Our mind is not inventing faces - in our dreams we see real faces of real people that we have seen during our life but may not know or just not remember.

Black-and - white dreams, we see 12%. The remaining number dream in color. Studies from 1915 until 1950-ies claim that the majority of dreams were in black and white, but these results began to change in the 1960-ies.
