The spiritual implications of a debate within a dream are to do with ascertaining the merits of a positive versus a negative argument, where both are given an equal hearing. When we find that we are in a debate, it symbolizes some inner turmoil or conflict that is as yet unresolved. It also means that you will find closure to those unresolved issues. Listening to a debate suggests that there are things going on that need careful consideration. Taking part in a debate signifies a more 'hands-on' approach is required in some areas of our life. Since debate often contains both logic (a masculine trait) and emotion (a feminine one), men and women will weigh up the merits of the opposite perspective in a debate in dreams.
