Life in a Dream is Real

We dream. All the time we dream. Daytime dreams have been coined as ‘Day Dreaming’, which in essence is recognizing creative imagination in the conscious state. If one recalls dreams as do I, a parallel world to the conscious state is recreated within a sleep state. It’s really wild as I can most all the time remember my dreams on a nightly basis.

An article on sleep in Healthline describes the following: Hypnagogia is the transitional state of consciousness between wakefulness and sleep. It’s the opposite of hypnopompia, which is the transitional state that occurs before you wake up.

Then there is a sleep state termed as hypnagogic hallucinations. This is when dreams are really crazy and sometimes upsetting. The research is like any other research can be… a cable-knit sweater that just goes on and on.

There have been times when after waking up I realize all that just happened was ‘only a dream’. Depends on the manifested dream whether I’m rather disappointed, glad, or just indifferent. I love to dream, I am a dreamer in both my sleep and conscious state. The ‘positive’, whatever it may be, is always a possibility. Always. Dreams are just as real to me as when I am in my conscious awake state. They’re fascinating. They spark individual creativity and often find solutions to ‘real-life’ issues. They are exciting.

Life in my dreams is real, but then again how do I really know that my ‘conscious state’ is any more real than a dream itself?
