Have you ever had a dream that seems to give you glimpse into the future? Not anything involving the world but merely your own future. It’s never really something big like seeing an asteroid hurtling toward earth. Could be something simple like an object and sometime in the future you will see the exact same object and be reminded of whatever was in the dream. If these dreams are glimpses of future events than it would mean there is no such thing as choice, only destiny. Or could it just be some higher force revealing to you what your current choices has been leading you up to and you’ll be left yet again in front of another fork in road.

Well at least that’s what I think. That maybe your mind has calculated certain events, put the puzzle together, and somehow managed to see into the future. These events are usually minor or at least they seem minor to me. But like I said they’re like forks in the road. That your left with two choices that will inevitably decide your destiny. Unfortunately life only allows you to see the outcome of one choice. You can only walk one path.. Not both of them. I say they’re minor because whichever road you take doesn’t change you much as a person. Only tiny bits of who you are and what you believe in. Or maybe they just seem minor because I can’t see where the other path would have leaded me to. But life is like that whether your stuck between roads or not it changes you on daily basis.

I’ll be honest, it’s hard for the explain exactly what these dreams are and what they’re suppose to mean. I’m just making guesses here. It’s like one moment your walking down the road and all of sudden the entire atmosphere around you reminds you of something you dreamt about. The smell of the air, the weather, people around you, the thing your doing and an object could all trigger a reminder in your mind that you’ve dreamt about this whole situation before. I don’t think about it much and usually chase the thought away like some pesky fly, but I still notice it. It’s only been recently that I’ve been thinking about it much more. Guess I try and deny it ever happened because I don’t want to feel like I’m abnormal or crazy in some way. I’ve begun to wonder if maybe there is more to these dreams. That maybe they hold some meaning but for now I can only guess. I’m not even sure what to call them…dejavu? A prediction? Something?… I don’t know.

Sounds like something everyone will experience at one point in their lives..
Nothing special here to say the least.

I dreamt of a particular shaped building and road with me going down the right road then years later during a camping trip that happened exactly or two weeks ago dreaming of a 4 second long snippet of dialogue on the news then next day that exact snippet and image appeared exactly as dreamt on the national news.

Can't say what causes it or what it means but it's odd.

Yeah,maybe you're right. Maybe it's nothing big. But it's happened a few times though I'm not sure what to make of it.

When i was younger it would happen to me about every day. I remember the most unique one was me about 9 years old, and i was driving by a stoplight with a broken fire hydrant squirting water onto the red light. about 4 months later, it actually happened. There was no way my mind could have pieced together that the fire hydrant was going to burst and i would be driving by it that day (at least i don't think so anyways). Nowadays, I'm lucky if I'm blessed with this glimpse once a month.

Edit;
I have also considered that i never did actually dream it, and my brain "thinks" i did.

Yeah, that's exactly the kind of thing that happens to me. I just don't know what to make of it. Truly strange.

I had a dream a few months ago which really made me think "What the hell?"

I had a dream that it was the summer of this year. It was an overcast day, the clouds were a kind of yellowy grey and it was really humid.

Everyone for some reason or another was drawn from their homes out into the street to look up at something in the sky (it wasn't anything of a Blue Beam nature) - it was more a natural phenomenon.

Either way, the main point was, when everyone returned indoors, there was a new red and black box attached to all TVs. Cable TV and Freeview boxes were now redundant. This was the only thing through which you could receive TV and it was all state controlled.

I woke up panicking that the world had changed for the worst. Perhaps my dream won't prove to be far off the mark :¬\

I've also considered it but I can't really be sure. Maybe someone will come along and shed some light on this.

Perhaps you are right. Guess only time will tell if I'm going to attach a little red box to my tv. Strange,isn't it?

It's all so easy to explain, but yet again you all fail miserable at it.

Your dreams will mostly go about a subject you've been thinking of. And probably most of this forum members spend their day wondering about: ufo's, ET's, Coverups, Illuminati, Evil Free Masons and Jewish bankiers and how they are corrupting thier future and the end of the whole world.

So it is no surprise your dreams will have similairities. Didn't you guys learn that when you are asleep your brains will process all the information of that day which can result in dreams ????? And that that deju vu feeling is caused because of a slow brainprocess that particulair moment????

Or is it something what they want you to think

I'm familiar with the phenomenon you refer to. I believe it is caused because the dream world is a very complex place compared to the physical world...You have no physical body, but an "astral" body, which is usually described as an emotional body, not physical or mental. that's why dreams are always about the feeling, you always feel when things will happen, or you can only feel who's around you or where you are. you don't really think in dreams..maybe a glimmer of thought, but nothing an animal probably couldn't do. When people are lucid dreaming they usually say if they think too much they will self destruct the dream and wake up. but, it has also been studied that there are a few different "layers" of dreaming, different depths of sleep and different levels of awareness. once humans are in a deep deep sleep, that is the place where our "astral body" is sort of abandoned because the dream state is so deep, and thus very emotional; so no body is needed. you're soooo conscious of emotion that there is no room for a body.

Here, in these realms is where the real magic of dreaming happens. this is where we are connected and communicated with by other beings that want to share information. and your own "higher self" goes off and does it's own contacting with other human "higher selves". you can communicate with the universal mind, the higher consciousness' that we might call gods. In this state it is said that our future is constructed. on a very very unconscious level we all construct our own future, based on what our "higher", more wise and calculating mind believes we should experience in order to best suit our own particular life path. this means the good and the bad. no one is perfect and sometimes what seems like a real shi++y situation to our conscious selves, will be a very profound and much needed learning experience in the long run, which is how wise and caring our "higher" self is. So in this magic place we decide what were going to do next week, or tomorrow or whatever... and we use our extraordinary psychic abilities to contact friends or partners or anyone we come in contact with to say: "hello jim, do you think it would be okay if we got into an argument this week? i need a good kick in the butt and you always know just how to tell me (my conscious everyday mind) what i need to hear."

usually this deep sleep is followed by the most active dreams of all. this is because after you're done doing business down there iin that timeless place of emotion, you start to come back out of the deepness and you adopt your "astral" body once again,, and this is where we remember most of our dreams.

but wait! theres more... because that magic place is so deep in our unconscious, once we get back to the "subconscious" plane/astral realm, those ideas and things that were assembled in deep sleep need to be translated into the subconscious in order to eventually be transferred to the normal everyday conscious self, where the situation you created in deep sleep comes to real, physical manifestation. the only way our mind copes with this transfer of information is in the form of dreams...the weird ones most particularly. the ones that usually don't make ANY sense, are the dream representation of an idea that was created in the most deep sleep. so when the deja vu effect/glimpses into the future happen, i would say it's usuually because we already dreamt about assembling the day, and already practiced what you were going to do. all the jargon about dreams being random thoughts that have no plot or meaning, that's a load of ignorance IMO.

that, in short
, is how I personally would explain that sort o' stuff.

Actually for me now its strange events that seem ominous that seem to happen too many times. I live next to train tracks which i have driven over for 5 years i have had it stop maybe 1 or two times then about a month ago i had 3 instances which kind of scared me. The first one was at night and the lights came on and the gate closed but no train came i waited 5 minutes then drove around it. Then two days on a different road and in a different city i might add the gate closed while i driving over the tracks. A week later the same thing happened while i was coming home from school. all in one month

I'm gonna dismiss this post straight away because the news clip was about something not discussed until that day (if only I could remember what it was right now) and the street hing has nothing to do with ATS since I dreamt it as a small child and went on the trp many years later as a 12 year old having forgotten about it until I saw the street and forked roads during the drive.

Not everything related to how the brain works can be easily explained and to shrug it off with that kind of reasoning is frankly a bit of an insult to those who experience the feeling of deja vu.

Well, this post is a bit of a insult for people like me, acedemics, neuroscientist and all those others who can think rationally.

Why don't you just stop, just stop telling complete disinformation.

A friend of my which works with the mentally ill told me once "people who are really crazy, will deny this in every possible way, and will never accept that what they say or believe is absolute nonsense even with hard proof."

This is what I see here everyday on this forum, you are all just utterly ill and I am here to point it out.

just warning you here buddy, for your own good:

Terms and Conditions
16) Behavior: You will not behave in an abusive, libelous, defamatory, hateful, intolerant, bigoted and/or racist manner, and will not harass, threaten, nor attack anyone.

not saying what you said is harsh or anything, but one of my posts just got censored by the powers that be for my use of the word "creepy". it is very wise to retain positive in the midst of negative, or else the negative will take over.

I'm sorry you've been so conditioned to depend on a government-approved education institutions like science to find "facts" rather than real personal experience. I was once very scientific and was an Atheist. it doesn't take a lot to turn you around really, just an experience with the wonderful mysterious universe. this is just my opinion, of course.

To be honest, once I was like you and I also believed in things like conspiracies, but then, one day, I saw that they were full of #, racism, antisemitism, hatred against others, dogma's, and also lots extrimism. So I don;t believe anymore.

it doesn't take a lot to turn you around really. this is just my opinion, of course.

hahah i hope you're not referring to me as being antisemitic... I have said no word about Jews or their religion. nor is it possible for me to know your nationality or religion, race or creed. when i think of you all see is "notimportant". didn't mean that offensively but you literally set yourself up for it.

Well, all those conspiracy theories are always leading to some point were the Jewish bankers (Rotschild family) will come to speech, and everything is blamed on them. I see there's also some hatred growing in the theories towards FreeMasons and other groups.

I just don't get it that everyone is pointing fingers to others...

What does a 21st century home look like? We recently gave a rundown of some of the features we can expect in the next wave of amazing, green houses (in 21 Ways To Build A 21st Century Home). But since we’re already in the 21st Century, you’d expect to see some of these innovations put into practice already. And you’d be right. Here are 15 amazing futuristic innovations that you can see at work right now:


Image: Empyrean
Modular Manufacture. Prefab houses come in all sorts of weird and wonderful shapes – but let’s get rid of one preconception. Cramped? Tell that to someone living in a Dwell home.



Image: Earthflow
Green Building Materials. And to think we used the phrase “house of straw” to mean impermanent. I can’t see this strawbale-packed house from Earthflow Design Works (complete with pervious concrete driveway) going anywhere in a hurry.


Image: Loq-Kit
Keeping It Together. We’ve featured them before, but the Loq-Kit house never gets old.


Image: Quadlock
Living Walls… or even better, a living roof, as with Tom Ground’s Gimingham Eco House by Quadlock building solutions. But why stop with grass? Why not grow trees on the outside of your house?


Image: Thilo Bein / Discovery
Sonic Cloaking. Not yet! The sonic cloak is still in development, and it’ll be years before we see (or hear) it manifesting in our homes. But for now, think on this: noise is vibration, and noise is transmitted into the home via vibrations in windows – so if they’re vibrating already (powered sustainably, of course), that would make them soundproof. Clever!


Images: EcoFuss
“Traditional” Alternative Energy. Solar panels are currently a fairly obtrusive design feature – but with technological breakthroughs (such as this one) solar panels will disappear into designs, leaving them as clean-looking as this eco-house proposed for the outskirts of Nicosia, Cyprus. Even though it’s solar powered – nary a panel in sight.



Images: Ibis
Recycled Water. In the Florence Lofts, Sebastopol (California), all gray water from washing, bathing and laundry is fed into landscape irrigation, helped along with freshly-scrubbed rain water. Read the full story at Inhabitat.


Image: GoodCleanTech
Ground Heat. A good example is the Orchid House in Britain’s Cotswolds region – some of this unique looking eco-house’s power supply is geothermal energy. Price? $6,000 per square foot. Ouch.


Images: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture
Passive Heating. These passive houses from Swedish architects Kjellgren Kaminsky rely on top-quality insulation to keep heating energy requirements down to a minimum. The tree erupting from the central atrium is a nice touch. (via cubeme).



Images: ZeroHouse
Electronic Regulation. Looking like it’s about to lurch into the sky, the Zero House is a model of tailored energy efficiency – all run through a fully customized “house brain” computer-system.



Electrical Lights. With the advent of LED lighting, we’re rediscovering color again. Take the roof of the Evergreen State College, using the Color Kinetics lighting system. Not only is it the green way forward (LEDs are now more efficient than CFLs), it’s the fun way forward.


Image: Parans
Natural Light. Sunpipes are cropping up everywhere, and no wonder – they’re a brilliant idea (excuse the pun). But they’re just the start. For example, look at what Parans is doing with fiberoptics, feeding natural light all around the home (see more over at Treehugger).


Image: greenUPGRADER
Rain Harvesting. A rainwater-collection system is compulsory in the next generation of eco-housing – but it’s far from a new idea. As greenUPGRADER notes, Japanese rain chains are a traditional and stylish way of diverting rainwater down the side of the house and into a collection tank.


Image – JLS Design
Ventilation. How do you keep your eco-house cool and aerated? Along with advances in electronically controlled temperature and airflow, why not get higher into the breeze? You’re looking at Joel L. Sherman’s Steel Tree House – one of many treehouses featured in a series of posts over at Inhabitat.
