A person with a criminal mind in waking reality, will also dream of imagery that pertains to criminal activities. The person’s moral sense in waking hours will be the same during sleeping and in dreams. A male or female who behaves immorally in waking hours, will also dream of immoral imagery during sleep.
A thief in reality will also be dreaming about stealing money and valuables in his sleep.
It is very difficult to swap a criminal brain with another one which has no neural circuitry of criminal thoughts and behaviors. A number of therapies, like cognitive behavior therapy and others, can be tried to overcome the old behavior patterns.
