Dreaming in black and white

26 01 2009

The British Psychology Society says that older people might dream or think that they dream in black and white even because they were used to black and white tv and movies among other factors.

The second explanation has to do with black and white television and film. It’s possible that the boom in black and white film and television during the first half of the last century either affected the form of people’s dreams at that time, or affected their beliefs about the form dreams generally take.

Funnily enough when I try to imagine anything prior to the 1960s I automatically see it in black and white. For instance, my mind finds it difficult to accept that daily life in the 1950s or 1940s was in colour.
A bit like this really.
