Definition of Dreamtime

Definition of Dreamtime.
The Aboriginal people of Australia believe in two forms of time, or put another way: two parallel streams of activity. So basically the definition of dreamtime falls into two forms. The first one is the daily objective activity, the second one is an infinite spiritual cycle called the 'dreamtime', which is considered more real than reality itself. 


Whatever happens in the dreamtime actually establishes the values, symbols, and laws of the Australian Aboriginal society. It was believed that some people considered to have unusual spiritual powers had contact with the dreamtime.
