Apparently an incidental Indian somewhere said this sometime to someone, who scurpulously noted it down so that it became common ethnographic knowledge that Native Indians Believe That What Happens to You in Your Dreams is No Less Real Than What Happens to You in Waking. Which, I always thought, makes sense. It still happens to You, and just because there is no-one else around to hear the tree fall it doesn't make the crash any quieter. So when I woke up after a series of stressful dreams in which I quarrelled with my family I was no less upset.
