    Sometimes I wonder

    So does that mean that when we dream of things that look like an acid wonderland, we're actually just waking up and seeing the horrifying world around us??

    The difference between dream and reality is this.
    --In reality we experience information taken in by our senses (sight, hearing).
    --In a dream we create the information ourselves.

    Therefore if you learn something new you must be awake.

    Go on wikipedia, if you find yourself learning a lot you are awake.

    But what if we dream up a universe in which we could learn new information about?

    I guess it comes down to your mental capacity. Do you think you have the ability to create 1000s of wikipedia pages loaded with mundane information in seconds?

    I don't think I do. I also don't think I'm capable of designing entire new video games as I play them - or surprising myself with a twist as I read a book.

    No, that isn't the reason. My problem is actually something bad that I have to live with every day and it's something that VERY few people actually understand. It's something that I've tried to bury over the years but I can't get rid of and it's slowly been destroying me.
