The brain is considered to be the seat of the soul. Spiritually it represents the coming together of power and intellect. It is unlikely that anyone will dream of a brain per se, however, since the brain is also the seat of learning, we may need to consider our beliefs and ideals in the light of experience. When attention is drawn to the brain in a dream, we are expected to consider our own or others intellect. To dream of the brain being preserved indicates the need to take care in intellectual pursuits. We may be pushing ourselves too hard.
