The Probability That You Are Dreaming Right Now? 1 in 10.

The fabric and nature of reality has long been the subject of science, philosophy, media propaganda, and even entertainment, in films like Abre los ojos (Open Your Eyes) (remade in 2001 as Vanilla Sky). In Reality: A Very Short Introduction (public library) from Oxford University Press, philosophy professor and metaphysics researcher Jan Westerhoff explores the enormously difficult, yet enormously alluring question of what is really real. Among the book’s most fascinating mind-benders is this passage on the probability — the jarringly high probability, if all the math and hypotheticals check out — that you are dreaming right now:

Reality is all in our collective minds. The universe is an ocean of minds fighting for dominance. Minds inside minds its neverending but it only take THE ONE to realize all is one and one I AM.

In all fairness, I have rather boring dreams, nothing to warrant an even interesting discussion...

What is the difference between reality and a dream?

One is reality and the other a dream.

Dream: You are married to the foxy girl on the video. Reality: need I say more.

Am I alone in this or do others here share in this dream phenom?

You are not alone, I agree having had the same dream experience, yet until this moment I never thought about it: took this for granted.

There IS often poignant deeply impressive symbolism, in my case involving wild and domestic animals making a dramatic entry on the dream stage. It is effectively (subjective term) dream language because at waking I cannot but ponder or even anguish (this is my younger persona) over its seemingly IMPORTANT however also ELUSIVE meaning.

Some are 'easy' to solve, like when I remember just dreaming about adventures in some large city, and my cats run with me, it is my soul reminding me I love my cats. (We used to have cats and dogs which have since passed on, and I still dream about them too.)

edit: I almost forgot answering to topic question. I believe daily waking life (reality) and dreams are different. In the sense they feel and look like different locations. Also the people and pets that I lost to death in this life I do not see again here on Earth, but I do regularly encounter them in my dreams. Goes to 'location'. Dead persons have gone from our reality to a spirit realm. As dreamers we may visit those places (and meet loved ones again), while in daily life I am unable to access the worlds of the dead.

Dream is reality. Reality is dream. Such to think is why you trust reality of your on. Who is other that can be experience as yours. All see as you, All here as you. No just a general agreement on very basic view that is satisfying to comfort for you. Your reality can not be that of mine and mine can not be of you. Only a seeming agree gives any view as being same. I think good for this frees both from each of the other one. I go where you do not go and you go where I will not be to go.

Darn! I was going to recommend a really old book that answered this question in a way that has stayed with me for decades, but it seems that the author has a "new improved" version out and the old one doesn't come up on Amazon. I can't vouch for the new one.

The old one was Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz, and I think it had an orange and white cover. Oh, found it!

http://www.amazon.com/Psycho-Cybernetics-New-More-Living-Life/dp/0671700758

The gist of the interesting part was that they did a study on three groups of people. I think people call it the Basketball Study now.

One group was told to practice basketball free throws for 20 mins a day. The second group was told not to touch a basketball, but to practice MENTALLY for 20 mins a day. The third group was prohibited from thinking about basketball, watching it, or playing it.

All were tested before and after. The results were that the group who practiced mentally improved almost as much as the group that practiced physically. What this proves is that our mind can affect our reality. Every thought we think can affect our physical reality.

I suppose you know that the quote relates to moonlight, not to dreams.

Drwu,

I'll have to change machines to watch your link. For some reason I can't watch videos on this laptop.

But from the top of my head I do know that the full quote is..

Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
removes the colour from our sight.
Red is blue and yellow white
but we decide which is right
and which is an illusion.

I think it is from the Moody Blues 'Threshold of a dream'
LP.

No doubt I'll find that is what you have just told me.

Drwu,

Just watched your clip.

It was the one I expected.

But I got the colours wrong.

They say 'red is grey' I remembered it as red is blue.
