The subconscious rarely heeds any sort of boundaries, let alone cultural. Some of the commonly expressed reasons for why we dream are: to sort our hard drive so that our conscious memory is not so fragmented... to help sort through things that have been happening in our lives... to present ideas to us, often in the form of archetypes (archetypes in dreams will often look like a familiar person or ob<x>ject but actually represent something else - Google archetypes). Any or all of these could be at play. Often we'll see something and wonder where that came from, but if we think back, we may have seen or heard of that something in an unimportant context. I remember a dream that featured a ball once and later remembered catching a half-second glimpse of a ball the day before.

How fascinating!<br />
What culture are you from?<br />
I have had a dream of a dead person, about 18 years ago now.<br />
Certainly no other death or bad luck followed after that dream.<br />
Also, only a few people can control their dreams...<br />
it feels strange to me, <br />
the idea of making something taboo if you have no choice about it.
