It's quite common to have dreams in which you are observing yourself in the dream. If you think about it, we do something similar to this in our waking lives all the time. We do or say something, and a part of our mind separately wonders why am I doing/saying that? Why did I do/say that? Should I have done/said that?

In waking life, you only have one physical body and you are restricted by physical laws, so all your thinking has to go on in one brain, and one body, so you can’t see that separate part of your mind as a distinct entity. However, in dreams you don’t have a physical body that conforms to physical laws, so the part of your mind that observes your behaviour and questions it can be represented by another body, another you.
