I disagree, as long as the person trusts the dream to be correct, and it indeed is, it is knowledge.


Belief in something does not necessitate it is knowledge, it is just required for knowledge. The belief has to be true for it to be considered knowledge. So, I suppose someone could dream of a piece of knowledge, but I would hazard to say that the person already knew of that piece of knowledge prior to dreaming.

I did say that, unless I have forgotten the workings of language =)

"as long as the person trusts the dream to be correct, and it indeed is, it is knowledge."

As for knowing it prior to dreaming, I agree thats likely, but we are being philosophic here, not pratic =)

People, animals, plants, rocks, terrain features, the weather, the sun, the gods, the interdimensional beings in my mind (hate those), the cosmic forces that rule the universe, several parts of my body, etc.

I dreamed I had an affair with Nicole Kidman. I wish I knew I did.
