I get that too sometimes. I get EXTREMELY vivid dreams sometimes that start from my own bed and I get up and walk around. It feels so real. The other day I could swear I was remote viewing and having an out of body experience when I was in the dream. After waking up, I realized it was not the case, and I had an amnesia of my self identity at the time. Everything seemed familiar at the time even though it wasn't. Our mental model of reality is not accurate and I am starting to think that anyone who swears that an OBE is real and stable, just isn't looking carefully enough. Things can change, and if it's changing as fast as our minds think, we will never notice. We have two blind spots when awake but never notice.
EDIT: You said you can't get reality checks to fail, but I read it intuitively as 'can't get realty checks to work and they keep failing'. That is what you meant, right? It's funny how even language is not exact and we just get the basic idea of everything. I also want to bring up language in dreams and how it too is ever changing yet still understand.
