Not really. It is more likely, per modern scientific research, that dreaming is simply not recalled, rather than ceasing.
Negative. We both agree that the right (lucky) people are not likely to have been studied, at the right time(s).
Also, when the person is in the awakened state or some version of samadhi-state "24-7", it's yet to be seen if alpha-wave state would ever obtain, so that dreaming might become no longer a part of the landscape in sleep, nor at any other hours of day (as it was not, in my several months long experience; and then shorter times after subsequent stoppages of everything; that is, during lengthy episodes of "no-mind").
Lots to do!, for "Science". It's early/earliest days in Science, vis-a-vis
original human inheritance, original human nature, the awakened state, the awakened condition. Studies of subjects with mind when not moving for weeks and months.
As a scientist myself, I welcome what can be looked-at and looked-into. We know what the samsara state looks like in a great cohort of volunteers or subjects, and not so much at all about what the awakened state looks like, to the same scientific instruments, study, and methodology.
Personally, we may make first-person reports for willing scientists of various kinds to ingest. But I'd like also to see what traditional scientific study instrumental methods might expose and document. This could be good for all humankind, even for those who do not practice as we Zen Buddhists do. Early days, yes, but let's see what's coming soon.
