Spiritually, the Invisible is God Unmanifest, that is, prior to Creation. Also known as the Absolute, it is invisible because it is not experienced or comprehended by any of the five conscious senses. When we are conscious that something is invisible in a dream, it indicates that we simply need to be aware of the image's presence, without necessarily having to interpret it immediately. Actually becoming invisible in a dream disappearing would indicate either that we are not ready to face the knowledge that understanding would bring us, or that there is something we would rather forget. Sometimes a figure (either a man or woman), though seeming to be invisible, can represent the Shadow. In both men's and women's dreams it will have the same gender as the dreamer.
