The inventor in us is the part that takes spiritual responsibility for our progress. He often signifies our ability to ?create? new ways of being, but needs assistance from us on a conscious level. When we dream of an inventor, psychologically we are linking with that side of ourselves that is wiser but at the same time perhaps more introverted than our waking selves. We can give ourselves permission to be creative. Dreaming of an inventor or a professor type links us with the more creative sides of ourselves. Usually this is more the thinker rather than the doer; someone who is capable of taking an idea and making it tangible. You might also like to consult the entry for Laboratory.
