Image result for Episodic or Sequence DreamsEpisodic or Sequence Dreams 

Your dream is like a movie, involving a story that goes on and on in sequential order. Episodic or “installment” dreams are a rare type that always comes in series. Each dream returns you to the same dream world, later in time, like chapters of a novel or episodes of a TV or radio show. Episodic dreams aren’t merely recurrent; events don’t repeat! Time and causality can operate in the dream world as consistently as they do in the waking world (though time between episodes may pass faster or slower than waking time.)

Episodic dreamers can legitimately challenge the waking world’s claim to be real–at least realer than dreams. If you alternate between two sets of consistent experiences, why assume one is real and one an illusion? The waking world is, after all, intermittent too. Is it punctuated by dreams, or is the dreamworld punctuated by so-called waking life?
