Dreaming of conducting an experiment may symbolize your latent Oedipal complex, a Freudian concept, where you seek to assert dominance and intellectual superiority.

Likewise — It could also be a kind of your subconscious attempt to rationalize and dissect your emotional world. Conversely, being part of an experiment in a dream may denote feelings of vulnerability, akin to the Freudian concept of castration anxiety. It suggests a fear of being exposed or scrutinized, or a sense of powerlessness. Both dream scenarios, while seemingly disparate, are fundamentally about control and vulnerability, two opposing facets of the human psyche. They reflect the eternal struggle between the id, the primal instinct, and the superego, the moral conscience.0
