Between living and dreaming there is a third thing. Guess it.
Ummmmm....the land of Zen? Are you saying there is an actual third thing?
Life has 2 basic prerogatives; eat and sleep. We make living worthwhile by (gaining knowledge).
Death, because when we live we are awake experiencing and learning, when we are dreaming we could be sleeping or in a state of outer worldliness (daydreaming and such) . Therefore in death, we are not living or not dreaming, who is to say what we experience in death either. a touchy subject.
Is it premonition or intuition? Sometimes, we think of people or places in REM sleep, and receive word from them or news about them in the following days.

Intriguing question. It grabbed me. I had to come and read the answers. The only thing that came to mind for me was sleeping, but then that's part of living too. Hope you will give us the answer eventually if you know it.
The third thing is in the land of "NOD" where you can live, dream and sleep as long as you want?
