Occasionally at night, a person will find themselves in an alternate existence while their body sleeps. Sometimes, these memories will remain after the fact, and the subject will clearly recall that time s/he spent within themselves. These occurrences may lead to a revelation of sorts in which the being may come across a deeper understanding of some matter. There are studies done on the matter, and countless guides to traversing this unique space, however when interpreted loosely, I believe that one can find a truth to themselves through these moments. This comprehension, or epiphany, if you will, is not something controllable or necessary; however it can affect a person as readily as any tangible experience. Of this I learned in a dream.
