I wonder if there is a word to describe a dream in which my conscience bridges reality and I remember real events in my dream world. I recently had a dream like this. It was not a lucid dream, because I didn't realize I was dreaming until I woke up afterwards. In the dream I remembered events from a previous dream a week ago but also remembered real events from a day or two before and was somewhat confused by the inconsistency of the facts encountered. So my question is: is there a name for such a dream? Either a single word or a short phrase?
