I was just traveling around...
you know, staring out the windows of buses and trains and cars, you know.
When I was at home, I was, like, flipping through the TV stations endlessly,
I mean, how many dreams do you have where you read in a dream?
Wait. Man, there was this book I just read on the bus -
You know, it was my dream, so I guess I wrote it or something.
But, uh, man, it was bizarre. It was like, uh...
the premise for this whole book...
was that every thought you have creates its own reality, you know?
It's like every choice or decision you make...
the thing you choose not to do...
fractions off and becomes its own reality, you know...
and just goes on from there forever.
I mean, it's like...
uh, you know, in the Wizard of Oz...
when Dorothy meets the Scarecrow and they do that little dance at that
and they think about going all those directions...
then they end up going in that one direction.
I mean, all those other directions, just because they thought about it...
became separate realities.
They just went on from there and lived the rest of their life.
I mean, entirely different movies, but we'll never see it...
because, you know, we're kind of trapped in this one reality restriction
type of thing.
Another example would be like back there at the bus station.
As I got off the bus, the thought crossed my mind...
you know, just for a second, about not taking a cab at all.
But, you know, like maybe walking, or bummin' a ride or something like that.
I'm kind of broke right now. I should've done that probably.
But, uh, just 'cause that thought crossed my mind...
there now exists at this very second...
a whole 'nother reality where I'm at the bus station...
and you're probably giving someone else a ride, you know?
I mean, and that reality thinks of itself as this -
it thinks of itself as the only reality, you know.
I mean, at this very second, I'm in that -
I'm back at the bus station just hangin' out, you know...
probably thumbin' through a paper.
You know, probably goin' up to a pay phone.
Say this beautiful woman just comes up to me, just starts talking to me, you
Uh, she ends up offering me a ride, you know.
We're hitting it off. Go play a little pinball.
And we go back to her apartment, I mean, she has this great apartment.
I move in with her, you know.
Say I have a dream some night...
