Is your unconscious mind trying to work out your problems or handle trauma in your dreams that your mind can not deal with when you are awake?

Your unconscious handles all the issues that you have to deal with in your life, big or small, whether you think about them or not. When you fall asleep and dream, your unconscious deals with these issues, and instructs you on how to best deal with them.

This is why dreams can sometimes tell people messages and teach them lessons, because their subconscious has processed parts of their day, and made sense of it, to let someone know what to deal with next.

Also emotions which would continually make someone cry, and would be best not to deal with on a regular basis, that still people face, are repressed and stored in the subconscious, to make your life easier to cope with.

People get tired, for the same reason that people need sleep.

The brain likes to have stimulation (activity), as it likes to take in lots of things (stimuli) at once. This is why going for walks is really productive, allowing the brain to be more creative and the person to be happier.

People also have a subconscious. The subconscious is the part of the brain that deals with all the things that you're not thinking of right now, and it processes all the information that you see and learn everyday, so you can remember it and know how to make decisions the next day. Think of the subconscious like a computer or the Google search engine, constantly looking at new things, and storing it in the background, without you being aware of it. That's why it's called the subconscious.

Now what happens, is that the subconscious gets overloaded with information, and needs to process it. It's like crap Windows 95 computers that were out before you was born, that need to turn off and have a rest, after they've been on too long.

When you sleep, your brain gets all the information that you've processed in that day, and decides which is going in the short term memory, which is going in the long term memory, and what you'll forget when you wake up. What you'll forget tomorrow, and what you'It does this every time you sleep. It's deciding whether you love your family or friends. It thinks about whether you're going to be happy the next day. Basically, it evaluates lots of possible circumstances that could happen tomorrow, things you've seen, learnt or heard, and lots of stuff that you're not thinking about.

And that's why people get tired. So that their brain can process everything that's happened that day.

I wrote it myself on Quora. That's why I never referenced it.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
