haha, well it depends on how you look at things.
we each posses unique mind and body. Unique experiences.
so first I would like to direct you to these threads:
than a question: what is reality and what is a dream?
in a dream, you have a body, when you wake up, where is that body?
you can say it is all only in the mind?
but what about normal waking "consciousness" is this reality real?
read the first linked thread and think again.
It is also ALL in the mind.
well going by this research, at least.
what is than the difference?
only the length or duration in my opinion.
"dreams" are usually shorter and not connected,
while "life" is one "dream".
Well depending if you are on drugs, it may also appear not connected under some influence, hehe
so asking such questions is wonderful,
but the answer may surprise you,
if you really decide to go down this rabbit hole.
From absolute spiritual perspective, they are one, hence the " ".
