Since time immemorial, man has been mystified by his dreams. But he has felt that somehow dreams expressed some higher power within his own mind trying to warn him of coming events or revealing a pattern of destiny known only to this power.
Shakespeare wrote of this mystical dimension of time and space, beyond the ordinary everyday experiences of conscious mental activity:
We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life Is rounded with a sleep.
Modem psychologists think that there is more to dreaming than was formerly believed by Freud and his followers, who felt that dreams represented suppressed desires mostly associated with the sexual instinct.
Some psychologists have come to the conclusion that dreams represent another dimension in which extrasensory powers are released by a higher, superconscious mind, that this mind is try ing to weave a tapestry of dreams to reveal a pattern of destiny.
