When we don’t use something, we experience it. It doesn’t need to be a method for something else. We increase the sharpness of our experience, but we experience it differently. When we experience waking life as a dream, we experience this change of edge, as though the knife of consciousness is being seen in a new light: we are no longer swinging wildly about, wounding ourselves and others in the process. Instead, we catch our own reflection in the blade, if only for a second. This gives us pause. The current actions lose their importance. The thoughts themselves are not there, when we look for them. It was a dream. Who am I now?
