I am writing a short story in which someone speculates that his/her world (basically identical to ours) is actually all a dream. It turns out to be somewhat true, but their world is only a daydream of a person that ends so quickly that they don't remember. A parallel is made with the death of one person remembering their life in a split second (a hypothesis that I'm not sure about), only here, the death is that of billions of people...should we care about "real" figments?

I know this idea has probably been developed several times before, but the question I'm asking is actually, In what in genre would this story belong?

(And yes, I know that even literal dreams last a split second; the idea is that dreams can be remembered, but this quick daydream the MC has isn't remembered at all.)
