comment Generic title for children redux & referring to self in the context of children
I realised my question could have been interpreted differently. I edited the question to better represent what I wanted to ask. For situations 1 & 2, it is a 3rd person speaking to the two children instead of the two children with each other.

comment Do you need to use の when using へ to modify a noun?
is it possible to interpret it by splitting it into 願いや野望や空想が知らない次元へ as one part, and ドアをたたく as the other part? The two parts wouldn't interact syntactically. For the front part, can it be analyzed as 願い/野望 are going towards 空想が知らない次元, with the traversal verb elided?
