What is Jung’s view of dream theory

Jung was a follower of Freud, and his emotions about dreams were almost crazy. He believes that dreams are a kind of creation, because it is impossible to determine whether the cause of the dream is a physiological need or an external push. Jung's interpretation of "dreams collect a mysterious message from our dark side" is very different from Freud's.

Jung believed that dreams are independent and each dream has its own meaning. Therefore, systematic interpretation cannot be done but only case analysis can be carried out. In addition, Jung put the dreamer's life experience and even racial factors into the scope that must be considered in dream interpretation, and determined that the individual's unconscious comes from the collective consciousness of his ethnic group, which further promoted the dream theory.

Jung believed that dreams can be inherited. The events experienced by a family’s ancestors will leave memories in the mind and even cells, and this memory will be passed on to future generations, so that future generations can have the characteristics of their predecessors. Knowledge and insight, which only appear in dreams. This special inheritance is what Jung calls primitive traces. The original trace is abstract, a vague feeling, and a tendency. This tendency can only appear in dreams, and it is very vivid. When the thoughts of the predecessors are conveyed through visual things, future generations may not be able to understand them.

Jung believed that dreams can reveal the primitive man in our hearts, which is inherited from generations of ancestors. If we can carefully analyze and understand dreams, it will be like knowing many "primitive people". Then the wisdom and experience of our ancestors can be of great help to us. Of course, not all dreams are of equal value. Some dreams only involve trivial matters and are not very important, while those dreams that contain the meaning of primitive people are full of mystery and shock.
