Last night, I dreamed that I was watching election coverage and couldn’t get a straight answer from any station regarding specific numbers of electoral votes. Then I saw an interview where the moniker bar at the bottom of the screen said George W. Bush, President-Elect. I sort of noticed it in passing as it were, within the dream. It got me wondering, duh.
I wonder what kind of stuff we miss in dreams. Stuff that our minds tell us but that still doesn’t make it through to the actual recognition stage. I could have very well gone ahead and thought the dream was only about my inability to find out who the new prez was, but all the while the info was right there in my face, waiting for me to look at it.
I’ve often thought that my dreams seem to predict the future at times. Or to put it better, when I have deja vu, I feel like I probably dreamed about it in the past and only re-realize it. So, perhaps if folks engaged and mentally recorded their dreams it would be possible to determine whether or not they contain glimpses of the unempirically observable but true.
Worded poorly, but hopefully you get the gist.
