ok fred that's a good quote by dogen, one gets these glimpses to see that overall he had a good idea of what it was about : o )
don't get screwed up on lucid dreaming, it is to be avoided and can rewire the brain increasing insomnia : o)
“Awake/awakening and dreaming are from the beginning one suchness, the genuine reality. The buddha dharma, even if it were an analogy, is the genuine reality. As it is not an analogy, made king in the dream is the reality of the buddha dharma.”

infinity is complete !
andrew being made 7th patriarch in a vision is reality!
