I was in a dream when I became lucid. I realized nothing around me was “real” (to clear up philosophical perspective we’ll say this refers to the solidity and consistency of the waking world).
Upon realizing I was dreaming, and nothing was “real”, I could stick my hand through the wall, because of this, then I looked down at the floor, and realized it couldn’t support me, since it wasn’t “real”.
Upon realizing this I fell through the floor into darkness, and after a few seconds I woke up.
I have not yet been lucid again (this was only a night ago) to experience this, but I want to understand it.
My girlfriend’s dad told me to study the 4 noble truths of Buddhism, and that has helped me learn from the experience, but I want to know what’s at the core; what’s beyond the darkness.
This, however, got me thinking, the darkness was synthetically generated as well, so what’s beyond the darkness, and the superficial appearance of things in a dream?
If you eliminated all the “synthetically generated” phenomena in the dream, what would you experience?
