The dream ignores the laws that coact the restless thought. In the dream space, dead, forgotten or unknown faces appear; places and objects compress or transform. We are transferred automatically from one place to another, and from one point of time to another. Restrictions of time and space that apply to the alertness are neglected. Feelings do not respond to scenes, relations become incoherent, faces and situations are driven into contradictions and the paradox seems to substitute all reason.
Through this study the writer tries to approach the dream space trough philosophy, psychoanalysis and psychology, as well as through her personal observation and the analysis that aims to the discovery of all those characteristics that define the dream space and differentiate it from the ‘real’ one.
