      Oh, I've always had trouble falling asleep. But it's been way better since you showed me this -- so if anything, I haven't thanked you enough yet!

      Ooh, good question, and thanks for the like! Short answer is: At first, yes, Kyle is a cartoon when he is arguing. However, the inner-brain infiltration sequence version of "Kyle" is proportionally human. My theory is that at this point, he is no longer Kyle from South Park, but just another dream character.

      And now, rambling long answer -- feel free to feel your eyes glaze over while skipping this part: I recorded my entry in a manner that will be understandable to readers/me at later dates. But the specifics of that particular sequence, from what I can gather, functioned more like a series of reflective reasoning rather than visual recognition. So, my dream worked more like this (and this is conjecture that benefits from hindsight organization):

      -Head in a fridge! I sense I'm siding against my moral code for covering for my murderer-friend...

      -...Therefore, I need moral guidance! At which my brain decided Kyle will be a good metaphor to argue for the side of good, but he needs someone to argue against...

      -Unseen: ...Therefore, Eric Cartman, Kyle's most recognizable source of antagonism, is naturally arguing on the side of evil -- thus, acknowledgment Cartman was there without really seeing him.

      -At this point, I get a zooming shot into the pimples, kind of like the reverse of the ending of Men in Black when they keep pulling away until it reveals our universe were just marbles to aliens. So, for a brief flash at the beginning, I "know" I'm looking at Kyle's face. It's not vividly clear, but it's definitely a South Park cut-out.

      My theory is that this sense of ambiguity was my sub-conscious trying to preserve the dream's integrity -- it would be, after all, very jarring to have cartoon characters against a live-action backdrop. But then, I have a limited understanding of how dreams work, and I'm fascinated by how amazingly fast our sub-conscious is able to fill in gaps of information, so I welcome anyone else who has a better understanding of the how's and why's.

      Hey, I had a question for you.

      When you dreamed of Carman and Kyle - Were they live depicitions of the characters, or were they cartoons in your dream?
