So the Dream World is like another, evanescent, "everything-world" that exists only in the unconscious of mortals (and immortals? Can immortals even be unconscious, or are they eternally "awake-yet-dreaming"?)

Presumably if they were even aware of it, Lunar dream-magicians would mock this position; obviously this 'Avanpdur' is simply a being of the dreams which the primitive Vithelans feel the need to repress and deny - rather than embrace, accept, and Include as the civilised open-eyed Lunars do.*
