Worlds within worlds

I discussed the ideas and the person I was talking to noticed that the plot aims at a dreams within dreams idea. The dream in which the character is in a rocket that blows up wakes up to a version where there’s a problem but it’s resolved wakes, at the end, to a reality where the astronaut dream fails.

Although not entirely original I must admit I find it quite an interesting idea.

I was thinking of having this idea Inception-style where it is unclear what is reality. Or are they all real at the same time? Alternate realities, parallel worlds.

Was the blowing up dream invented by an anxious astronaut or did it really happen to another version of him? Did it exist because of him dreaming it?

And the drunk, are they but another version of reality?
