“IMAGINE your next vacation. You are relaxing on a beach, waves lapping at the shore, a cool breeze wafting through the trees and the sun caressing your skin. Fill in the details. What else do you see? Now, remember yesterday's commute. Again, a picture emerges. You are on the train or in your car, or maybe just wandering from your kitchen to your desk. Can you remember what you were wearing? Perhaps you have forgotten that part already.
Without breaking sweat, you can hurtle yourself backwards or forwards in time in your mind's eye - what is known as "mental time travel". One of these visions really happened and the other was fantasy, yet the act of conjuring them up probably felt very similar. It's as if, embedded somewhere in your brain, there is a time machine that can take you forwards and backwards at will. “
”…we have several different types of long term memory, which can be broadly broken down into three catagories: semantic (knowledge of facts), episodic (memories of events in our lives) and procedural (knowing how to do something like ride a bicycle).
”This type of fallibility can be easily demonstrated in lab studies. People shown a list of words such as “tired”, “bed”, “dream”, “doze” and “pillow” can be easily tricked into remembering that the word “sleep” appeared on the list too, even if it did not.

I agree completely with this article but I tend to avoid discussing this subject for my own reasons.
I feel there needs to be further study and a greater weight on psychic phenomena. Thanks to TV, some of the shows like medium are bringing a greater awareness and acceptance into society. We use a nominal percentage of our brain, humans just don't really have any idea just what our brain is capable of.

I am able to do this and have done a few experiments myself. Most of the time it happens during sleep but if i am dedicated enough i can do it while awake, it takes a lot of concentration but sometimes i can do it very quickly. Whenever i tell someone about what i saw it never comes true so i guess talking about it alters the future. Sort of the butterfly effect, one simple change throws everything into chaos. So i don't talk about what i have seen anymore and they all come true exactly.
When you see the visions it is as if you are actually there inside your body experiencing everything as if you were awake. I have tried to come up with explanations as to how it works but i have never been able to come up with something solid. Searching the internet you find that it is quite a common phenomenon. If only i could control what i saw, then all sorts of possibilities would open up.
