Well I was using the populous definition of random.
Humans have an imagination, we can think of new ideas even if they never existed prior, including faces is what I was trying to say.
Chronic Déjà Vu
Recently, there have been studies of people who have what researchers are terming "chronic déjà vu." Four senior citizens in the United Kingdom have experienced déjà vuin a constant state. They refused to watch the news because they felt like they already knew what was going to be said (even though they really didn't). Or, they wouldn't go to the doctor because they felt like they had already been and didn't see the point.
Researchers have suggested that these individuals have experienced a failure in the temporal lobe. The circuits that are activated when you remember something have gotten stuck in the "on" position, so to speak. This has essentially created memories that don't actually exist [ref].

The last few months I have some very vivid dreams here and there. These dreams are always somekind of adventure with family members and we are all in our twenties (we are in real also about the same age but in our late fourties). As a matter of fact I like dreaming those dreams...
Along the way in my dream I "see" and "meet" people who just as well be people in reality.
I can see their faces clearly and wonder how it is possible that my brain generate these random faces...either male or female.
Can it be that I dream the life of a me in a parralel universe...? The dreams are close to real circumstances so,......no pink elephants there.
Anybody simular dream experiances or thoughts about how this all works in my brain?

Through-out your day your unconscious mind is constantly recording and storing information on what you see. Just because you aren’t aware you saw someone doesn’t mean you haven’t. Lets say thirty people cross your path and you only really look at and notice 10 of the people. Your unconscious mind has seen all thirty people. So just because you don’t think you ever seen these people in reality you have. You can’t dream what you don’t know just like you can’t time travel past your date of birth or death. I think I cracked Stephen Hawking’s question of where are the people of the future if time travel was possible. Ironically when we master it we will realize we can’t go past the date of our birth or forward past our death. The question never was if you could time travel anyway it was how you do it with the physical body.Our mind and physical body are governed by different laws of the universe. But point is you only dream what you know and everyone in your dream you know.
