Further exposition on the point of dreams and reality

August 21, 2006

Argument 1

Clear logical view for the matrix type view

1) In a dream you don’t know ‘reality’

2) In ‘reality’ you don’t know ‘Reality’ (referring to the Matrix’s Zion or whatever)

Rephrased:

In D, r is not  known

In r, R is not known

Therefore is there any real difference between D and r (aka dream and reality)?

 Argument 2

In the idealist view, the known ‘reality’ can only consist with certainty of the mind. Dreams are ‘part’ of the mind, in all probabilty. Experiences in a dream are not discernably different from experiences in reality (you have your senses, you have -usually- memory of dreams, etc) So there should be no proper distinction between the two?
