which can appear as if you are "GOD" basically.
And I really do mean it too, you can basically do what you want in these type of dreams.
Basically your own personal little sandboxed world for some, while others it might
appear as a scenario. In this sandboxed world, you can create "life", you can
create lets say NPCs(nonplayable character/pc gamer reference) or they can
have personality of what you would expect from them. You can create
"light". You can even create the moon, stars, whatever you desire. Like most people
enjoy Flying in these type of dreams, can run really fast, can jump over buildings.
Can create a wave of flesh eating zombies at your disposable and blow torch them
to hell. To do all these things, you "MUST" have visual skills/good imagination
for these things to happen, they will happen, just need to be confident of yourself!
List can go on and on.

I think there's basically two kinds of dreams. There are dreams that take place in the personal unconscious mind of the dreamer. These are trivial.
Then there's psychic dreams that take place in the collective unconscious. These dreams are part of the individuation process. These are not trivial. In these dreams we interact with activated archetypes of the collective unconscious in symbolic, poetic, mythological form.
So the question then becomes why do we undergo the individuation process.

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.
