    Dream Precognition

    Is there is any psychology behind such a thing?

    I do have dreams about future events, not often, but they can occur, for 20 seconds the moment can last. I have also known others to have such dreams as well. You obviously don't know that it is a future event, until it happens... There has to be some scientific explanation behind this.

    Is there is any psychology behind such a thing?
    Depends on how you define "psychology."

    I do know the right hemisphere is implicated in more "woowoo" things, like intuition and emotion and knowing something without logical explanations for knowing it.

    I'm intuitive (not iNtuitive, intuitive), and my right hemisphere is more active than it tends to be in a more analytical person. Those who are more analytical in waking consciousness still activate the right hemisphere during dreamtime. Symbolism is also part of the right hemisphere's purview.

    Other than that, the explanations I can offer will not fit mainstream psychology unless you count the mystical workings of C.G. Jung ;)

    Well if not psychological, then the science behind it? I may have posted it in the wrong section. But either way, I would like something to make sense to why such an experience may occur.

    Again, my explanations may not fit what you want (science as truth or science as objective evidence and clinical testing?). I'm an intuitive; people have paid me to apply my ability for various concerns they have. My ability isn't precognitive but that's one form this can take.

    And though my ability isn't precognitive or predictive, I do approach something like that... for events that are about to happen, anywhere from three days away to two hours away. Things father down the timeline, not so much. If I remembered my dreams, it's quite possible I would experience this as well. I choose not to remember my dreams in waking consciousness though.

    My basic explanation is that you are tapping into the unconscious mind (which accesses a greater level of knowledge than the conscious mind has "room" to access at one point in time), and bringing information to the level of the conscious mind.

    Why? There may well be, but why does there have to be?
    It is a mystery. As in mystical. You could choose to bask in the mystery, or risk wrecking it by analysis.

    @sparkles is right on with the Jung reference. Check out his notion of synchronicity if you haven't done so already.

    For people experience precognition, it is not mystical science fiction, but hard fact that the rules of "causal closure" do not apply to all aspects of reality. The trouble of talking about this is that it really doesn't fit into science at all as most fields of science, if not all, are founded on the principles of causal closure. For precognition to occur, "now" and "then" collapse into a single entity. In the case of clairvoyance, the distinction between "here" and "there" disintegrates. For telepathy, the distinction between "me" and "you" fails. Each of these suggests one of two things, either a.) there are elements of reality that we just don't understand that still hold to causal closure or b.) there are subtle, non-manifest aspects of reality where 1 + 1 = 1, or things can share "ontological coincidence." My suspicion that it is some odd combination of a and b.

    Check out the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The last third of them are devoted to explaining what is possible when the mind achieves a state of one-pointed unity or samadhi. In this state, essentially, all of the facilities of consciousness that have been inculcated with the rules of the material world cease and the mind is open to this more subtle dimension of existence. Some people are born with a sensitivity to this already while some can work their way up to it. Some say that if you don't start experiencing this sort of thing, you aren't really meditating.

    Along the lines of "science" the closest systematization I can think of that addresses this is the Samkhya/Yoga system of Hinduism. Also, Motoyama is a fantastic modern guru/psychic/scientist/author that writes extensively on this. You may want to check out his Towards a Superconsciousness as it addresses many of these issues.

    I started an older thread about this article and I think it might have some information on this topic - Why We Dream: Real Reasons Revealed | LiveScience

    Are you familiar with Quantum Physics? I was just looking for something I read recently that was refering to time being like a pool of water rather than a linear scale & explaining intuitive experiences based on this, but I can't find it now. Here's a link that may be helpful, though:

    I don't want to sound stupid, but just to make sure I got the reasoning. Is the article on about different time dimensions?

    But this is a very article.

    Not at all. It's breaks down the different types of precognitive dreams & touches on Quantum Mechanics & how it relates to them. If I find what I was reading before I will post it for you too.
