Dream seems real yet lucid. It’s realness lies in the fact that the subject of our dream, whose presence can easily provoke a sense of familiarity and relatability that we all are accustomed to. Its lucidity creates a mirror effect, which is responsible for engendering our sadness, because what we “see” is so tangible yet it is impossible for us to experience it in its entirety with all of our senses.

We are all encouraged to dream, ever since we were little babies. Oftentimes, we are taught the importance of dreaming, but are not all given the necessary tools and knowledge to shield ourselves effectively from suffering and hurt in the case of our field of gold becomes a field of ruin. As people, who are programmed to chase a dream, we can only depend on ourselves to go through trial and tribulation in the hopes of self-inventing a mechanism of self-protection in times of the inevitable setback.

Many dream chasers self-describe as alone ranger, because their outlandish conviction and belief in their dream can never be fully understood by others.
