precognition in dreams.
I know that the scientific world would say it isn't possible and I think I understand what you are saying about illusory correlation. I don't think
illusory correlation would really explain what happened to me though. There were just too many details that matched.
What scientific body are we refering to? I think precongitive dreams fits quite nicely into many quantum mechanic models.
IMO: Illusory correlation (activation-synthesis hypothesis) as an end all explanation to dreams is complete nonsense. The theory states all dreams are
random and meaningless because the neural activity during REM is seemingly random (so dreams are JUST the minds way of interpreting this random
During waking state the brain is firing seemingly random signals all throughout the brain (typically
less intense then REM, but monitor your
brain when you're in a serious combat situation...in the dark). Point is neural activity is just that...active. It is just as random
waking state. So then by this model are we to conclude waking life is random and meaningless? I'm not trying to open the door for a deep
philisophical discussion...I think you see my point.
