Synopsis
The 5th dimension is the dream dimension. The creatures there are trying to pass into this dimension, but belief in their existence as opposed to surmising a mere dream experience disrupts the structure of the dream dimension and forces the creatures to withdraw from our world. The narrator sells his story to Strange Tales to encourage readers to believe in the creatures and frustrate their invasion aspirations.
