I had just been reading about the holographic universe theory - which put forward a case that we are 2D holograms - potentially with a link to a higher 3D consciousness.
If every move is made without thought (the thought comes afterwards to suit the decision) we are just like SIMS in the computer game - every move being controlled by a higher being.

As i said... it's too hard to explain.
My explanation didn't even say what i meant it to.
I think I'll leave it because I'll probably sound mental if i write the explanation i have in my mind right now... It actually sounds mental as I'm running through it in my head

That's because your brain told you it was mental 10 seconds before that, you gotta fight back, take control!!!!
P.S Did you mean after it happened, you "realised" became "aware" That you knew it was going to happen somehow before it happened. Haha sounds confusing. Is this what you meant?

ScienceDaily (July 24, 2007) — The unusual case of a man with a tiny brain caused by massive ventricular enlargement, who has led a normal life, is studied in a clinical update in The Lancet.
The man was 44-years-old at the time, married with two children, and worked as a civil servant. He went to hospital after suffering mild left leg weakness. He was treated by Dr Lionel Feuillet and colleagues, Hôpital de la Timone and Faculté de Médecine, Université de la Méditerranée, Marseille, France, who authored the clinical update.
Analysis of the man’s medical history revealed at the age of six months, he had had a shunt inserted into his head to drain away hydrocephalus (water on the brain), of unknown cause. At the age of 14, he had complained of unsteadiness and left leg weakness, which cleared up after the shunt was revised. His neurological development and medical history were otherwise normal.
French doctors are amazed that a 44-year-old civil servant with an abnormally small brain has led a normal life with a slightly lower than normal IQ, according to a report on Physorg.com.
Doctors said the father of two went to the Hopital de la Timone in Marseille with mild weakness in his left leg. He was given a CT scan and an MRI, which showed that his cerebral cavities or ventricles had massively expanded, according a case history to be published in Saturday's Lancet.
"The brain itself, meaning the grey matter and white matter, was completely crushed against the sides of the skull," Dr. Lionel Feuillet told AFP. "The images were most unusual... the brain was virtually absent."
