Re: What Dreams Say about Time

I have had a few experiences like this. I'd conclude that time in dreams does not run exactly linearly to waking reality. In your ambulance example, I'd guess that: In waking reality the alarm goes off, your brain receives this information and the dream scenario then begins, and plays out, then you ...
