First of all, I have had dreams which have come true. And that is so old school that I won't worry about it when I say, you are also likely to have had a similar experience with this phenomena.
Secondly, I have also been able to utilize this little skill called dream control, and change a dream with it. You should check it out, it's l33t. I bet you have dream control to. At some level, you do.
Thirdly, it just so happens, that I have had this type of dream control during a dream, that one day later came true. And in having said experience, I have seen the changes happen here.
What is a dream?

Precognitive dreaming isn't really going to be a huge sway for you trying to convince people that 'this' is a dream, as old school as it may be. I've had precognitive dreams many times, but never on a scale bigger than myself and never about anything more than items I have misplaced or obvious outcomes on my daily routine.
I'm curious as to what extent and scale of precognitive dreams you've dreamed up?
Dream control, by that do you mean lucid dreaming or a conscious dream?
I've had a decent amount of these myself, but never too involving, due to the fact I will wake up within a short time after I have realized that I was dreaming. Again, what extent and scale have they been?
You could easily chalk that up to anything from acting on your dream(s) so that they come true, not on a conscience level. Even to some coincidence or misinformation from your dreams, changing small details in your mind so that they apply to the scenario you're currently in.
By "see the changes happen here" do you mean this 'dream' that is reality?
My opinion is thus, it's nothing more than images, and other constructs of familiar shapes and sounds that you've encountered in your life. But, there is no real definition for what a dream is, just the opinions of the people who attempt to put such a abstract concept like a dream into terms people can understand.
It seems as the more you post on your concept of reality and dreams, the more it seems that you sway yourself away from the certainty you had on your OP and a few other ones.
