Why are dreams complicated?

Why are dreams complicated? One of the reasons could be that your brain and subconsciousness uses bits of memories to make up a story to tell you a message. During sleep, the brain can not speak to you directly like as in forming mental thoughts. It uses dream imagery to string together a message. These images have special meanings that only you know by experience. Thus, you’re the best person to decipher and decode what your dream means to you.
