For centuries we have been fascinated by dreams and their meaning. In the end of the nineteenth century psychotherapist Carl Jung,
best known for archetypes and the collective unconscious, began to

during sleep. A research team of scientists at the ATR Computational
Neuroscience Laboratory in Kyoto, Japan, has explored brain scans while identifying the visual imagery of dreams. They concluded that we watch our dreams in the same manner that we watch our waking world.
In order to analyze the dreams we must also study how we participate
in our daily activities. Are dreams a replay on the visual stimuli of
what we perceive in waking hours or messages of guidance from beyond?
What do these symbols mean? How do we interpret them and analyze them to
