Wikipedia explains that Dreamtime was first coined by anthropologists to explain the Indigenous world view. I guess my question is, did they get it right? Is it valid? And can it really be explained?
I’ll tell you one thing. I always thought Dreamtime was an allegory until I heard an Aboriginal person on the telly explaining that for them, it was all true! That it was their story of how the lands around them were physically created. Total spin out.
I can’t help but feel that Dreamtime was a misleading term.
