Waking up happens in this dream exactly as fast as the dreamer in the dram shifts from the fiction it is a 'real person' having 'a real life' in a 'real reality,' to the possibility that everything is content in a huge, all inclusive, dream. If right now is nothing more substantial than the dream mind is dreaming, then the only 'thing' there is to study is how mind dreams this dream called “reality.” Psychology, through no fault of its own, is the epitome of duality, which is to be expected. Reality, they insist, is a people based phenomenon, featuring the origin of suffering in early life, the impact of trauma on our sense of well being, and what it takes to assist someone to 'get better.'
If right now is only a mind generated dream, and this turns out to be true, then Psychology is featured in the dream as one more defense of “The Master lie (TML),
that “reality” is real, and not a dream in progress, and that all 'the people' are the people they insist they are in this dream. If you examine this dream in depth, what part of it tries to reconnect you with the possibility that none of it is what dreamers, posing as people, insist it is, because they are in it defending what they insist it is, which is to be expected. “The Main Event” in this dream features “The Anti-truth Game” (TAG), or the sum of all the ways the dreamers in this dream defend “The Master Lie” (TML), that everything is exactly what it appears to be and the idea something called “mind” is dreaming this dream is treated as preposterous. Is this concept preposterous because it is preposterous, or does the dream feature us dismissing it as “preposterous” because if it is true, then nothing we refer to as “the truth” is the truth.
