the way you explained your whole method of reality checks seemed a little eerie. Do you genuinely think you're in reality sometimes but end up actually being in a dream?
Cobb is spot on when he talks about how we don't question how strange things are in a dream. You see a six-legged monster chasing you, what do you do? In a dream, you run away... rarely do you stop and think "this can't be real." You simply accept that it is. When you wake up, you realize how silly it was, but by then it is too late.
Your brain continually tries to convince you that your dream is real, and it's a struggle to work against that. One funny aspect of this I and others have experienced is that even when you have a fully lucid dream, it is very difficult to convince any people you are dreaming about that it is a dream. If you mention it to them, they will usually laugh it off or ignore you. I find this fascinating because those people are your subconscious, so you're essentially arguing against yourself.
