This morning I awoke from a strange dream - they are all strange, but this was especially so due to the fact that whilst dreaming I had a small
suspicion that I was in fact... dreaming. The content of the dream is ineffectual, but safe to say it was a little uncomfortable, but not
mid-numbingly fearful like some I have had.
After becoming awake I found that 90% of my experinces in this dream quickly disappeared after 5 minutes or so, but I could remember the point in the
dream when I became suspicious that I was in fact dreaming and actually wanted to awake to reality (so to speak). I can remember that I had in fact no
memory of my recent existance in reality (the real world) and that everything around me looked perfectly fine...
Now this got me to thinking about a theory I heard somewhere that every possible outcome is played out in an infinite amount of universes, ie if I
crossed the road, if I didn't, if I turned left instead of right, etc, etc.
Thinking on this I thought maybe dreams are an echo of the thoughts and experiences of yourself in one of these infinite alternative universes, maybe
one just tags along on a spirtual level and hence does not have any real effect in the other, alternative universe and is basically only a passive
observer. This "passive observation" could be why there is a lack of recall for many of the dreams we have, due to the fact that you are not
actually in your own head at the time of dreaming (spiritually speaking of course) - and maybe the recall we do have is somesort of cross over that
occurs when you return...
Sorry I don't really understand myself what I am talking about here, I am only writing some of my thoughts to see if others may have some kind of
view on this subject.
Now on the flip flop...
If dreams are in fact "staged in our own heads" imagine the possibility of actually harnesing them and "programming" the type of dream you would
like to have... this kind of entertainment compared to todays cutting edge VR would be like comparing your pentium4 computer the a commodore64, safe
to say it would be the coolest freakin thing.
So instead of wasting your night sleeping and putting up with all sorts of random, junk dreams - you could be experienceing dream reality in all sorts
of exciting ways, from being James Bond 007 to playing out your wildest sexual fantasies.... All in the comfort of your own head
Anyway I look forward to hearing your thoughts on dreams and their uses....
