My reality is in your dream –The mysterious “dream telepathy”

One day he visited Qujiang River with his brother Bai Juyi and a friend. They stayed at Ci’en Temple for a long time before they went to the friend’s house for a drink in the evening. ” Then he inscribed a poem on the wall.

There was no plan to break the sorrow of spring, so he drunkenly broke the flower branches as wine chips.
Suddenly I remembered that my old friend had gone to the sky, and I planned to arrive at Liangzhou today.

Ten days later, a strange thing happened, someone brought a letter from Yuan Zhen from Liangzhou to Bai Juyi, and at the end of the letter was a poem called “A Dream Poem”, which read

The poem reads: “I dreamt that my brother, Qujiang Tou, also entered the courtyard of Ci’en.
The official called someone to line up the horses, and I realized that I was in the ancient Liangzhou.

This poem was written on the day when Bai Juyi’s brothers swam in Qujiang River.

The story of “not knowing that I was a guest in a dream” has been passed down since ancient times, and there are two other similar stories in Bai Xingjian’s Three Dreams.

Incredible dream telepathy

It is an incredible phenomenon that “my reality will appear in your dream”. This phenomenon is known as dream telepathy (dream telegraphy) in modern times, and scientists have been studying it.

The most famous dream telepathy study was conducted by two American psychologists, Montague Ullman and Stanley Krippner. When one subject entered the room, they would see a photograph or image in an envelope – this time offering the famous painting “School of Dance” by Edgar Degas – and the other subject would sleep in another room.

Each group of subjects would get to know each other a little beforehand. In Kipner’s report, the sleeping subjects gave back their dreams, including “I was in a classroom with a few people, kind of like being in school” or “a little girl tried to find me dancing” and so on.

This interesting result confirms the phenomenon, but scientists are still unable to understand how the information is transmitted, scientists have tried to deduce a reasonable explanation.

Another theory believes that this kind of sensing is a human instinct, and that babies and their mothers are able to communicate with each other, only to disappear with age; another theory believes that human thinking is also a material existence, according to quantum entanglement (quantum According to the theory of quantum entanglement, particles can sense each other’s condition even if they are far apart.

Regardless of how the message is transmitted, for the person who sleeps, when he wakes up, he will realize, “Wow, that was all a dream! I had a dream.” But what about before he wakes up from the dream?

The interrogation between reality and illusion

In his dream, he marries a princess, becomes the governor of Nanke, has a child, and lives day by day for decades, forgetting that he is even living in the human world, but the ant emperor knows that he is the one who decides to send him back to the human world. But what was the dream and what was the reality for Chun Yu Ru before he “woke up from his dream”?

In the famous dream of Zhuang Zhou, Zhuang Zi asks, “I wonder if Zhou’s dream is that of a butterfly? Is the dream of the butterfly Zhou’s dream? What is “real”? What is “real”? Is it a choice between a butterfly and Zhuang Zhou?

In the plot of the movie “Full Start” a few years ago, the protagonists kept controlling themselves in the dream to enter a deeper dream, that is, after “waking up” everyone is still in a higher level of the dream, are in the dream… …

Buddhists believe that the world is unreal, and the original meaning of the word “Buddha” is “the one who realizes”, that is, “the one who realizes” tells us that the world is like a dream; Zhuangzi is a Taoist, and we also Zhuangzi is a Taoist, and we know that the goal of Taoist practice is to become a “real person”, so it seems obvious that both Buddhism and Taoism have their own understanding of “truth” and “reality”.
