This is a pretty huge topic for this space.Emanuel Swedenborg was a Swedish (yes his last name tips us off!) inventor who began to  experience dreams and visions in 1744. It was said that they started coming to him on Easter. Some of these the content of his dreams were said to be somewhere between mystic and madness. Blake persued Swedenborg's ideas that tap the imagination and the mythic. You will have to dig a little more because there is much to this topic.
