Sample text

We now discover (c4-7) that 4a. dreaming, whether one is awake or asleep, is holding that what is merely like something [else], is not like it, but rather is [sc. is identical with] the thing it is like The dreamer says to himself if 'a = b'; in fact, a^b, a merely resembles b —as when one supposes that one's dream-experience is [,sc. is identical with] an experience of falling off the cliff when it is merely LIKE an experience of falling off the cliff.
