What was this dream's meaning?

I dreamt about a dream in the art style of Spirited Away, and I was the dragon (unrelated - I had watched the movie that day.) flying around a wooded area, with glowing eyes in all the shadows and a wall of unstopping voices. I was trying to find something important before I went mad, I don't know what though, but in the end, the dream kept looping and I was flying through the same 2 rooms in the same pattern. It was interesting, I suppose despite the effects it forced me to wake with (I woke up shivering very violently and visibly, only to remember later why I did, continue reading to find out). Maybe it would have meant something, had I reached the conclusion... if any conclusion. It lasted I'd have to say a good 3 hours. My sleep. And the dream. I tried to fall back asleep but I was shivering too much to be able to. I felt like I was being watched. The closest I can find online that suits it are a type of dream known as an endless maze dream, which makes sense seeing as these 2 rooms had many exits. The first room was a rectangle shape, with an impossible to be real log, because it was bent oddly on a waterfall, sloped to give one access to climb up said waterfall. The water fell into a pool, and there was no river feeding it at the top. It too was endlessly looping. There were fireflies flittering about, although no less than 2 and no more than 4 at a time. They weren't bugs as much as just balls of dim light, though. There was a barrier of trees on top of the room's walls, and they covered overhead enough to make an impassible ceiling. There were 3 exits on top of the waterfall ledge, along with a massive tree stump. 2 were made out of logs and another was just a tunnel. At the low end there were... 4 exits. There were 2 small white flowerbeds. The exits were also made of logs, these logs were quite massive, mind you. And there was a boulder. All along my vision lines were uneven sets of eyes, one eye being a little higher than it's pair, glowing yellow and looked more like glowing yellow vertical ovals. They were bobbing up and down as if belonging to a creature. The voices were in the dozens, shouting sometimes, other times just talking, but they were all never at the same volume, and they were definitely from these things. The second room was a Horizontal rectangle shape. There was another log more like a root going from near the entry (all 7 doors lead to the same entrance, same goes for room #2 but leads to the same entry of room #1), and the root was mangled slightly but still walkable. It was covered in moss and every other ground there was a glass kettle of tea on a tray with 3 small cups. There were also 7 exits. One was at the top of the root, a tunnel. The root went over a pond/small lake, the lake was a half oval on the northern wall. there were 2 exits on either side of the lake, and then 4 exits, 2 on the southern wall and 1 each in the southwest and southeast corners. There were 2 flowerbeds, colored blue and pink this time. The creatures inhabited this room as well. As the 'maze' went on the flowers started dying, the water got sludgier and anything green was turning purple slowly. More of the yellow eyed creatures appeared as I went deeper and deeper. The treebark, wall, and rock stayed their colors - yellowish cream. At the end of the dream I was in room #2 and I think went into seizure and lost control, fell to the ground and my vision went all over, blurred, faded, went dark, I died in the dream. And then I woke. And the seizure at the end of the dream was probably why I was shaking and shivering so violently. But I'm unsure.

Strange re-enactments of subconscious memory related to our daily lives and/or repressed memories relived.
It is also defense mechanism of ours to predict and hypothesize scenarios, and/or day-dream scenarios which may also be thrown in the mix.
(And/or perhaps even previous lives, or the lives of others dredged up from the vast abyss of unconsciousness which is also the realm of psychic phenomena)

If you've ever experienced realities while in lower levels of consciousness/sleep which are inescapable situations/nightmares. (Realities are different than dreams, even life it's self in the waking state is reality)
These are malevolent beings.

There is also the incubus and succubus of which I have never encountered, these are thought to be sexual demons.

Then there is sleep paralysis. (Also often thought to be the activities of malevolence)
For me, sleep paralysis is a clue.
You dream you have to wake up from the nightmare your in, but actually dreamed you woke up in the same nightmare from which you had to awaken from again.
Spiritualists believe we can awaken further from our awakened state, because when we're awake, we are just in an extension of the dream state. (But of course this takes much conscious effort, look within and not outwardly)

Quotations from The Bible a Mystic and a Sage.

Thessalonians Chapter 4:
13 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

Ephesians chapter 5.
14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

Ps. 17:15
As for me, I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.

There is reference to suggest we the children once knew God.

First Epistle, John 2:
13 I write unto you, fathers, because ye have known him that is from the beginning. I write unto you, young men, because ye have overcome the wicked one. I write unto you, little children, because ye have known the Father.

◄ Mark 8:18 ►
Do you have eyes but fail to see, and ears but fail to hear? And don't you remember?

“Sleep not"; "Awake, for you know not the hour"
George gurdjieff (September 26, 1898 – July 11, 1937)

He who is forgetful of the Self, mistaking the physical body for it, and goes through innumerable births, is like one who wanders all over the world in a dream. Thus, realizing the Self would only be like waking up from the dream­wanderings.
Sri Ramana Maharshi (December 30, 1879 – April 14, 1950)
