Hello. You are describing a fugue state. All perfectly normal. Like when you drive down the highway you don't remember looking at every sign even though you probably do. The mind uses filtering to dump unnecessary stimuli from our "sensorium" so you were there but you dont retain. Recent studies on the function of deep sleep is just that, to clear the memory centers of extraneous memories of the day

We donot need. There is physically increased fluid flow between brain cells to flush out metabolites during sleep as welll. So you were resting your mind. Dr frank
