Dreaming Near The Speed of Light

I have become convinced that I dream relativisticly, specificly at 99.5% of the speed of light or 298,500 km/s. Using the Lorentz formula for time dilation where the time (T) of the observer of my phenomenon (my dream) equals my dream time (T1) divided by the square root of 1-(v/c)^2, where v/c is the percentage of the speed of light, in this case .995, I find that last night only .5 hour had elapsed on the clock in my dream yet when I awoke, fully 5 hours had passed.

Tonight I will test the Lorentz formula for length contraction as I plan to dream about Ernest Borgnine. (I have no idea what I mean by that).
