long-term significance of dreams. The spatial whole of Cosmic
Dreaming may be the greatest teaching machine known to man for
it is capable of illuminating scientific observation in dreams,
while it scans the cosmos for precognitive clues pointing to the
future and retro-cognitive clues leading to events that happened
long ago. It transports us from our inner to outer realities
where we are observing two landscapes at once: a familiar
personal world on earth and an unseen cosmic world.
Jung, psychiatrist, and founder of analytical psychology, was
known for the importance he placed on achieving harmony between
the conscious and unconscious linking to his theory of the
collective unconscious. Jung held that universal symbols and
processes are shared by all of us referring to it as our
“psychic inheritance,” the reservoir of our experiences as a
species, a kind of knowledge we are all born with.
circular imagery in dreams represented a completion, the
ultimate wholeness, and the natural centering force within the
psyche. He spoke of the circle in terms of the totality of the
human psyche and the relationship with the whole of nature. The
circularity found in Cosmic Dreaming illustrates how dream
fragments connect to make one circle at a time, each widening to
reflect the endless loop of time and consciousness. David Bohm,
theoretical physicist set forth an implicate order as an order
of wholeness that included all that exists in a state of
interconnectedness. Montague Ullman, psychiatrist and pioneer in
telepathy studies, theorized a relationship of dreaming to
quantum theory drawing on Bohm’s Implicate Order. Ullman
extended dreaming to a wider range of content than that of the
collective unconscious. This, he called the universal
unconscious linking us not only to ourselves but to all forms of
As our planet’s
survival is increasingly threatened, the physiology of the brain
may be more susceptible to global dangers that surround us.
Cosmic dreaming may be at an evolutionary turning point in the
development of psychic capacities that respond to those threats.
Its wide-angled dream lens traverses landscapes that expand our
worldview and enables us to observe ourselves as both the “one”
and the “all.” This awareness can engender the development of
human potential and the knowledge that survival begins with self
and transcends to the species.
