comment What is the scientific term for unexpected, spontaneous dream recall?
I have a hypothesis that the recall is caused by triggering of neural networks that were active during the dream. It seems the network stays active for a short period of time and thus it is possible to recall related dreams for a short period of time after the exposure. I've also confirmed that I'm not the only one recalling childhood sayings in response to real life events.

Found 2 related terms - male hyperagency, where all actions are attributed/blamed on male. Another one is female hypoagency, where females are unable to take accountability for their actions.

Found this blog post that goes into a bit more detail. The term they use is "blame shifting", and mentions that it's common with the dark triad women illimitablemen.com/2014/12/14/the-shit-test-encyclopedia

comment Does the brain have a 'debugging mode'?
The closest thing I to a brain debugger that I found is the quality of one's dreams. Not content, but the overall meta quality. For example dreams that feature bright daylight, coherent train of thoughts, use of logic and memory, including memory of waking world events are dramatically different from groggy recall of dim fragments of nonsense. One can gain insight into the function of one's brain by observing the quality of one's dreams like the ones described above. Once a pattern of dreaming changes, you know that something has changed in the brain.

comment Do we have an “internal timer” when taking naps?
I'm not sure if you are asking about napping on the bus during a ride or while waiting for the bus. I doubt you would get up after 50 minutes - this is when the body shifts into deeper sleep stages and causes sleep inertia, which is not really conductive to being aware of your bus stop.

comment What is the scientific term for unexpected, spontaneous dream recall?
Since last time I saw this question, I've discovered that my brain/mind occasionally recalls a childhood rhyme or saying in my native language related to what I'm perceiving in the real world. For example, seeing a muscular avatar in a videogame, I can recall a childhood rhyme about a muscular man. It took me some time to notice this, as these rhymes have been forgotten for over 20 years, and I don't try to recall them, they just arise. Similar things happen with real life memories, although I have not found a definitive cue that triggers them
