The dream is the beginning of a vision for the future. The eye serves as a symbol of the vision. The closed eye dreams while the opened eye is able to watch visions. Also it stands for interest, attention, watchfulness and solicitousness. At the same time the eye is an important organ for taking up and understanding of external suggestions. Here thereby it also functions as a symbol for a transforming connection between outside world and generated phantasies. Finally, the eye reflects the personal mind situation outwardly and takes over with it a large part of the human expression. Another aspect for the choice of this symbol is the high recognition value of the biological form.
