Primary revision is a psychoanalytical term used to describe the process of creating latent content so the unconscious can shield a person from direct feelings or problems during a dream.

The primary revision is made up of two parts:

condensation- which takes several feelings or experiences and places them in one actor or symbol in the dream in order to keep them obscure.

displacement- is the placing of a neutral or positive actor or symbol in a dream where a negitive actor or symbol should be.

After the unconscious has revised the dream using primary revision, you are left with the manifest content or the dream you actually "see".
