The Dream Book of Self-Knowledge

Illusion, illusiveness

  • the world seems real to people, just like the dream world seems real to them in a dream, which is why the ability to recognize illusiveness in a dream gives the dreamer the chance to influence it with his thinking; the path to such an ability, even if it's only temporary, is not complex – you just have to surrender yourself and live for others, which is a conventional experience of beloved people (see the Active Imagination archetype).
  • see the Self archetype on the illusion and illusiveness of antitheses.
