After writing a lot in a row for On Mount Golgotha, this felt like a nice palate cleanser. I hope you enjoy - at least this isn't one of those SCPs that is so long that it makes you tired.
I have run through so many possible titles for this one, including "To sleep, perchance to dream", "On the Impossibility of Communication in cases of Fundamentally Different Understandings of Ontology", "The search for meaning is itself meaningless", "Dreamcatcher" - if anyone comes up with a suggestion, I am open to changing it on the Series III list.
As usual, much thanks is due. So many people read this through (in various forms) and gave helpful comments and feedback. Thank you to Thetataurus, sirpudding, Shaggydredlocks, Zyn, WrongJohnSilver, Varren Erelim, LurkD, A Random Day, BIDZ180, Aiden Eldritch and Decibelle.
This also had a number of key influences, including writings for this site by Kalinin, ophite, Djoric and Drewbear.
