Two gates the silent house of Sleep adorn;
Of polish'd ivory this, that of transparent horn:

lines 893-898 of Book 6 ,
amusingly, wiki defines it as "The gates of horn and ivory are a literary image
used to distinguish true dreams (corresponding
to factual occurrences) from false. The phrase originated in the Greek language, in which the word for "horn" is similar to that for "fulfil" and
the word for "ivory" is similar to that for "deceive". On the basis of that play on words, true dreams are spoken of as coming through the gates
of horn, false dreams as coming through those of ivory."

the OP's having a false vision doesn't invalidate Vision.

chariots in the streets, the man-made metal leviathans of sea and sky, the windswept towers striving for the Heavens were all naught but an idle dream
once, in somebody's mind.
and dreams are not just dreams
