Chuang Tzu and the Butterfly
Chuang Tzu once dreamt that he was a butterfly
fluttering here and there. In the dream he had
no awareness of his individuality as a person.
He was only a butterfly. Suddenly, he awoke and
found himself laying there, a person once again.
But then he thought to himself,"Was I before a
man who dreamt about being a butterfly, or am I
now a butterfly who dreams about being a man?"
Chuang Tzu (Nan-hua ching)
