"And if he left off dreaming about you, where do you suppose you'd be? ... You'd be nowhere. Why, you're only a sort of thing in his dream! If that there King was to wake you'd go out -- bang! -- just like a candle!"

"Hush! You'll be waking him, I'm afraid, if you make so much noise."

"Well it's no use your talking about waking him when you're only one of the things in his dream. You know very well you're not real."

Descartes' second dream:
"Having lain awake for awhile, Descartes fell asleep again and almost immediately had a second dream in which he heard a sharp explosive noise that sounded like thunder. This caused him to reawaken, and he saw sparks from the stove fire flying about the room. He remembered having had this experience before, while awake, and he was therefore able to make sense of it and to return calmly to sleep."
