The subject of dream, related with a lot of field like psychology, religion, phylosophy and history, they were handled by scientists which are majored in different disciplines and different describings were made. Dreams were subject which people interested in from the first centuries people interpreted them and they gave different meanings to dreams. In many cultures accepted that the events, which are lived in dreams, as obvious and real as the lifes being awaken. The dreams that are explained with traditional symbols are the public culture’s extentions.
