What Are Dreams

Have you ever wondered what a dream really is?

Is it just a fragment of your imagination, or is it something...more?

Great philosophers throughout the ages have been stumped by this question, and rightly so, for it is one which does not have a proper answer. Some will liken it to a Koan, that intentionally misleads the listener into a false dichotomy. Others will say that the question is correctly posed, but should preferably be framed in its inverse form: What are dreams Not?

Myself, I have, as always, a practical view on the matter: Dreams make me sleep!

But is is nevertheless fun to philosophize...
