Here's an other one that I find most bizare...where do all those faces come from. I mean,..all those people I have encountered in my dreams and
the faces that go with them. Maybe someday I will meet one of these persons in real life?
Loads of other cultures like Chinese, Indian, revere ancestors, believe they are around us, watching over us. Some think we meet them in dreams.
"Faces" as you describe them... (IMO)
If dreams are generated with information stored in our subconscious I must have seen them somewhere but never really noticed them. I am
speculating now because I am not an expert....any idea what the current understanding among psychiatrist is these days?
They would tell you that it is simply the complex human mind, sorting out the days activities (which it does) and other stuff like desire or feelings
of guilt about concerns you have in real life. "Nothing to see here".
You of course have to decide between the two. One way is to ask yourself if the faces you see are always the same, are they human, too they teach or
tell or take you places? Do your dreams have a direction or randomness?
My mom dreams all the time of being lost in a labyrinth she can't find the exit too. She is trying to get to somewhere form nowhere and always there
are more moats and walls and hallways. In real life she is a worrisome, anxious, selfish person who is never happy. So I am unable to tell her
anything useful. She doesn't want to hear the obvious.
Maybe if you get a little more specific about a particular dream you are thinking of? It's okay if not.
Gotta go, I'll check back. (By the way, I am no expert either, just have ideas too.)
ETA: I just reread your OP, I'll address part of it when I get back.
