Alan vs. Giraffe

"Let's suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream you wanted to dream, and that you could for example have the power within one night to dream 75 years of time or any length of time you wanted to have, and you would naturaly as you began on this adventure of dreams you would fulfil all your wishes. You would have every kind of pleasure you could conceive and after serveral nights of 75 years of total pleasure each you would say 'wow that was pretty great'. Now let's have a dream which isn't under control where something is going to happen to me that I don't know what it's going to be. And you would do that and come out of that and say 'wow that was a close shave wasn't it' and then you would get more and more adventureous and you would make further and further gambles as to what your dream, and finally you would dream where you are now. You would dream the dream of living the life that you are actually living today."
