In dreams you meet many people and see many things, but they are all part you. Dreams are in fact stories of your real life that are metaphorically told from the viewpoint of your inner-self. In my dreams, for instance, New York City was depicted as Pompeii in ruins, a TV as a pilotless bomber, smartphones as sex toys for orphans, and I (female) as a male actor with huge testicles who is playing woman's role in a dress. Without seeing our 'reality' through the eyes of dreams, we will never know what the 'reality' really means.
