Somtimes, when I'm dreaming, I'll dream a string of events that leads to actual events outside the dream, in the real world...
Example: In a dream someone will walk through a door and close it behind them at the exact time I hear someone closing a door somewhere else in the
Another: Something will be happening in the dream where someone or something requires more light, and someone will turn on a light in the house right
at the time the light is lit in the dream.
The most recent: I live in the mountains, and my clock radio doesn't get good reception, so I use the highly annoying alarm function to wake up. I
had a dream where I was trying to gain access to a certain room in a building by manipulating the wires in the security door system, and right as I
cut a wire, my alarm went off, but in the dream, it was the building's security system. I just think that is more than good timing. Could it be that
we have internal clocks that always know what time it is?
One thing I think might explain this is that while we are dreaming, our normal sense of time progression may not apply like it does in the real world.
Such that in the case of the sound of the door closing in the real world, our minds could construct an event to incorporate that sound without being
bound to the normal concepts of past, present, and future. Hearing the sound, creating an event in the dream that corresponds to the sound, but making
it seem that the events in the dream took place before the real event happened, when actually it didn't. Does that make any sense?
Another possible explanation is clairvoyance or premonition. Having awareness of remote locations, or knowing things are going to happen before they
do. There is a lot we still don't know about the mind, how dreams work, and our true capabilities.
Anyone else have things like this happen to them?
