Mandukya Upanishad isn't about waking, dreaming, deep sleep or A, U, M. It's about what waking, dreaming, deep sleep and A, U, M point to.

We are the Ghost and the machine is within It.

I think that was the point, but feel free to embellish. :-)

That is exactly my understanding of the difference between "normal" deep sleep and consious-sleep/samadhi. In conscious sleep, one can also watch the transition from the observed "deep sleep" to the so-called "waking state".

I love the way you post videos pointing to the exact point of interest in the video.
