Dreams have been the subject of human analysis since antiquity. The ancient Greeks and Romans explored dreams through theatrical dramas; previously, ancient Egyptians theorized another life within The Book of the Dead.
In 1899, the founder of psychoanalysis, Sigmund Freud (1956-1939) wrote in The Interpretation of Dreams: "The dream is the liberation of the spirit from the pressure of external nature, a detachment of the soul from the fetters of matter."
Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung (1875-1961) understood dreams as messages from the unconscious, writing in The Red Book: "Dreams are the guiding words of the soul. Why should I henceforth not love my dreams and not make their riddling images into objects of my daily consideration?"
From ancient philosophers to pioneering psychiatrists of the 19th century, the realm of sleep is a limitless source of imagination and creation, if only we tap into it.
