The following question (which I did not ask) has been closed: https://cogsci.stackexchange.com/questions/3266/why-we-cant-read-in-dreams
I sometimes lucid dream, and when I do, I notice that I have great difficulty reading. In fact, this is one way I check if I am indeed dreaming: when I try to read or write, the words make sense at first and yet start to change to nonsense.
It seems that I am not the only one this has happened to. See, for example, season 1, episode 30 of Batman: The Animated Series where "Bruce starts to wonder what has happened, especially after seeing the characteristics of a dream (such as book and newspaper prints not making sense) inside this new life."
I personally would like to know any key terms that describe this phenomenon, as it is something that has been depicted in popular media and so most likely has some basis in fact. (Actually, I have personally experienced it, so I know it is true, at least for me.) If we ignore the relationship the original poster makes with computers, I think this question is a good one.
I am curious why the question was closed.
