Why would they though? I can have a dream in which I observe myself participating in a space-time world, but it is not consistent with physics. Things appear and disappear without formally appearing or disappearing. You can crawl under a bed and find the gardens at Versailles. The bed may or may not be gone at this point but it is clear from the sense of the dream that it doesn't matter. Nothing is reliable or testable in dreams. What makes the arithmetic computations of my dream emerge as such a multivalent fugue of inconsistencies, but makes all real world physics emerge in precisely the opposite way - as a reliable and unified context? Why do all physical events have to formally occur but dream events has no comparable formality?
