That works for me.hypnagogue said:I'm not challenging that idea. All I'm saying is that our failure to reproduce 'prophetic' dreams (or most psi phenomena in general) does not amount to evidence against such phenomena, just a lack of a certain kind of evidence for them.
yes, perhaps more generally when something relatively important will happen.Overdose said:Like i siad earlier i find it interesting that people i speak to and have heard from mostly only seem to have premonitions when their life may be in danger. Its like an in built early warning system thats evolved over time.
If I had $1200 in a van, I'd be real surprised if I didn't dream about it being stolen.mikesvenson said:This past summer, I had a re-occurring dream: I catch thieves breaking into my van. While trying to stop them, I manage to save a bag of $1200 that was inside the van.

sigh, poor me. i did not know that 'time' existed for the entire universe, including my sub-conscious and spritual self. i am such a dummy!loseyourname said:Whatcha talkin' about, drunk? Do you mean that since you can have a dream in which days pass in the dream, when in reality, it's only been a couple of hours, that when you dream, your consciousness is escaping time. Ignoring the fact that nothing in either science or experience can really tell us whether or not that is possible or what the consequences would be, I don't see how you would then be able to re-enter time at a later date, then come back out and re-enter at the original earlier date. That implies that all of time already exists, which would fly in the face of your other ideas regarding free will. Now I know you've postulated that there are infinite possible futures, and we simply choose which one we will move into when we take any action, but if this is the case, and your consciousness simply splipped into one of these futures while you were dreaming, your prognostication would only have a 1 in infinity chance of being correct.
By the way, hyp, the mentor in the Relativity forum says you're off your rocker for suggesting that the relativity of simultaneity allows for prognostication. Maybe if one of you is moving close to the speed of light, you can see a couple of seconds into someone's future. You wouldn't be able to communicate what you saw, but it's interesting anyway.
Energy, and everything else in the universe is subject to time. In order to experience anything, there must be a certain time frame in which we experience it.it would get messy if we tried to define our greater reality as it is beyond our total comprehension. can energy experience time? or does it experience different states? the chair i am sitting on is energy, condensed or coalesced energy.
Your link is dead.ChaosTheory said:I was searching for psychic/clairvoyant stuff, and here I am. Odd that I'm also a M.E. and possibly Physics major. :)
Anyway, here's a link that I just discovered, which may give believers and non-believers something to check out.
Sorry to interrupt your little conversation with loseyourname. You seem to be a dualist. Well, there is nothing bad about that, except that being one simply undermines the whole foundation of your argument. The only problem that I have with your argument is that if there were an aspect of you that existed outside time, it would still be physical since there is originally no causal and clarifying relation between physical and non-physical.olde drunk said:the aspect of me that is human requires time to process data. there is also an eternal aspect of myself that exists in a timeless universe; probably, non physical.

we are one, with many aspects or lives. i view my greater self as a tree with each branch or even each leaf as an incarnation in this or any world. this greater self is an energy essence learning to master it's powers and abilities.
hey, look, no one has been able to explain to a scientific certainty what is really happening. i have pieced together this view because it works for me. fortunately, as i move along this line of thinking more and more of reality makes more sense to me. my dreams are limited and i do not spend much time sorting them or reaching for meaning.
i do however, like the idea that we are capable of so much more than we practice. look at what conventional medicine has done to OD's or is it DO's. they had a discipline that worked and it has been lost since they have been absorbed into the AMA definition of medicine. they did this to be accepted by government - business authorities.
my views promote a limitless creative enviornment for myself. (subject to the self-imposed limits for this human experience). now i will pay a little more attention to my dreams to see if i can add an anecdote to this thread.
I see an obvious coincidence there. If my father had a heart attack (and survived), my mother would dream about his impending death for years before getting over it.Imparcticle said:The day before my dad died, my mom had a dream that his time had come. He'd had a heart attack 2 weeks before, and was getting better (so the doctors said). Then one night, my mom dreamt that the doctors, dressed in pure white, where praying over him. As they did so, he was suddenly engulfed in light. Then he was gone, and my mom knew he was going to pass away.
Personally, I'm a skeptic of psuedoscience and stuff like that just because there is no credible evidence that I've ever heard of to support it. But that dream I just mentioned is one that compells me. I have my own theory, but it probably doesn't make sense....
