The moment I read your post the first thing I thought of was something I read recently about the idea of a holographic universe. I don't remember
exactly where it was I read this article (I'll see if I can find it), but the way this guy illustrates a point really got me to thinking. His point
was to show how things in the universe could be more connected than anyone ever realized. It had to do with an experiment done that showed possible
evidence of subatomic particles communicating with each other instantaneously, which is a violation of Einstein's theory of relativity (nothing
travels faster than light). While I think the experiment's results were controversial and perhaps inconclusive in regards to methodology, currently
there is no fairly accurate way to see for sure. Some guy came along and developed a theory of a holographic universe based on these findings and
made the following illustration:
Suppose you have a fish tank and in it is one fish. You have 2 cameras pointing at the tank from different angles, one facing the front, the other
the side. You as an observer are unaware of the cameras and are only aware of the fish and roughly, the edges of the tank. From your perspective,
there are 2 fish. However these fish have a certain relationship to each other that when one faces forward, the other faces the side instantaneously.
This being quite odd from your perspective, you gather they are communicating in a special way. The reality of it is not that they are sending some
sort of mysterious signal back and forth, but because their seperateness is an illusion.
As far as the dream in it's entirety goes, I'm not much of a dream expert....but I too have had some of the most vivid dreams that cause me to
wake up and ponder my existance. ...dreams are also a funny thing in that everyone has them.
