"Lucid" dreams are an example of the continuity of waking life partially materializing in dreams, or at least within the dreamer's identity.
"Paranoid Schizophrenia" is an example of the continuity of dreams partially materializing in waking life, or at least within the awake's identity.
The effect of the emergent notion of rationality is to create a specific difficulty in distinguishing between the awake's "Lucid wakefulness" and fully awake imagination, which may be "visionary", but entirely within the normal continuity of wakefulness. In a sense, emergent rationality attempts to lower what passes for waking continuity to the lowest common denominator, which is reified through neoism to produce a distillation, hierarchialized by class. The "discontinuity" of modern art can be seen as a comparatively high-level continuity within the rarefied mental set of the higher economic classes.
It is possible to surpass the low level (or, number) of socially admissible continuities without "lucid wakefulness" ("Paranoid schizophrenia"), entering into a vast and invisible intermediary area which exists around and within every social institution. In light of this realm, social institutions are like thin shells & deposits in an architectural structure. paradoxically, the economic/political/technologies which affect emergent rationality are the direct result of the functioning of this inadmissible intermediary consciousness, which manifest on a minor level as technical invention. The evolution of technology is like a mad race of deviant minds away from masses of swarming robopaths while in turn becoming those masses in a kind of infinite regress, paralleling technical "progress". What is interesting is how this process seems to have transcended itself, or become frozen, so that there is no longer any delay between the inadmissible conception and totalitarian implementation of technical advances. This delay was the space in which the idea of human potential and humanitarianism attempted to hibernate.
