What if our dreams are tentative realities, and that choosing not to wake up is how we decide to keep them.

The discovery of quantum mechanics and the infinite multverse theory have become fodder for dream theorists. Perhaps dreams are samples of those infinite permutations of alternative universes, and when we wake up, that's really just the so-called "observation" that forces a choice of a world that is logically consistent, i.e. now, this, Earth, you in your job and objects that obey gravity.
