what you had when you experienced realizing that you were in a dream is called Lucid dreaming.
I've always pondered if dreams were real because if they were a manufacture of the brain then how do you know if this reality is real or not and
simply manufactured in the brain, actually, how do you know your not dreaming right now?
I was told once in a dream that dreams were other realities, since then i've always believed that we do some kind of quantum jumping.
They say '___' produced in the pineal gland is responsible for dreams and they call it the spirit molecule. The Ancient Egyptians believed the pineal
gland was the seat of the soul. The Bible says that man is a trinity of Body, Soul, and spirit. The word psyche means soul, and is of the mind.
What you are doing, in my experience, Is that you are accessing yourself in another reality when you dream, This is what makes the most sense to me, I
believe that dreams are real and whenever possible, when you realize you are dreaming, you must assume that you are experiencing another reality, an
alternative timeline, if you will.
my 2 cents.
Quantum physicists say that everything that ever could have happened or will happen has already happened in another universe or parallel
timeline. The many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics says that every quantum event creates a parralel timeline or universe (Reality.) Albert
Einstein said that for us physicists the seperation between past, present, and future is an illusion.
I once read an article where it was said that some scientists believe that Quantum theory proves that consciousness goes to another universe at death.
You may be seeing your dead loved ones in a dream and it might actually be them. The Old Testament prophets were said to heavily rely on dreams. I
always try to search for prophetic significance in my dreams because i believe that consciousness can go to another universe.
My grandfather passed away a few years ago yet in my dream i tried to hug him and I told him I thought he was dead. He told me that he wasnt ready for
that hug yet. Since then i occasionally have dreams that he is alive and well.
