"I'm a human being, dammit! You can deny me all you want but you can't deny Ben Sisko. He exists! That space station -- those people -- that future -- they exist!(pointing to his head) In here. And in the minds of everyone of you who read it. You hear what I'm telling you? You can pulp the story but you can't destroy the idea. That future is real -- I made it real!"

"But I've been wondering... what if it wasn't a dream? What if this life we're leading... all of this... you and me - everything... what if all this is the illusion?" "That's a scary thought." "I know... but maybe, just maybe, Benny isn't the dream -- we are. Maybe we're nothing more than figments of his imagination. For all we know, at this very moment, somewhere, far beyond all those stars... Benny Russell is dreaming of us."

From the DS9 episode Far Beyond the Stars, in which Benjamin Sisko hallucinates about being a SciFi writer in the 1950s... or maybe, it wasn't a hallucination after all. Who knows?
