It's a belief, a thought which is seen as being true.Is this more than a thought in awareness?I know that I am here
Dreams feel different from being awake. You usually don't know that you're dreaming, because it seems that part of your mind isn't fully functioning.If you only know that you were dreaming, after you wake up. How do you know that you aren't dreaming this ? (albeit a "realistic' dream. - you've probably had them before.)
But, I don't know that this isn't some sort of a dream.
