So you're saying you palpably felt when you woke up like you had just lived for days? You had experienced every minute of those days?
I said nothing like that, and no one dreams with such detail.
I never said you said anything like that. My post was below Trekker's, I was responding to him.
My mistake.

That's what the film is playing on, quite factually. Any 1st year psych student has probably read numerous studies on same.

Well, I could tell you about all the numerous studies I've read published in the last couple years about dreams occurring in real time that refute the film's hypothesis, being a 3rd year psyche student myself, but since I said it was a silly nit pick to begin with and can suspend my disbelief for it, I'll just agree to disagree and let it go.
Those studies don't refute anything, they just suggest some dream narratives may parallel real time. Since it's all based on the subject's recollection, which is dubious at best on such fine points, then there's no way to conclude that for certain in any cases much less in all cases.
