Cryonic consciousness: mental awareness during cryo-sleep which results in the manifestation of thought realities, confusing the individual upon waking, sometimes strongly enough to make them believe their mental experiences actually happened. Some try to compare this to dreams, but the effects and details are constructed in a semblance of consciousness, within control of the individual.
Man sits in cryo for years, imagining the possibility of a life with a woman he knows. By waking time, he may have fabricated years’ worth of scenarios which he feels he “lived through” when none of it truly happened outside his imagination.
There is a tie-in syndrome in NET users who lose the ability to distinguish between reality and imagination, building alternate lives on the net and believing events correspond with reality.
