“The dream is a little hidden door in the inmost and most secret recesses of the psyche, opening into that cosmic night which was the psyche long before there was any ego consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego consciousness may extend ... All consciousness separates; but in dreams we put on the likeness of that more universal, truer, and more eternal man dwelling in the darkness of primordial night. There is still the whole and the whole is in him ... From these all-uniting depths the dream arises.” (CW. 10,194)

The main experience of symbols is as dream images. Thus, the dream plays a creative role in the process of integration. Far from being an illusory wish-fulfilment or a pathological product, they have a compensatory function by revealing trends or states of which the conscious mind is quite unaware. Dreams are the entirely normal “spontaneous self-portrayal, in symbolic form, of the actual situation in the unconscious.”
