Because of me, you are:

here and there

moving and still

seeing and blind

hearing and deaf

together and apart

knowing and unaware.

I am found by those who pretend they have already found me.

I am universal with infinite universes.

Without me, you die.

What am I?

Well, the hint gave it away.

Sleep

here and there:

you are still alive in the real world while sleeping, but you are also in a dream

moving and still:

you are still in real life but may be moving in a dream

seeing and blind:

you may see things in a dream but you can't see anything in real life

hearing and deaf:

you may imagine hearing things in a dream but you can't in real life

together and apart:

not sure

knowing and unaware:

you know things still, and it's a common belief that you can learn or work on things while you sleep, even though you are unaware of your surroundings

I am found by those who pretend they have already found me.

if you pretend to be asleep for long enough, you may eventually actually fall asleep due to resting for an elongated period of time

I am universal with infinite universes.

There are a potentially infinite number of dreams possible.

Without me, you die.

Without sleep, you die.

Hint:

omega is the last letter of the greek alphabet. the last letter of the english alphabet is z. zzzzzzz is a common onomatopoeic effect to show someone sleeping or snoring.
