Bob, there are degrees in the perception of Reality.There are no degrees of Reality.Your last night-sleep dream, its ethos, pathos, that entire drama, may have been the thousand veil dance of dusky houries.Erotically discarding one veil after another.It may have thousand meanings, ..............there might be thousand ways of perceiving it.But you, ...............you are that you are.
