What if, in these alternate planes, life as we know it is dramatically different, to the point of sheer awesomeness. When we dream, our brain might actually be picking up the brain patterns of our body in another plane, in real-time with the events in that plane.:detective:
Thank you for the thread and welcome to the forum. First let me say your are on target in you thinking IMO. But we must also realize we are venturing into a discourse that will be immensely difficult to explain which tells me not to venture long in that it is taboo territory. The television series "Sliders" is a depiction of that you are referring to. These planes do exist and I am only aware of that in that I have "physically" been there.
It is truly an uncanny experience in that those times I did venture, it seemed everyone knew me, but had no idea who they were in that they were all strangers to me. Even my family was different somehow. So I just mentally played along and enjoyed the attention. Ha. It was as if they were in a "way-station" so to speak. I will not venture as to why I say that, it just came out.
It was identical to this plane, but different, and so were the people in it. It was indeed non-threatening nor uncomfortable very friendly even, except from my immediate family in that they were afraid?, as at the time it only struck me as odd for a the time I thought is was the plane I had always existed in. Now how many times I have visited this plane is unknown to me. In retrospect what I can surmise is these planes are slowly converging in that whatever established that plane and for whatever reason those in that plane are going through some kind of "re-vitalizing or a re-vamping" that will enhance their existence in this one. IMO?
All I do know is I visited that plane for a reason of which I don't have the foggiest idea? Ha. Inexplicable, esoteric, you bet. Now it is my feeling that this was a very close plane to our own about to merge, on the same token there are those planes that are more distant and more alien and hostile. Those are only accessable due to a phsychotic break and that is the reason why I mention: "taboo". You don't want to go there as it is the origin of fear itself or hell itself. I've been there too, but with a guiding hand that allowed me not to be afraid. Nevertheless I made it back from that journey. Whew!!!!!! I will someday, maybe, elaborate a little more on that one, though I hope not.
Now what plane is it that we will merge with? That depends on which one we are the most compatible with; the one that is re-vitalizing or the one in which fear dominates? Hmmm? Good question. I vote for the former.
As it relates to our dreams, it is those other dimensions we are venturing into sub-consciously dependent on how afraid we are in this plane. That's where nightmares come from, IMO as all dreams. I don't know about others but when I am dreaming, I know I am dreaming though I don't know how I know that. I just do. Now as far as nightmares, I've had those too in a dreamstate, but to me they were nothing more than an adventure as I have been stabbed, blown up, fallen off clifts, drowned, shot, you name it and woke up bright eyed and bushy taled. Now in the good ones, I fly and those are great.
Now having said all that I could use a good cup of coffee, Ha. In all seriousness it is this plane I am worried about for it is the only one that matters to me and how we can eliiminate fear in this plane to keep that farthest plane from merging with this one. Every post I have ever written has been to offer ways to eliminate that fear that is so invasive in this world.
I could go on, but I will leave it at that for now. IMMHO.

Yes, I think it might very well be that we are continually enhancing the collective unconscious. In fact, that may all that we are all doing. :detective:
I can only conjecture that he kept many of his personal beliefs to himself, so as not to cause any more commotion than he already did within his profession.....................
Yeah, I kinda know what your are surmising for I do indeed feel the same way. My last post is just an smidigen of what I have yet divulged. Ha. :a-ok:
Easy does it.
