For Those Who Say They Do Not Dream: REM and Dream Progress

A fact about dreaming that shows This Endless Present is a good outlet for everybody!  It is taken from The Mind at Night: The New Science of How and Why We Dream by Andrea Rock.  Show this to people who claim they do not dream!

"...Experimenters proved that even those who claim not to dream do in fact concoct dream scenarios throughout the night.  If awakened while REM is still in progress, subjects remember their dreams, but if they are awakened several minutes after REM has ended, the memory of the dream typically vanishes."
