Anyone frequently experience dreams where you realize it's a dream but don't wake up and stay there a while? The amount of control you have at that point is unreal. I was able to create my surroundings.
yes, it happens to me. But I arrived at a point when the creation of the surrounding turn into a "videogame surronding". It made me realise that all you can really control is oneself, because when you try to control the reality, it turn into a mirage, a false world, an illusion.
I also had dreams where when a woke up, I thought I was awake, only to find that there was something fishy about it and finally realise I was in fact still in a dream. When this happens, It, really hard to try to break that dream to escape it.
As for the "physical realm" In a way it's all there is but the knowledge, the interpretation of it differs on the level of consciousness of the "observer"
As William Blake once said "A fool sees not the same tree that a wise man sees."
