Philosophy Wire: Am I dreaming?


Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2016-09-19]: Do bearded dragons dream? Researchers describe the existence of REM and slow-wave sleep in the Australian dragon, with many common features with mammalian sleep: a phase characterized by low frequency/high amplitude average brain activity and rare and bursty neuronal firing (slow-wave sleep); and another characterized by awake-like brain activity and rapid eye movements. [1] Like Jung who dreamt of himself being in the dream of a yogi man, who are we to judge if something else is dreaming? Look around. Is it you? Are you here? Are you real? Are you dreaming of that dragon or is that dragon dreaming of you? In a world made of dreams, only the ones who do not judge but just Are, are.
