I have actually done a little research into it...since I used to have lucid dreams all the time...but not for years until that dream (well there was one other a few years ago)...
look at lucid dreams.
Well it shouldn't just be a claim...I could do this when I used to have lucid dreams all the time...and I got better with practice...I thought a lot of people could do this...you essentially need to become aware that you're dreaming without waking your self up...
Some people even claim to be able to control lucid dreams.
According to the relational interpretation of quantum mechanics, first proposed by Carlo Rovelli, observations such as those in the double-slit experiment result specifically from the interaction between the observer and the object being observed, not any absolute property possessed by the object. In the case of an electron, if it is initially observed at a particular slit, then the observer/particle interaction includes information about the electron's position. This partially constrains the particle's eventual location at the screen. If it is observed not at a particular slit but rather at the screen, then there is no "which slit" information as part of the interaction, so the electron's observed position on the screen is determined strictly by its probability function. This makes the resulting pattern on the screen no different than if each individual electron had passed through both slits. It has also been suggested that space and distance themselves are relational, and that an electron can appear to be in "two places at once" — e.g., at both slits — because its spatial relations to particular points on the screen remain identical from both slit locations.
Yes, I find this aspect of dreams very fascinating...why does our brain experience time differently whilst sleeping? Your brain and your thoughts still seem to operate at the same speed. Imagine if you could utilize this effect in some way...for instance...you could get twice as many math problems done in a dream, compared to a person doing them awake...
I'm very fascinated by dreams that last a very long time.

Maybe that was your future basically collapsing. Parallel universes rise and fall every second of the day because decisions are being made.

Scientists are slowly finding that we travel in our dreams into parallel universes or oceans of multiverses where different things are happening with us – what and who we know and our environments.
In dreams we migrate to the multiverse and go on an incredible journey.
As the world turns, billions of people and perhaps also animals make these interdimensional journeys. These journeys produce traces, be they electrical or of some substance we cannot physically measure. All combined, the traces our journeys make as we pass through billions of parallel universes create a form, a collective shape, giving the multiverse existence.
The similarities in brainwave patterns between waking life and sleep imply that on certain levels the brain may be functioning in similar ways, the most notable similarity being that we are conscious in both states.
In both states we are receiving sensory input, though in the case of dreams, the origin of this input and the organs involved in its reception remain cloaked. We are compelled to dream so that we can be part of this other much greater world which spans and in some way bonds all parallel universes.
Researchers have shown that in early childhood – even in the womb – infants have a very high proportion of REM sleep.
Perhaps our consciousness originates from this other existence. That may explain why consciousness is the most elusive and ethereal of forms. An understanding of the chemical and electrical processes occurring in the brain does not add up to an understanding of the nature of consciousness.
Dream research will produce more data to hypothesize about, but it will never give us an insight into the astounding multiverse of which our dreams form a part.

I might do that...that quote you provided was talking about ideas I find extremely intriguing...thanks for the input.

It's possible I may have...in fact, I seem to remember I have done that before...but I can't remember any of the details...that'd have to be one of the weirdest things...but I guess that's pretty much what I was doing in this set of dreams...because I'd force myself to wake up but I wouldn't really wake up...I'd only wake up from the dream I was currently having...and I did that like 4 or 4 times...it was a dream inside of a dream inside of a dream inside of a dream...
Have you ever woken IN your dream and recalled what you were dreaming
while asleep in your dream??
