    Im pretty sure everyone knows what I'm talking about when I say sleeping 'visions'.
    It goes like this:

    You go to sleep on monday (for example), and you dream of a certain moment of only a few seconds.
    When you wake up on tuesday, you have forgotten the dream and just go on with the day.

    And then at a certain moment, the moment you've dreamed of last night happens.
    Then after or even while that moment happens, you remember that you've dreamt it last night.

    So in a way you've seen the future, only you don't know it anymore [​IMG]

    I've even had this thing for a very long time. Like I dreamt of a moment of a few seconds, and that moment happened like 3 weeks later, and then I remembered it.
    Very weird stuff [​IMG]

    You have precognition, which is good and bad in itself. You shouldn't let it control your life. Because even if you see something, you don't know how or why and when it happens. If there's something you would like to change in the future, you should do it on your own without relying on second sight. Because if you do depend on it, then you'll conditioned into thinking that the future is predetermined, which it isn't.

    Right now I guess you would be extremely good at racing games?

    I've had the same thing happen to me in the past as well... and I never though anything of it before. It has not happened in quite some time that I can remember though......

    Believe it or not, I actually have those things too sometimes, where I see something in a dream, forget about it, and then when it happens I remember I've seen it in my dream. I think it's mostly luck, just like those famous prophets that predicts the future (think Nostradamus). I can write something vague on a piece of paper, then in an undetermined amount of time it WILL happen in one form or another. Same thing with dreams, you dream of something, forget it, then sometime later it happens, and you think it was something you dreamed, but in fact it was something vague that seemed to fit in with the event.

    No, I don't have that.
    I think all people have this, I just would like to hear an explanation.

    Are you perhaps referring to what's known as "déjà vu" (lit. "already seen" in French)

    It has happened to me many times, it's a strange phenomenon, because obviously we know we can't see into the future. Sometimes I've dreamed of situations, and in real life it leads up to that, but then changes and isn't exactly as I've dreamed, which perhaps leads me to believe I'm just tricking myself and haven't seen/done it before the event.

    Yeah, I think that's it.
    But I remember an occasion where I had this thing, and it was with a new teacher (that I've never seen in my life).
    I've dreamt about it and at the moment, I knew what she was going to say.
    I hadn't seen her in my life, but still I had the Deja Vu thingy.

    If the note on Wikipedia is correct, about 70% of people studied had experienced it (as well as most people who posted on this thread), so it is not abnormal to have this feeling of déjà vu. Still, it's a strange unexplained (unexplainable?) phenomenon.

    Yeah I get it all the time, it's quite bizzare, makes me feel like life is looping around like a moebius strip or something.

    Me too, Sometime I dream a strange situation. And can barely remember it in the morning.
    Then after amount of times, it happen, I feel "I'm sure I've seen this situation in my dream before"


    the problem is how can we know which dream will became true?

    Seriously though, when you go to sleep your mind reboots itself and processes everything you've been through that day. It could be possible that you just have a very predictable life [​IMG]

    [​IMG] If that's the case. I had a dream around 10 years ago that I would be working now at a certain place.
    Huh, never thought it as precognition, just as a random dream scrapped up by memories.

    When you sleep, basically all the unneccesary brain parts shut-down, excluding hearing and body functions and dreams are random synaptic bursts that happen from time to time, if I remember correctly.

    Wish I could offer you the explanation in such a way that a nuerologist wouldn't look at me as if I had slept through his lecture.

    But here's the basics.

    You brain is transmitting data from your eyes in such a way and at such a speed, that you "think" you have already experienced something, when it fact it is just a quirk of biology.

    Sorry to wreck the fun of all those that want it to be something paranormal.

    Maybe your brain is just telling you that you knew that would happen. (...that sentence made 100% sense)

    OR

    It's time to train in Lucid Dreaming and take control to solve this mystery

    Dreams consist of many common day occurrences and/or your mind combines what you know into a guess of what may happen. Then 3 weeks later when your mom makes eggs for breakfast, you think holy crap, I dreamt the future! But in reality, it was just one of many millions of things you have dreamed happening which is bound to happen in everyday life.

    I've had this happen many times through my life. I've come to a conclusion that, its not so much that i've actually had the dream of whats going on, but its just a brain-fuck (more or less) that you feel like you've seen it before in a dream. I believe that its a glitch in the brain for a hot second, and its perceived as having happened in some way before. But then again, i'm a HUGE skeptic on a lot of topics.

    But you don't have to take my word for it.
