There was a thread on deja vu a couple of months ago, apparently there is a scientific explantion: the brain confuses the present with the past which causes you to believe that you have been in exactly the same situation before.
Memory? You mean the same thing little pieces of plastic do? Or magnetic Tape?
The only thing in the entire universe that doesnt have a logical answer, dreams....
Someday, we're going to invent a pill that removes emotions and dreams, and I can just imagine what the world will be like, however that probably conflicts with your "global conciousness" thing.

Emotions do all sorts of things that probably make sense from their point of view, but I cannot see that.
Emotions have nothing to do with being "free" and I would say we'd be more free without them. No one is bound to feel sad or embarassed without their consent. No jealousy forces you to avenge anything. Everyone would see things very clearly. True, you lose your "gut feeling" and also "love", but you would never be confused or frightened again. You would probably even be able to predict far more events than ever possible since you have no bias and are more aware of the actual states of the world.
Dreams, though I dislike them so, are caused by the day's events, and if you were with your friend during an event, its not surprising if you both had a similiar dream. However I highly doubt you could communicate with each other effectively.
Then we would not be human at all...
That's sound like more of an assumption than an actuality...Also, what about precognitive based dreams?
you do not by chance consider yourself a Vulcan do you?
