AND WHAT ARE DREAMS, ANYWAY? ARE THEY JUST CONCEPTS OUR UNCONSCIOUS mind creates to keep us awake and somewhat aware even while we lie in a state of near-death? Manifestations of our thoughts, our desires, our fears, and things we don’t even understand. Manifestations of the world we have yet to comprehend, trying to nudge us little by little into the dark reality we will slowly discover as we grow up. Maybe this is our mind’s way of learning constantly when we can’t be interacting with the world as we sleep. The truth is no one truly knows what dreams are. I still don’t know what they are, and I’ve dreamed my whole life. I was raised by dreams, and by nightmares. They’re all I know. Sometimes my dreams feel far more real than reality ever does.
