Eight is always connected with Four—since it is the “double” of Four, and also seems to be a lucky number. Eight is the symbol of Saturn and is always connected with “Karma.” Fight-people are often misunderstood, but tend to be loners widi a tendency to fanaticism. They are often unfairly seen as emotionally cold and unapproachable, because the Eight does not like to show emotions. Eight-people are achievers, industrious, and dynamic, keeping an eye on success in every situation.
The sheer amount of energy they invest in their goals can turn into ruthlessness and combativeness.
In general, behind the number Eight might be elements of death and rebirth, the moving downward of the lower part so that the upper part can move upward. But the Eight may also be a symbol of the highest point of development from which something new can be created—because after reaching the summit, the old can’t develop any furdier.
The number Eight often stands for decay and procreation. See Saturn.

After spiritual matters have been made manifest, great abundance is possible. Eight is the number of infinity and all that it implies. This includes wealth of every kind: love, money, bliss, joy, and every amazing experience life has to offer.
The concept of infinity states that there is no limitation in the universe, that time and space continue forever and ever in a way that is beyond our ability to truly comprehend. When an understanding of infinity and abundance are combined, there is a realization that there is an endless supply of anything you could possibly desire, even those things that you perceive as limited and unavailable to you. Eight is the magic of seven in action.
The shadow side of this is greed, hoarding, and withholding love.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams

(1) Height may symbolize level of achievement.
(2) The greater the height, the more panoramic the view. Are you getting your personal problem(s) in perspective; taking a more detached, less emotional view of things?
(3) The symbolism may be that of‘ascension’ or ‘resurrection’ - that is, transcending your present or former self towards a new and richer state of being.
(4) Are you afraid - in your dream - of falling? This probably represents either fear of failure; or a warning that ‘pride comes before a fall’, and that you should not strive for what is beyond your reach, because it is not appropriate to your real nature. Concentrate instead on self-discovery, so that your endeavours will be in tune with the fundamental structure of your individual psyche.... A Dictionary of Dream Symbols

You need to get a higher vantage point in order to achieve some objectivity in some area of your life. This higher perspective also offers you a higher level of consciousness.
The higher your vantage point, the more expansive your view of your environment will be. This takes on the symbolic meaning of expanded consciousness.
The higher your level of thought, the more enlightened you are considered to be. This is so because there is a correlation between expanded consciousness and making positive, life- affirming choices. In simpler terms, the more you see, the more you know.
The more you know, the more informed you can be about your choices. This expansion, however, comes with a caveat. Choosing to live at higher levels of consciousness brings with it a great deal of responsibility.
The higher you go, the farther you can fall should you lose your footing.
The greatest issue here is whether your fear of falling from a great height is real or imagined. Even the most precarious precipice is safe as long as you practice stillness. However, stillness is perhaps the greatest challenge in the human experience.
The key to understanding this symbol is relativity.
The roof of a small building will afford you a view of everything that is near it. Conversely, being up in space can afford a view of the entire world.
The greater the height, the higher the level of consciousness being expressed. Your emotional experience of that height in your dream must color the interpretation you assign it.... Complete Dictionary of Dreams
