More Thoughts on Parallel Realities

More thoughts on Parallel Realities and Dreaming: There’s a Zen story about a man who, after having a dream in which he was a butterfly, wondered if he was actually a butterfly dreaming he was a man. Why wouldn’t the Soul (or “ba” in ancient Egyptian terminology) be unlimited in its explorations when freed of the physical body? And if this is so, there would be no “either-or” question about which reality is real. When we accept that parallel realities exist and learn to explore them with lucid consciousness, we are enhanced, expanded, deepened, and heightened.
