That's the title of a book by Philip K. Dick, from which the movie Blade Runner was inspired. This is my ALL-TIME FAVORITE movie ever. Period.
Anyways, once we get artificial intelligence, will it lucid dream?
And "I've seen things you wouldn't believe".
Yet even those androids couldn't answer why there is something from nothing and existence was futile. (Sad isn't it, but so powerful.) If you get me started we will have to make a new topic for Blade Runner Fans!

Maybe we should... There is something in this movie that is deeply soul-stirring, though it's difficult to put a finger on exactly what...

It's because our brains are generating something from nothing. That's what it does best. Just like filling in the gaps of our blind spots, our brains can't tolerate nothingness.
What is reality but just waves in a void of mostly nothingness. We created our 3D reality from those waves of information, added emotion, memory, and aspirations all with our minds, and we do it when both awake and asleep. The way we perceive reality is due to our minds. (This is only the tip of an iceberg and still doesn't answer why there is something from nothing!)

I said I was going to sit back and let you guys mind wrestle with it, squirming and writhing, but I am the one mentally contorting!
IT'S SO HARD TO EXPLAIN WHY THERE IS SOMETHING RATHER THAN NOTHING!
It keeps going in circles, but I tried.
Nothing exists in its own "space", is independent from all matter, and is eternal.
I don't see why we would go from a waking state to a state of nothingness. Zoom in on the word we. The thing that is doing the dreaming, us, is a physical thing, its always apart of the relative space, matter etc. Why would it go to nothing?
As for why our dreams have context, I don't think all of them do. Some of our deep sleeps are just... well who knows its why its called deep sleep you aren't conscious of it. I still don't really get what you are asking.
So it may be that a better question, albeit a much more difficult one, is HOW there is something rather than nothing.
