What is a dream?

A dream is not a story, not a movie or text or a cheater play. A dream is a happening in space, an articulation of space… In that space we experience things we can talk about upon awakening as a dream story. But the dream story is not the dream itself. The dream itself is a texture woven of space and time inside which we find ourselves. During the dream we believe we are awake, in the same way that we believe we are awake when we truly are… ~ Robert Bosnak
