Whose dream are you in?...

Listen: We are all characters in a dream.

Other people have dreams and we are in them. Hasn't anyone ever told you, "I had a dream last night and you were in it." If you were sleeping in your bed while this person dreamed, who was the "you" in that dream? Who played YOU? Was it just a fragment of that person's subconscious? If this is so, what does it mean that they're playing you? How close are you to that person that they are you? How intimate is that? Or, perhaps, were you playing yourself in that dream? Is the subconscious world some kind of Jungian collective subconscious? Do we drift from our own dreams into the dreams of others? Maybe they are all the same dream as we are all on the same world - all of us seeing it through our own eyes.

What does it mean to be in different places at once? Multiple dreams? Multiple realities?

The possibilities of it open you up to worlds, thus far at least, undreamed.
