definition of Dream-Self
Dream-Self: The dream-self is the character or presence within the dream experienced as “I” or “me,” which may or may not resemble the dreamer, and which may change in the course of a given dream. Sometimes, the dream-self is not embodied in the dream, but is experienced as a witnessing point-of-view. Sometimes, the dream-self is experienced in several different dream characters simultaneously or serially. Sometimes, there is no sense of “I” in the dream at all, in which case perhaps the entire dream may be considered to be the dream-self.
