What does it mean to identify with experience of an other when, in order to do that, one must look a way from one self? Meaning, and the path to its creation, what have they both to do with the other?
The creative potential of the "dream state" is remarkable. Perhaps moreso, the condition required to dream. Whether night or day, the I - it would seem - is singled out. At night when going to sleep, attention changes. When day dreaming too.
An other experience, or an other dream. What does it mean? What is it? It, being a word. It being an objective experience. What is it?
And how comes it that any thing is separate from an observer? Or, in fact, is this even the case? What if it is not separate and never was? but, in fact, the phenomena of any thing existing separately from an observer is only the substance of a dream? The experience of an imaginary other?
All things existing like other imaginary parts of one self - independence granted then - afforded freedom would manifest through the agency of the unconscious dreamer. One, unconscious of all separate forms. One, unconscious of all it dreams.
Are you conscious of any external thing to the point of knowing it like itself? And if there is always an element of mystery, what is that mystery? Is the observer responsible for somehow creating it? Responsible for dreaming it? Is the observer responsible for unconsciousness? Responsible for dreaming? If so, then the observable universe would exist relative to the state of awareness used to measure it. It would be relative to the body and vehicle of awareness, perhaps.
Dreaming removes, or suspends, the ordinary sense of bodily awareness. And with that, dreaming explores potential creation. Form it is, that experience of gravity. A dream remembered. Conscious experience.
