There is a difference between dreaming, thinking and seeing things with your eyes closed. When you dream you are asleep and unable to physically control your body (usually). When you are thinking about something you cannot zoom in and study the detail of what you're seeing because you are creating the thought (usually). When you are seeing things with your eyes closed both of the previous states are combined. You are not controlling what you are seeing by thought, and you are able to consciously control your physical body. In effect, you are dreaming whilst awake and aware.
