http://dreameo.org/blog/dream-interpretation-by-jung-all-stages-of-a-dream/
The structure of a usual dream is similar to that of a drama, comprised of four different
stages:
1. “Exposition” –
the first scene,
introduction of the place and time,
characters and situations the dreamer will have to face
the initial situation that points to the central conflict expressed in a dream (the issue or
problem is expressed metaphorically, using the language of images).
2. “Development” –
the actual plot.
the plot contains something new (an important change), something that leads a dream to
3. “Culmination” –
There is occurring something significant, the protagonist responds.
there are represented the most important things the finale of a dream narrates of
4. “Lysis” –
the dream conclusion
the anagnorisis— the startling discovery that produces a change from ignorance to
knowledge. It is discussed by Aristotle in the Poetics as an essential part of the plot of a
tragedy, although anagnorisis occurs in comedy, epic, and, at a later date, the novel as
well
Or the peripeteia: a sudden or unexpected reversal of circumstances or situation,
especially in a literary work
A dream ending is considered to be the most important stage. It shows if the dreamer is
able to cope with the problem or issue that was expressed in the exposition. In fact, the
task of a dream is to find the solution for the dreamer.
