Deception

I had a rather strange dream.

The exact nature of the dream is not necessary here, but during the course of the dream, I pinched myself twice to see whether I was indeed dreaming. And guess what? Both the times, I felt acute pain and convinced myself in my dream that I was not dreaming.

Now as I am typing this, I realise that I have no way of knowing whether this is just another dream or reality (is there even such a thing?). The only weapon I thought I had until yesterday (i.e. the art of pinching myself, as most people usually do) is no longer with me.

But does it at all matter? I don’t know. But there are certain fundamental questions that we have no answers for. And trying to answer these questions only leads to more questions.
