The other night I was dreaming and stayed asleep the entire night, not once waking up. I was sleeping outside, on a camping trip actually, and during the night, unbeknownst to me, a skunk was outside, and after I recorded my dreams, I realized that I had seen and smelt a skunk in my own dreams. Another night, I fell asleep in a movie theatre, watching a movie I had never seen. However, I did not realized I had fallen asleep. I fell asleep about 20 mins into the movie, and yet, I was able to recall precise events, sounds, and, what didn't seem strange to me at the time, smells, and other senses (touch, temperature etc.). The description of the movie that I gave matched very well with others who had stayed awake the whole movie. Of course, some details were off, some names, places and such. At the time I didn't really think it anything peculiar, but later I realized that I must have fallen asleep and, my eyes and ears still hearing the movie, caused me to dream about it, and my mind filled in the other sensations I was experiencing in the dream. And this is just one of many occurrences. I could rattle on for hours but I think that is sufficient evidence to lay a claim.
If what I believed happened really did happen, a whole world of possibilities could be opened. Incredibly lifelike virtual reality, studying and learning in your sleep for a test, even things like going "into" your favourite stories. And to top it all off, not that this really proves my point anymore, Before all this, before I had even an inkling of lucid dreaming, virtual reality and all that stuff, I had a dream of the latter of the two dreams above. The same night of that dream, it was the exact same scenario, only this time, I had a device that forced me into this state of virtual reality.
Anyway, I am sorry if it sounds like I am rambling; I am just very excited about this whole prospect. Feel free to post any thoughts, comments or questions you may have

Anyway, I suggest not to fall asleep while watching war movies.
Another time, I must of fallen asleep while watching a movie but didnt know (one of those times I was nodding on and off). Later on when discussing it with another, I found out we both had different story lines for it so I rewatched it, only then to find out it was completely different to how I'd seen it a few days earlier (well some parts were the same but there was all these additional parts I'd seen between the real parts of the movie)
