Hello... I have read that in Hindu mythology Lord Vishnu is considered
a god who is "dreaming the world"... that is, the universe IS his
dream and if he wakes up the world will end.

I also heard that many mythologies have dieties like this, but try as
I might I cannot find any of them. If you could either list some of
these dieties for me, or reference me to a way to find these other
such dieties, that would be wonderful.

I need to find gods with the exact attributes that reality is in their
minds and that if they wake, reality will end.

Thnk you!!!

Will you consider fictional entities, or do you need only deities from
actual religions?
There is no answer at this time.

Vishnu is not dreaming of the world; Vishnu is all-knowing of the
World, he is the Preserver of the World, he maintains life.

There is nothing in the Gita (Scriptures) that remotely suggest Vishnu dreams.
