Do you see things in your dreams, then see them in real life afterwards ?

The other day i dreamt i was seeing an old ferrari car, then the next morning i look online on a news website and i see almost the same thing on the news website. Kinda strange.

  • all the time. they're called psychic dreams. this one in particular sounds like a clairvoyant dream (as opposed to telepathic or precognitive). I've had precognitive dreams that have described future events down to specific details.

    I believe that would fall under the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon, or "frequency illusion." When we see or learn something new (or maybe not new, but something that has left an impression on us, i.e. something from a dream), our brain starts up a selective attention bias where we will subconsciously be hyper aware of any occurrences of that thing. The prevalence of the object/person hasn't actually increased, you're just more readily able to detect it when it's there.

    That happened back in 2008, it still amazes me.

    I've known several people who experience having a dream come to reality usually the following day. Seems some people have a mind or brain designed to provide that ability.

    I do not remember anything from my dreams. I just sleep and wake. I am sure I dream just no memory of it.
