I was being chased, it was a white labyrinth office building with no ceiling. I could fly upwards but the pursuing hooded figure would always stay right behind me. The staircases were endless and I could pass through them and reorient and run the opposite way down the underside but it would follow me.
No matter what I tried he would follow me but eventually I found a door and walked through it. Only to start free falling in nothingness but then I started flying again and the hooded figure came through but he fell down into oblivion.
An architectonic structure, apparently aimless, and of a pattern
so complex that, once inside, it is impossible or very difficult to escape. Or it may
take the form of a garden similarly patterned. Ancient writings mention five great
mazes: that of Egypt, which Pliny located in lake Moeris; the two Cretan labyrinths of Cnossus (or Gnossus) and Gortyna; the Greek maze on the island of
Lemnos; and the Etruscan at Clusium. It is likely that certain initiatory temples
were labyrinthine in construction for doctrinal reasons. Ground-plans, sketches
and emblems of mazes appear fairly frequently over a very wide area, but principally in Asia and Europe. Some are believed to have been conceived with the
purpose of luring devils into them so that they might never escape. It is to be
supposed, therefore, that, for the Primitive, the maze had a certain fascination
comparable with the abyss, the whirlpool and other phenomena (8). Nevertheless, Waldemar Fenn suggests that some circular or elliptical labyrinths in prehistoric engravings—those at Peña de Mogor, for example—should be interpreted as
diagrams of heaven, that is, as images of the apparent motions of the astral bodies. This notion is not opposed to the previous one: it is independent of it and, up to
a point, complementary, because the terrestrial maze, as a structure or a pattern,
is capable of reproducing the celestial, and because both allude to the same basic
idea—the loss of the spirit in the process of creation—that is, the ‘fall’ in the
neoplatonic sense—and the consequent need to seek out the way through the
‘Centre’, back to the spirit. There is an illustration in De Groene Leeuw, by
Goosse van Wreeswyk (Amsterdam, 1672), which depicts the sanctuary of the
alchemists’ lapis, encircled by the orbits of the planets, as walls, suggesting in this
way a cosmic labyrinth (32). The emblem of the labyrinth was widely used by mediaeval architects. To trace through the labyrinthic path of a mosaic patterned
on the ground was once considered a symbolic substitute for a pilgrimage to the
Holy Land (28). Some labyrinths shaped like a cross, known in Italy as ‘Solomon’s
knot’, and featured in Celtic, Germanic and Romanesque decoration, are a synthesis of the dual symbolism of the cross and the labyrinth; they are known, for this
reason, as the ‘emblem of divine inscrutability’. It is not difficult to make out, in
the centre of the pattern, the figure of the swastika, which adds to the basic
symbolism a suggestion of rotating, generating and unifying motion (4). For Diel,
the maze signifies the unconscious, and also error and remoteness from the fount
of life (15). Eliade notes that the essential mission of the maze was to defend the
‘Centre’—that it was, in fact, an initiation into sanctity, immortality and absolute
reality and, as such, equivalent to other ‘trials’ such as the fight with the dragon.
At the same time, the labyrinth may be interpreted as an apprenticeship for the
neophyte who would learn to distinguish the proper path leading to the Land of
the Dead (17).

A feminine symbol (32) which, notwithstanding, contains all the implications of the symbolic hole, since it is the door which gives access to the hole; its
significance is therefore the antithesis of the wall. There is the same relationship
between the temple-door and the altar as between the circumference and the
centre: even though in each case the two component elements are the farthest
apart, they are nonetheless, in a way, the closest since the one determines and
reflects the other. This is well illustrated in the architectural ornamentation of
cathedrals, where the façade is nearly always treated as if it were an altar-piece.
To dream that you are entering through a door, signifies new opportunities that are presented before you. You are entering into a new stage in your life and moving from one level of consciousness to another.

Dreams about falling are very common anxiety dreams that can represent underlying fears and feelings of inadequacy and helplessness. Interpret your dream by considering your primary fears, current difficulties, and situations in your life that seem to be on a downward spiral, especially those situations that seem outside of your control (financial, romantic, etc.). Some people believe that if you keep falling in your dream and don't wake up that you will die at the point of impact. This is absolutely not true. In a falling dream you wake up out of fear and not because of danger of dying.
You could be falling from anywhere, a high rise building, from a mountain, from a plane, or even from your bed.
This is a very common dream, and is sometimes accompanied by muscle jerks, which may jolt you, awake.
The dream can occur due to:
* The posture of a limb dangling off the bed
* Lowering of your blood pressure
* Movement of fluid in the middle ear
After the fall, you may be hurt, you may be unharmed, or you wake up before you hit the ground.
At an emotional level the dream probably signifies a fear of fall from position/moral/ethical values, sexual inadequacy, fear of losing your job, the way your dream ends tells you how you would handle such a situation.
One interesting theory of a falling dream goes way back when man made his house on trees?
Recurring falling dreams could mean that your emotional strength is not at an optimum level. Trying to relax, by listening to music , visualizing tranquil scenes, can help you avoid falling dreams.
