At that stage in your sleep your level of awareness is approaching waking consciousness, but you are still in a sleep/dream phase, so your mind is misperceiving the external stimuli of the real world, i.e. the radio sounds, and incorporating them into a dream. I think a similar thing happens when you dream of flowing water and you wake to find you have urinated in the bed. The brain confuses itself. This supports the idea that instead of the "self" existing as an individual looking through their eyes as if they were windows, the brain actually produces a simulation of the real world. So in altered states of consciousness, the brain can't distinguish between dream scenarios and the perception of real stimuli, because it has fabricated both of them.
It IS a really quirky experience.......especially when I realise that it's happening.......In the dream world , the recognition of it only seems to last a short while....this must be the stage just before waking up properly....but it is very interesting to know that the characters are mimicking the actual radio..I wonder if the mind is open to increased learning at this stage.....because as far as I can fathom...the mouths of the characters are instantaneously wording the very same words I am hearing and this in itself is extraordinary. Though, there must be a delay of sorts but in that semi-dream state it's not obvious.So, I wonder if the mind is receptive to suggestion at this time.
