Maximum Temporal Distance Between Events That Are Simultaneous in Another Frame

    There is a guy in the metaphysics forum that is claiming that the non-simultaneity of two events that are simultaneous in another reference frame allows for the possibility of prognosticatory dreams. I'd like to know the maximum distance you would be able to see into the future using this technique and how fast you would need to be moving. Can anyone tell me?

    He doesn't know what he's talking about. There is no way that the Relativity of Simultaneity can be used to predict the future.
