Things like habits that are mechanical. Also some forms of reason or activity as when we say, someone is like a machine, acting without thought or feeling.
A machine may also be used to represent your body’s automatic processes, especially something like the heart that goes on pumping away year after year.
In some dreams people use a huge machine, like the Juggernaut, to depict the relentless activities that take place in the world that can, with apparent carelessness, roll over people claiming their life through illness or other calamity.
Intricate machine: Brain or the thinking process in its mechanical habitual form. The habitual, almost mechanical fantasies we have or things we do. The word juggernaut is from Sanskrit Jaganatha, lord of the world. Devotees formerly threw themselves under a huge cart – a juggernaut – as it moved. Such a huge machine can represent the massive social organisations we are bound up in. Some of us relate well to this process that goes on its way blind to individuals; some are ground under by its demands.
Old machine: If the machines are inn good order, the it suggest that what you did or built with your life are still productive. But is there is any problems it may be best to get rid of the old habits or ways of life, and built a new way.
Example: ‘I am in charge of a life machine which keeps the world going. Unless I tend it all the time it may stop, and I am terrified. I hear a pulsating noise, or imagine I do.’ Mr. P. E.
Here the machine represents the heart, and the dreamer’s anxious relationship with the body’s functioning and processes. See: Engine.
Idioms: Cog in the machine.
