"And just as a captive who in sleep enjoys an imaginary liberty, when [she] begins to suspect that his liberty is but a dream, fears to awaken, and conspires with these agreeable illusions that the deception may be prolonged . . . ." (Descartes, René, 1596-1650. Discourse On Method; and, Meditations on First Philosophy, First Meditation.)
