      I’m not sure about that one. The brain has an incredible amount of control over the body, and you could imagine if something went drastically wrong with it during sleep, you could well die. How that relates to dreams I couldn’t tell you. I can’t remember most of mine, so even if I have died in my dreams I couldn’t tell you about it.

      I cannot see how we could know that, so I don’t think it is true.
