hey guys, im just wondering what all you have to say on this.
Have you ever had a dream, where you meet someone, in your dream, but have never met them in real life? I keep having dreams with all complete strangers in my waking life, but i know them very well in my dreaming life. I am so confused as to why im having dreams about people i have never even met before. has this happened to any of you?
You have actually seen every person that you met in your dreams. You don’t have to know the person in a personal level, it can be anyone that you’ve crossed path. For example, someone that you saw at work/school or bus/train/metro, or at a store. If I believe correctly, the human brain is unable to create a new face/someone you’ve never seen before.
I’ve met her. I don’t remember when I made my post, but I met the girl in my dream and we’ve been together now for five months. Every obstacle we surpass together and despite all odds we stay together in love. We are both homeless living in the woods in a tent together because we can’t bear being apart. We have both admitted that we feel there is a bigger force pulling us together. Like we were sent to eachother by the universe because we are meant to be together. I couldn’t ask for a better true love than her.
Just piling on here, years after the original post, but this topic has fascinated me my whole life, and though I’ve been to HE before, I made an account specifically to comment on this topic. Taurean20, I don’t think its at all provable that the people in your dreams are all amalgams. I think for me, the eidolon of a person will often be someone I know, but they look completely different. Or their appearance and even their identity will be in constant flux. I also find that I may recognize a person as one being in a dream but on waking that it was actually another in that guise. The characters in What Dreams May Come experience a similar phenomenon. Regardless, I think some of these images are imaginary, just as many of the places in my dreams are invented. They have an underlying reality in the real world–like the submerged part of an iceberg–but in the dream their appearance is fanciful. And certainly not always am object seen in life. So how is it not possible that people can appear thus?
Finally I’d like to reply to Tobias Valdemar Knudson who hypothesized reading electrical impulses to see the content of dreams and prove whether dream faces are stolen from life. It appears scientists have done exactly that and hope to someday create a “dream VCR” — maybe I should say DVR — to record your dreams.
Yes I’ve been through those creepy dreams since last year! I don’t know why the hell I have those dreams! There just these 6 people I’ve never ever seen before in my god damn life (3 are boys 3 are girls) like tf those people are in their 20s (in my dreams) the creepy thing is that I don’t know if they alive or not?
For me, I call them nameless since I don’t really know their name! But, what I have learned is that your mind is made to be creative, yet it doesn’t have the possibility to actually create another being in your consciousness. People in your dreams are people you have seen in real life at some point. You may have never even met them, your mind could have just remembered a random face that was walking along a sidewalk while you were driving around. But, no one in a dream is made up. But yes, I do have dreams with people I don’t know as well. :)
a strange dream last night i had, i cant even interpret it this time…. mostly of my dreams are blurred face in my sixteen years of existence … its a first time i dreamt a full detailed face of a guy with mysterious personality … and i had bad impression to him in my dreams but he’s my crush (in my dream) but i dont even know him..i never met him too and i ever did have any crushes in my life.
YES! I was looking it up all night I’m only 12 so don’t judge. In my dream there is a girl and I had this dream for like 3 years I use to draw about it all the time when I Gade the dream.So I moved to Fort mcMurray ab and I met her and I moved back to Ontario the. I had the dream again and I instantly remembered her and they had the same name and look wise and everything but in a different place her friends where there and then I met them in the dream then I met all them in real life?
I’m currently in a relationship, but i had a dream that i met a guys mother. That guy, was a guy i used to talk to back in my teen years but never got a chance to see him in real life . Just last night i dreamed that i met his mother inside my home while he was outside.. Why did i dream about him??. Or meeting his mother!? My boyfriend is out of the picture.. I dont know what my dream means, can someone help???
Sorry but I really, really doubt that. I have a photographic memory and there is other things connected to it- such as everything else my mind knows. I am always aware of everything, and everything always interconnects so I can figure out every little thing i am curious of, no matter how long it takes. My photographic memory and everything else of my abilities are how i am able to remember something that i was wondering/curious about from when i was 5, and figure out the solution to that wonder many years later. Usually, these are really small details, but it’s because they’re of such small details, that every tiny detail is so crucial in making up a full bigger picture. Anyways, why i am saying all this is to try and show you why i feel i know that what you’re saying is not true. Most faces i see in dreams do not belong to anyone i have ever encountered, anywhere. But i do believe that some of them are real people from around the world. It’s not hollywood bullshit or supernatural madeup stuff if you think about it properly. There are so many crazy things that can happen in our dream that could never in our real life here. And, just like that, it is very possible that one of those crazy things is that a lot of the people and things you see are actually existent in the world, but not necessarily where you are. Therefore, you wouldn’t have been able to see it in real life. Also, you can try to pass it off as imagination once again, but there’s no doubting that there are symbolisms in your dreams where you can see, even if they’re not exactly the same faces or places youve seen in real life, they’re metaphors of what youve experienced or will experience/encounter. So yeah there is so much to learn from dreams if you just stay aware. Continuously observe and realise. Try it in your next line of dreams, and see what you realise when you wake up ! :)
Hoax but super interesting.
This is so true. Especially the part where you talk about the universe, and time. I have always always felt a lot of those things to be true, it’s just that I didn’t have enough, tangible, “proof” of it in order to be able to fully justify the reasons for its existence. But i definitely believe it to be true and i wish people who deny it without even properly thinking about it would try and think of it from several different perspectives, first. I actually think i know that it is true, but it’s only because it’s too complicated for the majority of humans yet that I can’t say it with 100% confidence lol there is a lot more to the world than just science, which is why a lot of people rely on spirituality. That is the other end of the world from science. Atheists need to realise that we need both in order to be able to fully unravel the mysteries of the world.
