I know the general meaning of "regress". However, I think in the following context it means more like "dive into and float in". Am I right?

His aesthetic can be aligned with ideas in the 1970s that perceived the cinema screen as a dream screen that encourages the viewer to regress into a hypnoid state and the ‘work’ of cinema in Jean-Luc Godard’s sense as being to awaken us from this dream by using disjunctive strategies in filmmaking (Art and Psychoanalysis by Maria Walsh).
