The Dreaming was a term for a specific realm it was believed was sometimes reached during sleep, in a manner similar to astral projection. Some viewed it as a projection of the collective subconscious, a place shared by all dreamers, others as a world in its own right similar to Faerie. Originally this concept may have been based on a western understanding of the aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, Neil Gaiman's concept of The Dreaming as seen in the Sandman graphic novels, and the concept of the Dream Umbra or Dreaming as seen in White Wolf Publishing's Classic World of Darkness setting. Perhaps in large part due to its fictional associations, the term has fallen out of favor and is rarely used at this time.
