Longer observation (6): Everything is Real: Speaking informally, in ordinary language, not scientifically or even logically, we can say, from a psychological angle, that everything is real, but, at the same time, it is also part of the Imagination, part of our Thoughts, and filled with our Feelings and Emotions.

Short idea (30): For whatever it's worth: I've come to believe that either there are two realities or one reality with two "faces." I prefer the second. If true, then one face appears in our dreams, and the other appears when we wake up.

Longer Observation (9): Imagination & Reality: Forgetting the difference between Imagination and Reality.

"Big" Dream 3 (September, 2013)

(from the series of "Big" dreams)

This is not a "big" dream in the sense of its subject being of importance to more than the dreamer. The dreamer did not feel the dream was of importance to anyone but himself. I give it here because it is an example of a powerfully disturbing nightmare that feels real. Even if a dream is "only a dream," it can feel real and powerful and important, often as much as waking experiences.

Short idea (85): To the young, old age and death seem as unreal as a dream. To the old and dying, youth and life feel no different than last night's dreams.

Short idea (200): Perhaps the most seductive things in the world are words — including the words that come into your head.
