If this is a dream, then what about love? What about all the other emotions? I had a dream about a woman. The connection we had was as real as any. When I became conscious the emotion remained, an unconscious remnant within consciousness.
What is now just a memory is just like all the other experiences I have had either conscious or not. If an emotion is tied to a memory, even if the memory isn’t within the shared physical material realm, is it real? If not then why not?
If I believe in love then why would I disregard it in any form that it takes? A positive emotion void of attachment should not be dismissed. For a brief time it manifested within me, a creation that was beyond me.
Meditation an dreaming are now the same, in between consciousness and the unconscious.
