ZZ's Dream

ZZ's Dream (2008)

Once upon a time, I, Zhuang Zhou,
dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither.
I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was Zhou.
Soon I awoke, and there I was, veritably myself again.
Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly,
or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.
