Descartes, Sense-Perception, The Matrix, A.I., and The Nature Of Reality

The other night I awoke from a dream and heard certain definitive sounds. Keep in mind, I’m entirely copaceptic. Or, at least as much so as anyone else I know. Keep in mind, too, I’m living in Alabama, temporarily, in a complex so quiet that you can go days without hearing a sound.

I live alone. So there is no other possible sound of the source except a neighbor, I presume. Only the sound was coming from inside my apartment, from the kitchen or main room.
