You know this really screws me up- when you dream about things before they actually happen. It’s the most bizzare thing in the world someone tell me that this isn’t real. I mean they’re just dreams right? I have no doubt in my mind that this is connected to schizophrenia but I’ve come up with a weird theory that it’s also part of the split mind using math to calculate the future which is derived from paranoia and apprehension. Since I’m really fond of studying math and programming. It’s no doubt not right- but I can’t help but thinking that while I’m ill it’s still possibly happening (this phenomena).
Well, you summed it up perfect in the title of this thread, right? The key word is “delusions”. I’ve heard other people besides people with schizophrenia claim that their dreams predict the future. The concept is nothing new; it’s been around for centuries. I would like to see scientific proof. I classify it under other unproven phenomena like psychics, ESP, telekenisis, mind reading, fortune telling, palm reading etc. It’s stuff people swear by but offer no good proof. It’s good parlor tricks but doesn’t stand up to professional, scientific examination. I probably won’t change anybodies mind but this is something to think about.
Sometimes a dream is too real and too detailed that it makes me think I’m having one of those prophetic dreams.
When things happen and I feel that out of body deja vu I do get a bit freaked out. Sometimes I just ride it out…
other times I might obsess on ways to not make the dreams come true… like go a different way to work… or buy something different… do something different in my day so that the dream doesn’t come true.
Also… if the prediction is too vague… I have to let it go… other wise every little thing will make me think it’s part of what I was predicting. The worst was “something bad might happen to someone I know”
Stuff like that will snag me all the time… but when specific stuff comes true… I just have to hold on and ride it out.
