Maury's dream interpretation
Personally I think Maury's interpretation of his dream is wrong. The physical object falling on his neck didn't spark off the dream retrospectively but was simply a precognative warning from outside his consciousness (the Daemon trying to tell him the object was loose and was going to fall on him). He, being totally wrapped in sleep was oblivious to the external world but this sensor mechanism wasn't and tried to warn him. Even upon waking he was unaware of his daemon, so tried to reason out what happened purley from the mechanistic universe angle of Newton - hence the object must have caused the dream backwards, rather than an unconscious part of him, tried to warn him in his dream state of that which it was aware of.
