something strange happened to me recently, although this is just an anecdotal story, so i appreciate that what i thought had happened may not have been the case. anyway, i've noticed that if my alarm clock is consistently set to say, 7 AM, i will wake up roughly around that time even if i've turned the alarm off. now is that generally accepted as true within scientific knowledge?? but listen to this: quite recently, i had my alarm set for 7 AM. i remember dreaming about playing a computer game which involved a timer. when the timer reaches 0, game over. but in the dream, when the timer DID reach zero- as far as i remember- my alarm sounded. now the way i see it there's two possible explanations for this: 1. it didnt actually happen, i.e. perhaps the alarm sounded some time after the time in my dream expired. 2. some other cue was present which made me unconsciously aware of the time 3. the internal body clocks we have can be very, very accurate anyone else experienced something like this?
