Why is it so difficult to remember the majority of dreams we experience? When our brains are asleep, nothing we experience is encoded into memory. (This is one reason sleep-teaching devices don’t work.) To remember fragments of a dream, one must awaken, at least somewhat, while it is occurring, and even then, the memory is likely to be fleeting. People who recall more of their dreams may be slightly more wakeful in general, especially if they’re making an effort to remember or keep a record of them. Recurring dreams are more likely to be remembered because of the increased number of opportunities to awaken during them, and frightening dreams are sometimes recalled only because they wake you up.
A shoe store had a sale: Buy one pair, get one pair (of equal or lesser value) for a dollar. I bought a pair of $60 boots for a friend and a pair of $30 boots for myself. How much does my friend owe me? If there were no sale, you would have spent $90, and your friend would have owed you (or of that amount, which is $60. Because of the sale, you spent only $61, but the relative value of the boots remained the same, so your friend owes you of $61, which is $40.67. She also owes you of the tax.
