Over 70% of people will see things in their dreams and then at some point later see the same thing in real life.
This just amazes me. It's like we are looking into the future in a sort of way without even meaning to do so. Think if researchers could study this more, look a little deeper. Possibly figuring out how to control this. To somehow direct the thought so we could look into the future. I feel like it could very much be possible.

i think that's largely, if not completely, based on coincidence though. don't you see the same things almost every day anyways? what would you see in a dream that would be so unlikely to see in the future? i think self fulfilling prophecies are silly, it's pretty much predicting an event and waiting until it happens.

I agree with this completely. I think that we may subconsciously retain information so that when we "have a vision" within a dream its really something that we've seen before but hadn't made a conscious effort to remember. So when we see that object again, we get this sort of Deja Vu. With that said, I am with Jung in believing that our dreams might have a deeper meaning. After all, dreams are the bridge between the conscious and subconscious.

this would happen to me a few times but when i dream i try to remember as much as i can and recently i have done this more and more, and as a result i get that sense of deja vu about 5 times out of the week. its like the more you focus on your dreams the easier it becomes to actually do this because most times its dead on accurate like i remember the dream as soon as it happens and its not just once a day sometimes i get the sense 3 times a day.

DMT. Research it. Astral Projection. Meditation. Dreaming. All of these things produce DMT in your brain. the chemical that makes you see things in your dreams. Lots of research has been done that you just have to look for. It wouldn't be hard to argue a connection of the production of DMT to the possibility of prophesying the future.

Yea dude, I dunno if I believe in this or not, but I heard of this thing called the Akashic records, and it exists on a type of energy plain that has records of all events of history, past present and future. The only way to access these is through astral projection though, and I hear that people astral project every night in our sleep, which causes dreams. Perhaps in some of our dreams, our astral selves venture too far and reach these records and see what happens in them, and can predict the future. We aren't aware that it could be prophecy cuz we think it's just a dream.

Ive done alota diggin around with astral projection and have done it only a few times myself. Your on the right track man but the only thing is when you astral project you can literally turn around and look at your body (which you just left) its basicly an OBE which you can enduce simply be meditating. its not easy tho. While as lucid dreaming is entirely in your own head where you controll everything. Those records do exist btw.

This is what deja vu is. You are trying to remember 3 things (a,b,and c) but in reality only A and B happened therefore making C seem like a memory you are trying to recall. The attempt at recollecting a memory that has not truly happened makes you feel as though it has happened but you can't remember when or where.

Objective input:
Dreams are actually composed of scenes thought up by you, but taken from an archive within your memory!
This is because its actually impossible for your brain to think something up that you've never seen or thought of before! (i.e. faces/bodies and colours)
So everything you see in a dream may just be a repeat of a daily schedule u have and it happens to repeat on itself because you think about an event which WILL occur just before falling asleep, then dream out your interpretation of it.
I dream about dying sometimes, and in different ways! We just dont know enough about dreams to actually learn anything from em :P (or take anything away in that right)
Love the idea thought cant say I haven't felt it on occasion too, have an upvote! :D

this seems to happen to me when i have a dream thats realistic but i wake up and think "why the fuck would i do that?" or "why the fuck would i be there?" and then usually within a week i see a sequence of things happening that is a precise copy of what i saw and even how i felt in the dream. its always about a 10 second sequence of events, totally random (or at least seeming so) and within the first few seconds its like a key and the second it starts i know it and can sometimes notice things leading up to something i had seen in a dream and get this feeling of knowing what will happen next, and then im correct. i notice it happens more often when i fall asleep high

ACTUALLY, this isnt seeing the future at all. sometimes your brain can mess up its own perception of things and will create a completely fabricated memory to cover its own tracks. so if you see something and realize "Ive dreamt this before! Deja Vu!" its actually your brain convincing you you've seen it before, when in reality it's a completely new event. think about THAT one....you're all lying to yourselves

(also maybe why stoners feel like they get deja vu more and can "see the future")

If we could really FEEL and see everything in that dream, then we will be time traveling

i am a frequent lucid dreamer and i can assure you that you could be dreaming right now. thats how real it feels while dreaming. then when you wake the next day its just a fuzzy memory. but sensations and perception are much different along with non-existant laws of physics. also to relate this to weed because this is highdeas, if you smoke or even think about being high in a dream, you get high in the dream! its a crazy experience to toke up in dream land

I dont know, because you cant dream about someone or something you havent seen before. They may be someone you dont remember like a wal mart cashier, or that guy at the local bank... But your sub concious remembers them! Amazing stuff.

Our brain Is what we call a time deivce. maybe not, It knows exactly what we are going to do. Dreams are in reality a big ass trip. But is the trip real? Maybe our dreams our a premature explanation of our Fate. But How does Fat exist in this big black place we call space? Does it just exist in this world we call earth? what if our brains are LOW key being fed information by some unknown information of the future to help us? Where? Who? what? questions flood our mind, because we havent unlocked the special place we have deep within our minds. our minds are the key, Because we know alot of things, we just relearn them from experiences, or from dreams. Dreams is where we are in reality Free. its the chemicals, that enduse such a expirence into which we can be free, free from the human grasp, the JUJU that is keeping us in check. Once in check mate the Juju is gone and we are lost.

Dreams are sorta like a training for your "Fight or Flight" instinct. They use your short term memory to make simulations of situations you might run into. They've done tests by making cats sleep walk somehow and when they were dreaming they were acting out hunting down a rodent. I used to run away from cops alot as a teen and back then I dreamed of running from cops all the time. The dream might not always be that direct, but they are preparing your "fight or flight" for future events
