Pretty cool Allen. The power of dreams is amazing, isn't it?
Yes it is. I know it sounds weird, but I've actually had Shirata sensei "visit" in my dreams a few times and teach me. Usually it is a pretty arduous affair with him telling me, "No, go back. Do it again." Usually this goes on over and over again until I think my head will explode, one of those dreams you can't escape from. Finally, when he thinks I, "might understand now" the dream will end. The cool part, which is why I don't ignore, and actually look forward to, this kind of dream, is when I try what I was "taught" via the dream in the dojo, it invariably works, and works all over the place.
