16.6.4 The Barrier, the Rashirmir, or the Dream Realm
Much about the dream realm yet lies in mystery. It is the space existing between all realms, a buffer or barrier between the realms, protecting them from each other, although it is uncertain how this barrier works. Most regard dreams as a meaningless wandering of the mind, but others speculate further. Most dreams indeed are fabricated by the mind, where the consequences and actions mean nothing, but these scholars postulate that some are able to touch this space between realms. In the Rashirmir, actions can affect the other realms and can have serious, deadly consequences.
