Verse 2.18.58

अवस्तु पूर्वापरयोर्वर्तमाने विचारितम् ।
यथा जाग्रत्तथा स्वप्नः सिद्धमाबालमागतम् ॥ ५८ ॥

avastu pūrvāparayorvartamāne vicāritam |
yathā jāgrattathā svapnaḥ siddhamābālamāgatam || 58 ||

A prior and posterior non-entity is considered as existent at the present moment (as is the visible world which was not, nor will be afterwards). So the waking and dreaming states are known to be alike from our boyhood.
