymore, basiclly blocking out a part of your brain. Lastly, the goverment would have taken this story off of the sight, so that you don’t get scared and have the nightmares where the supposed demons come out to play.

    I would, however, like to congradgulate the writer for making his or her stor sound very news like and official. That’s all I can say.

    i actually thought that was pretty creepy, could have done without the last line saying that the nightmares were real though, that would have been even scarier to come to the conclusion yourself, but yummy pasta definitely =)

    This pasta is a bit too big of a jump for me. From “memory type is different” to “TEH DEMONS ARE RAEL”.

    Good thing they’re real, too. The stuff that comes from the outside makes for the best source of inspiration, pondering and conversation, and the worse price I’ve ever had to pay for it was a slightly crappy day of feeling a bit drained…
