False awakenings

What is it?

Most of us have probably seen Inception, a film that is inspired by Lucid Dreams. It’s very common to feel as if you are dreaming within a dream, and to wake-up from the nested dream into the surrounding dream as if everything is normal. Lucid dreams are heavily tied to false awakenings, and it has been seen that you are more likely to experience a Lucid dream in the same night that you have a false awakening.

Waking Life is a film written around the whole idea of Lucid dreams, where the main character constantly experiences false awakenings within a Lucid dream environment.
