Let’s suppose that every night you were able to dream any dream you wanted to dream. And that you had the power in one night to imagine 75 years of time. What would you do in that dream?
If swimming like a mermaid with giant humpback whales isn’t on your list, you should really consider re-thinking how you want to spend your dream time.
Well, these three fantasy chasers strapped on a few GoPros and their most whimsical mermaid bikinis, taking on a lucid dream of a life time and turning it into a reality. I know we’ve all at one point or another dreamt of swimming with these majestic creatures, listening to their love songs as they echo across the depths of the sea. Swimming alongside these colossal mammals of the ocean would definitely be a dream come true for any one of us!
To see these lovely ladies take what most of us only experience in our sleep and bring it to the waking world is truly a breathtaking vision to see. And to have the whole thing narrated by Alan Watts is a philosophical mind blow that will leave lasting impressions deep within your sub-conscious.
So what if you could dream a 75 year dream, what would you do? Where would you go?
Naturally you would want to begin to fulfill all your wildest fantasies, getting lost in the farthest out adventures you could imagine.Would you dive in to the deepest parts of the ocean or maybe you really want to hug a wild lion?
The possibilities are endless! You are only bound by the span of your imagination. So the real question is… How big can you dream?
But here’s the thing about a dream. Most times you don’t know you’re dreaming until you’ve awaken from your sleep. You spend your time doing all things, from the mundane to the outrageous.
To you, all of it feels real, no matter how out the ordinary or bizarre, we believe, we are sure that this dream world is the real world.
So what if this is that 75 yearlong dream?
How would we know? Both worlds feel real while we’re in them; each one is influenced by our thoughts and actions. What if right now, we are living that 75 yearlong dream and just don’t know it. Does it even matter whether this is a dream or not?
If the world feels real to you, is the important thing that it all ends when you wake up in another, or will the memory of what you experienced in that life be the one thing you truly hold dear?
Alan Watts says that ” If you awaken from this illusion, you can feel yourself not as a stranger in the world, not as something that has arrived here by fluke, but you can begin to feel your own existence as absolutely fundamental…I’m not trying to sell you on this idea in the sense of converting you to it, I want you to play with it. I’m just putting it forward as a possibility of life to think about.”
