Of course maybe in some other branch of the multiverse your dream is 
continuing. 
That's what makes everything-theories difficult to test.

But you raise an interesting point. Everything-theories that suppose 
consciousness is constituted by the closest continuations need to solve the 
"white rabbit" problem.  But that solution, whatever it is, would equally apply 
in dreams.  So why don't dreams have the same physics as waking life?
