Oneiric Personalism and Its Two Principles

Picture taken from this site.

I consider my life to be just a dream – nevertheless more consistent, and more lasting than my other dreams.

My philosophical interpretation of this very old metaphor is called oneiric personalism because I dream I`m a person.


A person:

1. can experience that they are elements of the world, and they can act on that basis, engaging intellect, will and emotions;

2. (and) can experience that the world is related to them – the world is “theirs” -, and they can act on that basis, engaging intellect, will and emotions;

3. (and) can have a problem with defining the very word: person – when they strive to give such a definition.


Two ontological principles of oneiric personalism:

The principle of illusion: as Dreamer I am more real than the person I dream I am.

The principle of interaction: all persons who appear in my dream are just as real as the person I dream I am.

  1. Marcin, I’ve always felt that the most important thing is to work your best toward having yourself and the people around you be as happy as they can be in a dream or in a dream about a dream or in a space-time-continual-reality-matrix!
