Interpretation by Contraposition

Some dreams are interpreted to mean the opposite when the elements are
related. This tradition comes from examples such as crying when one is extremely
happy; or when laughing in the face of adversities; or seeing the sun and
the moon fighting and interpreting it as a fight between two people; or calling
a flood an enemy and an enemy a flood, because both are destructive; or when
eating a fig in a dream to mean regret and regret to mean eating a fig, because
the fig tree is accursed in some traditions; or when one sees himself dead in a
dream, though even if he does not have the look of dead people to mean losses
or destruction of part of one’s house; or interpreting locusts as warriors and
warriors as locusts, because ofthe destruction they both cause to a land; etcetera.
