"Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot."

-- Dream Of The Endless

Physical Characteristics

As a member of the family of the Endless, Dream is actually an abstract entity; he's a wave-function, a motif, a pattern, an echo in the darkness. He is not a physical being:

Sandman #48

Dream and his family are consistently referenced as immortals; they have no true "end" nor any true "beginning" they simply are eternal:

Dream is unphased by a knife piercing his skin:

Morpheus no-sells lasers:

Dream no-sells an attack powerful enough to disperse fabric and matter:

Dream feels the pain of a universe coming into existance(note that the writer of Sandman uses the term "universe" synonymously with multiverse and creation, thus this can easily exceed a universal durability feat):

Photokinesis

Dream has the capability to generate and manipulate light:

Dream Manipulation and Telepathy

Morpheus, as Dream of the Endless, has power over the dreams of all living beings. He can use this power to put people to sleep and influence their dreams:

Sandman #1

Dream is the ruler of the Dreaming, the realm of dreams and thus he is the lord of Dreams and Nightmares:

It's noted that Allah(the person is Muslim, so he's actually referring to Yahweh) gave Morpheus dominion over all that was not, is not and will never be:

Dream can use these dreams to travel across Creation:

Dream is the one who shapes his realm and without him it decays, implying the Dreaming is dependant on his power:

Sandman #2

Keep in mind that the realm of the Dreaming is an infinite, ever-expanding kingdom, easily the size of a universe or larger:

This is later also implied by Mervyn:

The Power Of Dream

As one of the Endless, Dream is a manifestation of one of the primal truths of the universe and looks over one of the aspects of reality:

Dream is too powerful for someone like Hyppolyta Hall, the Fury, to even touch without a shockwave blasting her back:

Dream can easily destroy a star:

Dream's dreamstone, which only holds a portion of his power, has the capability to destroy the Dreamworld(which, like I mentioned earlier, is infinite/larger than a universe):

Hades and Persephone, as well as the other God's of the underworld, respect and fear Morpheus:

Dream giving a portion of his power to his gatekeepers would allow them to kill/destroy his visitors(in the context of this scan, his visitors are the Gods of Asgard, the Gods of Egypt, the manifestation of Order and the manifestation of Chaos):

Dream easily stomps Azazel, one of the rulers of Hell alongside Beezlebub and Lucifer Morningstar, frightening several Gods in the process:

Morpheus is not intimidated by the Princess of Chaos, the very manifestation of Chaos(i.e. the being the Lords of Chaos -- beings more powerful than the Phantom Stranger and rivals of the likes of Nabu -- draw their powers from):

Desire fears Dream and does not believe she could stand against his power:

Nice

I think The Dreaming should be bigger than the universe.

In The Dreaming#2 there is a place in the Dreaming called The Dream Exchange where they trade dreams and it seems like every dream is a reality in the Dreaming

@morningdawn12: Thanks. And yeah, the Dreaming is definitely bigger than even the Multiverse, I'd wager.
