It's quite possible this guy dreamed something completely unrelated to 9/11 and then "translated" that dream into what he percieved as a terrorist
attack of some kind.
Technically, anyone can "translate" a dream into something they think makes sense but that doesn't necessarily make you precognitive.
Eventually, if you do this enough, you will get one or two predictions correct out of hundreds, maybe even thousands of attempts. Even if you are not
precognitive at all.
"Lucid dreaming", if you do it properly, can teach you alot about yourself and make you realize how vivid and detailed your dreams really are when
you don't realize it. There are ways to document the dream cycle that are really easy too.
What I used to do is this. If I would wake up in the middle of the night, I would write down two or three quick things I remembered from said dream.
Otherwise, I would do it in the morning when dreams seemed to be more vivid.
Later on in the day, when you look at said words you've written down, at first it doesn't make any sense at all. You almost have to meditate on
what happened and after a few minutes you start realizing not only the connections between the words you wrote down but usually the pieces fall
together as to what the dream was REALLY about.
Hence, you gain a long term, conscious memory of those dreams after you put the pieces together and if you hadn't don't that you probably would've
forgotten the dream forever. Probably you would've never even known you dreamed in the first place.
After a while of doing this you gain the ability to trigger your conscious mind to wake you up after a vivid dream so you can write a couple things
down and then fall back asleep. If you meditate regularly, I noticed that you also gain the ability to control the dream and all aspects within it
from a conscious standpoint. It is a profound feeling to be semi-conscious within a dream constructed by your own mind. You realize that the dream
doesn't control you but that it is the other way around.
The dream state doesn't seem so random after you gain a "lucid" ability to consciously control the outcome of the dream.
One reason people might have deja-vu is because they dreamed about something but don't remember the dream. When the dream starts to come true, a
light turns on and you start to think you've been there before. It's very plausible that you really were only it was a dream that you can't
I had one dream a few years ago in which I watched everything my roommate was doing on the other side of the house one night. The next day I
explained to him what I saw.. What I saw in the dream is exactly what happened. All I'm saying is that regardless of the guy likely being a
crackpot, there are aspects of the human mind that we don't understand and the possibility still remains that it is possible to see things in dreams
before they actually occur.
