I was just thinking, and you know how when your dreaming (unless its a lucid dream) you always think the dream is real life? well, then how do you know that right here, right now, what you think to be real life is in actuallity nothing but a dream? I personally don't beleive this, it just makes you think......

Decarte and Thomas Nagel thought along the same lines of this.

I can separate reality from dream because I know that my senses are never fully functional (to my conscious knowledge) when I am dreaming, even if it is a lucid dream.

I often times forget that the lucid dream is just a dream until I wake up and look back on it.

and were you never to wake up, you could just go on dreaming forever 'till your blood turned to dust and your flesh to ash and from this world you slipped, happy in your ignorant belief that you had led a good life, when you had really never lived at all

you might want to leaf through some quantum physics. In theory we could all be a cell in a single larger organism, and that could go on infinatly through time and space with one thing always existing and being more.

Ultimatly, we'll never know of course. But its facinating to mull over.

of course, if we are but a cell in some greater organism, which is but a cell in some greater organism and so forth, then going backwards their could be entire worlds existing in just a single cell of one of your fingers

it is all very interesting, of course you could spend hours, days, even years mulling over such topics and still not come to any conclusive end

Some magical writings maintain that there are worlds within us and worlds without. That does make sense, for the atomic level and below is ripe with life but unlike the manner of life we comprehend. The life of a particle is not our life, yet it exists.

There is much insight about the "hows" and "whys" of magic that can be learned by examining the relationship of within and without, especially on subtle levels. The more we think and come to conclusions, the more understanding we can seperate out and use to increase our knowledge base. And of course, as we comprehend we evolve spiritually. So, by all means indulge your thoughts :)
