What does it mean when you dream about depth?
Any sense of depth, particularly going down, in a dream usually represents the unconscious mind. This can be accompanied by feelings of discovery or dread. “Deep” is also found in a number of interesting idioms, such as at the “deep end” or in “deep water.” One can be deeply hurt or deeply troubled.
