If you have a dream set in an urban landscape, this is your dreaming mind’s way of exploring your social feelings and beliefs. It can also be an expression of your work and career aspirations. Alternatively, such dreams can also represent you as a person; as Jung pointed out, cities can be a symbol of the self. In particular, he noticed that in dreams the structure of a city is often symmetrical in the shape of a mandala. Jung interpreted mandalas as an expression of the fullness of the self and wholeness. According to Jung, every town and city that is mapped to a mandala format is an expression of the human desire for wholeness; in dreams, the pattern can remind dreamers that the path to happiness is not to be found in the city but within yourself.

If such dreams are common, it would be a good idea to see a psychologist.
Multiplicity is the essential characteristic of all life events that register in the unconscious—the deeper in the unconscious, the more pronounced the multiplicity.
It is connected to the sympathetic nervous system, where whatever is happening is telegraphed to every cell in the body. Multiplicity has a destructive connotation, because it dissolves the unity of consciousness, occurring often where there is a conflict between the ego, the many different Ts, and influences in the environment. This dream may also point to conflicts and prejudices that are a hindrance.
According to the theorist Gurdjieff, the person who is not free always depends on many egos, and they make themselves known through such dreams. Other people suggest that the many egos of a person are what bring out his or her creative potential.
This dream often occurs during illnesses that are part physical and part psychological—delirium tremens, for example, where hallucinations involving many Mice are not uncommon.
However, multiplicity might also point to an early stage of a new awareness.
