Dallas :   Jerry I on the contrary would hardly use "unqualified"
dream experiences
( as remembered )  as evidence for the "spiritual nature.  Some
are indeed "spiritual" -- those that cannot be forgotten.  Most
remembered dreams are largely in content "emotional."  and are
usually forgotten quite quickly by the average person.

A friend describing the process of sleep and dreams once
suggested that we are like an astronaut in a space vehicle to get
off the Earth into Space we have to pass through the atmosphere
(compares this to emotional dreams) then in Space (compares this
to SPIRITUAL DREAMS or VISIONS) and, the return journey is again
a passage through the atmosphere, where the distortion of the
psychic type of dreams may efface or distort the impressions left
of the SPIRITUAL ( Deep Space)
type of "DREAMS -- OR VISIONS"

On p. 79 to HPB's TRANSACTIONS is a catalog of 7 types of dreams.
Preceding that starting p. 58 is a whole section on "Dreams."
