Brain replay's events in reverse 

This is very similar to the idea I previously blogged about regarding some dreams are created at the instant of waking. The thing that wakes us becomes part of the dream. The dream is then created in reverse so that the thing that wakes us becomes the end of the dream. The dream is created to support the conclusion of the dream being the thing that woke us. The only way this could happen is that the dream is instantaneously created at the momnent of waking, only in rverse, but our perception is that it happened in real-time and in forward.
