During a dream, I have heard that we are visiting the other side of the world for a little while. In reality, we have the concepts of time and space, but dreams do not have these concepts. The dream world is the proper form of the universe, and I am reminded of the discourse in Zhuangzi's "The Butterfly Dream". Modern science also holds that the universe was born out of thought. This space that we perceive as reality is built on very vague elements, and the boundary between the real and the unreal is extremely thin. However, it may be important to always be aware of the boundary between common sense and the insane, and to maintain equilibrium between the both sides.
