The origins of the imperative, "know thyself", are lost in the sands of time, but the age-old examination of human consciousness continues here.

Are dreams an alternative reality?

Postby Maia » Fri Nov 16, 2018 5:56 pm

Many, perhaps most of my dreams, are set in places I've dreamt about before. A few are based on places in the real world, but most aren't. There are quite a lot of these different dream settings, but each one is familiar, and each time I'm there I learn something new about it. Surely this is significant in some way, whether or not they represent an alternative reality, or something else. I also, incidentally, tend to dream in cycles. I might gor for a few days with no dreams at all that I remember, followed by a few days of intense ones.

Dreams are an extension of reality because everything is connected to everything else

No, dreams are a manifestation of subconscious and suppressed, desires and fears.

Dreams are a distortion of reality.
