BTW, I do understand your morbid fear. You are not going crazy.

There are at 3 ways to counteract this.

1. Understand the corollary of my post above, namely "I" cannot
exist seperate from its "observed world".

2. Ask yourself where "you" were during the major part of the night when not dreaming. Answer..."you" were not there..."you" were the equivalent of "dead" ! "Death" (the absence of consciousness) happens to you every night and doesn't bother you !

3. Read "The Death of Forever" by Darryl Reanney. It expands on these ideas and many others.
