Recently had a dream where I was in a situation I have never been before in "real life" - (no real experience prior to the dream of this situation).
After waking, all the feelings, thoughts, memories of what I did in the dream were still there, and could now do this activity through the skills and experience I learned in the dream.
Thus, what is the difference of experience gained from a dream versus a "real experience"?
Please note I am not asking: How does one know one is not dreaming? or how one knows one is or is not dreaming? This is irrelevant.
Put in everyday terms: Someone experienced a certain action of work in a dream and listed the experience on a resume - how can I deny it or say it is false - only by the definition of it being documented or effecting others?
