Could be random, could have prescient aspects. I guess that might sound a bit useless, so I'll explain what I mean.
One thing I've noticed with my own dreams is that in the very rare ones that had prescient elements which later panned out in reality, I always
experienced things from within the event -- whatever it happens to be. In other words, it's not like I dream that I'm watching a news report on TV,
or seeing it from a bird-in-the-sky perspective. I'm there
and it's all happening around me. It's very real, very sequential (much more like
"real time") and doesn't have the jumping from place to place and general "weirdness" that we commonly get in dreams.
The second aspect is that usually in such cases, I cannot see myself for most of the time. I see and experience everything from a single human
perspective (ie as we would if we were videoing through a camera we're holding ourselves), but I don't often have those moments we get in dreams
where I can see myself from another perspective, as if there was another camera pointed at me and I'm able to see what it's recording.
If I do see myself (so to speak), it usually occurs after the "main" event has happened. During the event itself, it's like I'm trapped within the
individual perspective only.
Anyway, while the above is just my own observations, I'd be interested if you could elaborate a little on the perspective aspect for the dream you
had and also give your opinion as to whether it was perspectively typical for you (in your dreams) or unusual. Ditto with things like how sequential
