More reverie hunger

Someone who, dreaming, says "I am dreaming", even if he speaks audibly in doing so, is no more right than if he said in his dream "it is raining", while it was in fact raining. Even if his dream were actually connected with the noise of the rain.
Wittgenstein, On Certainty, entry 676.

  1. It is claimed elsewhere that it is possible through proceeding by degrees to bring one's sleeping consciousness to a level where ones 'dream awareness' is so specialized that one is not only aware that one is dreaming but can control and even manipulate the unfolding events in the dream etc..
