I woke from a dream where people were shouting about metaphorical shovels.

This seems rather literary for a hippocampus driven narrative.

What could this mean if it means anything at all.

I used to frequent a hippocampus. I took my degree in pachydermology at The Nile University.

It was OK, apart from the crocodiles in the lecture theatres.

Metaphorical shovels are probably what one would use to dig poetry.

Yes highly useful to dig poetry, shovel metaphorical shit, lean on and move mountains metaphorically.

I imagine they do not have to be too large to do a good job, it can probably fit in a shirt pocket, eye glass case, or be part of a metaphorical Swiss Army knife.

I'm afraid you've gone Cocteau on us with that giant eyebrow image.

I am walking slowly backwards as I speak with a pistol in one hand, raised lion tamer chair in the other and a whip in the third, trusting providence to guide my actions.

Why do we never dream we are asleep?

We may inhabit another world when sleeping where this world is but a dream.

When we dream, it seems real, within the parameters of the dream.

After the dream ends, it vanishes, never to return.

Those things that can be seen in the dream, the dream phenomena, are not lastingly real.

The only thing in the dream that has lasting reality is the dreaming mind itself. The dreaming mind itself cannot be seen in the dream.

Hence, dream-wise, that which is experienced is not ultimately real.

That which is ultimately real, and which generates the dream-experiences, cannot itself be experienced. You cannot experience it because you are it.

Perhaps "waking life" is like this in some way.
