Your American Indian culture understood (and to some degree, still understands), that their nonphysical dream reality is every bit as real as the physical reality; and they live in both. And this is the product of the same type of integration that many extraterrestrial societies allow themselves to partake in as well. That is why the American Indian culture was more open and more consciously in contact with many extraterrestrial civilizations during the same time that your Western civilization was unaware that other planets existed at all. For the American Indian was able to step through the dimensional barrier and simply (with that sense of integration of self) come into contact with other consciousnesses which inhabit those different levels. It was, for them, quite a matter of course, quite a normal, natural, day-to-day idea.
