In the traditions of Western thought there exists a distinction between two types of ‘cream dream’: one in the abstract, the other in actuality. How they differ I shall now take some time to explain. A ‘cream dream’ in the abstract exists purely in the thought. It is ‘non-physical’ phenomena, and may be categorised as a Cartesian ‘mental event’. It may serve as an antecedent or precursor to some physical event, but is never the result of a physical event.
Conversely, a ‘cream dream’ in the actuality is purely ‘physical’ phenomena. It is the culmination, and direct result of, of a bio-mental causal chain that begins with a ‘cream dream’ in the abstract and ends with a nice big jizz bomb.(3)
It is because of its function as the source of a ‘cream dream’ in the actuality, as well as its ability to function without a ‘cream dream’ in the actuality, that we may say with confidence that a ‘cream dream’ in the abstract is a priori of more significance.
(1) I anticipate that my use of the term ‘philosopher’ in this article will cause some controversy. I do not wish to supply arguments to support or justify my usage, since the debate as to what it entails or what it is to be a philosopher is itself controversial.
(2) I would hope the more pedantic among us would ignore the use of the word ‘event’ in classifying a ‘cream dream’. I wish to emphasise (without argument) that I am not begging the question.
(3) Although I should point out that the target is discretionary.
Being a rock star would be such a cream dream
