      Last night I had a rather weird dream, wierder than usual. It was non-lucid, and the basic plot was something like this:

      There was a giant paddle boat, with one large paddle at the front which was made out of k'nex. It was supposed to be eaten by a shark, but due to a 6-year old prophecising it, it did not happen. Because of this, the world was flooded. A short part with several people in an apartment with water up to their chests followed this.

      The weird thing was that as soon as the dream started, I remembered the whole thing (like deja vu) but I remembered it as though I had read it in a book called Mortal Engines. During and shortly after the dream I was convinced that I had read this story about the boat somewhere before, but upon careful thought I realised that it was just too preposterous to have read.
      Therefore, I can only conclude 3 possibilities:
      A. The dream created a memory of me having read the book
      B. I had really read the story somewhere
      C. At the time I was reading Mortal Engines (several years ago) I had this dream, and because I had it again tonight, I remembered it as though I had read it in a book.
      Personally, I think it's C, but I'd like some other opinions on this....

      Anyone experienced anything like this before, or have an alternate theory?
      We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true. - Woodrow Wilson

      I vote "A" ... or a modification of it, at any rate. Recall simply is another way of saying a dream is remembered, thus indicating that you have created a memory of it (I know this is kind of an obvious statement, but the rewording of it brings attention to everyone - myself included - to why we use these names on DV.)

      I actually get this phenomenon all the time. The more I get used to recalling, the more I find myself confused! (haha)

      Another thing I get, is I'll have a dream, and in it, I'll have a dream memory. I'll "remember" something that has happened with a person before (not actually happened, and not even a dream I've had before.)

      I think you may be right. After some time I can still remember the dream, and what I remembered during it, but the actual memory that I thought I remembered at the time has faded.

      hahaha, you just have to love the confusing jargon that comes with discussing dreams and "reality."

      At any rate, I understand perfectly what you are saying. It happens to me all the time.

      I could have put it worse:

      Not that remembering is even a word.

      Fair enough, sounded funny to me at the time, maybe it was the 8 prior remembers that threw me off
