non-REM sleep would be of far greater importance than is REM

Visual experiences you have when dreaming are detectable by the same type of brain activity that occurs when looking at actual images when you’re awake
compared evidence of brain activity when participants were awake and looking at real images to the brain activity they saw when participants were dreaming

it may be possible to use brain activity patterns to understand something about what a person is dreaming about

It may become possible to build a decoder that works for different people with a small amount of data for calibrationREM (“rapid eye movement”) dreams may contain richer contents

Non-REM sleep constitutes 75 percent of our sleep; REM is only 25 percent. Nature knows what it needs, so the fact that non-REM occupies such a large percentage and occurs first suggest that it is of far greater importance than is REM
