Is life a dream??
PostPosted: Tue 05 Feb, 2008  Reply with quote

has anyone else considered the possibility that life itself is a universal dream?
that the world is merely a projection of the universal consciousness?

i'm interested as to what people think about this.

Yep.

...

Okay, I'll say more. tounge2

It sure does feel like a dream. Constantly. It might be that mind disorder they've yet to decide upon, but I'm always tired and either:

A. Feel like the world's my dream.

B. Feel like I'm a mindless DC in someone else's.

Tis odd. Good topic.

Oh dear. Don't let me get into an epistemology discussion. Not again! I won't go back!

...

Because we have no way of validating our senses' accuracy without using our senses, it is possible that the external world is an elaborate illusion and that we live in an Ancestor Simulation. It is entirely possible, I daresay even likely, that we are an advanced computer program being conducted by another reality. We can not ever truly know if our reality is the "real" one.

But first, we should define "real" in the first place.

WOW! What if the world and everything around you is just a mindless program that a superior alien race is using to keep the last earthling(you) from using your complex human mind from destroying thier ancient race?! lach1 I don't know. Maybe i should write a book.

Well. I really believe in the world we see, that we exist in our universe and there's no bigger concious controlling us than ourselves.

But how do we know? Nobody cannot know for sure.

But that's just my belief!

it's funny that any belief of anything can exist.
because there is never any proof.
we have to assume so much for any belief to make sense.

anyone who believes in ockham's razor has to be a devoted atheist.

If life is a dream, I fail at being lucid.

If life is a dream then I'm lucid all the time. siiw

Or maybe true lucidity can only be attained by Zen Masters. meditate

How can you be lucid all the time?

If lucidity is knowing one is dreaming and one believes life to be real, then if life is a dream none of us are lucid.

If real life feels like it's a dream when you sleep and the dream feels like a dream when you wake. But both feel real in when experiencing them as they happen, is it not then possible that neither is actually real and we have yet to wake unto our selves?

I'm going to bed now, perhaps to close my eyes so that I may awaken.

If life is a dream, death is when we wake up.
Maybe life is just a dream, and when we die we will awake into our "real life". Then, when our "real" version of us goes back to sleep, we come back here, to Earth, but as a different person. Almost like reincarnation....

...If life is just a dream, death is when we wake up...What happened before we were born? What will happen to us when we die? What I just said would answer both of these questions...
Maybe before we were born was when our "real"-selfs went to sleep. And when we die our "real"-selfs wake up.

I don't believe ALL from what I said. And I know I basicly repeated the same thing twice, but worded differently. I did that because the way I explained it, in my opinion, was very confusing. overspannen
