'The Future Starts Here' Season Two, Episode One: 'A Case For Dreaming', Watch It Now!

Why do we dream? Well, it's not just to pass the time while you're sleeping.

In fact, the latest research suggests that the most important part of your day might be the hours you spend doing... nothing.

In this new series of her groundbreaking web show 'The Future Starts Here', filmmaker and founder of the Webby Awards Tiffany Shlain takes us on an incredible journey through the science and research of dreams, from 'The Default Mode Network' which controls our unconscious hours, to the effects smartphones are having on our ability to turn off.

From the latest neuroscience on dreaming to the evolution of social media to new perspectives on creativity, Shlain uses her award-winning style of fast-paced images, colorful animations, and daring and funny insights to encourage us all to think about where we’re headed.

Check out episode one, above. We'll feature one of this season's eight episodes every week until December.
