It’s happened to most people at least once. You have a dream. You might dismiss it or find it funny but a day or week pass by and happening before your very eyes is the exact dream you just had. Freaky stuff? Or is it just the laws of physics working itself out? You may dismiss some of these dreams as mere coincidences but some are so accurate and improbable that you cannot help but to wonder if the true nature of time and your mind are closely coupled. To dive deeper into the mechanics of our dreams, we looked Dr. Eric Amidi’s(a Particle Physicist and a Certified Hypnotist) fascinating overview of the Collage Theory of Time. Dr. Eric Amidi explains, physics has made great strides in explaining the nature of time measurement, but the nature of time itself remains to be quite the mystery to science. In fact, one of the reasons that quantum mechanics and Einstein’s theory of gravity cannot be unified is that science does not yet have a firm understanding of time. So why is time so omnipresent that you can feel it everywhere you go, and yet it’s so elusive that you cannot put your finger on it and explain what it is? Could it be because it’s within you? Could it be because it has its roots in your psyche and not the world out there?
Can Our Dreams Explain Time?
According to Dr Eric Amidi, the events and happenings are only snapshots of our lives. A “collage” if you will, and in no particular order. Imagine that all the things that have happened and will happen in your life are laid out in a collage of snapshot pictures on a wall, but you can see only a small portion of this wall due to the limited capacity of your conscious mind. In your waking life, your logical conscious mind constantly grabs these snapshots and puts them in a logical order, one after the other. This is what you perceive as being the passing of time. However Dr. Eric Amidi’s Collage Theory Of Time also explains that while you dream or when you’re in deep meditation you may see beyond now and into the future as your logical conscious mind shuts down. Your conscious mind is no longer able to categorise the events of your life into a logical order.
The above is a general theory of prophecy dreams. Can we will our dreams or can we re-arrange them in order to make them appear true? In the dream I had some 19 months ago, I neither willed it nor wished it!
The dream was not about me nor a member of my family or even a close friend. The dream was of someone well-known in Sai Baba circles. Someone I never knew.
I’d met this person, let’s call him “John”, in the darshan area of Swami’s ashram during 2008. He’d left an impression on me but other than an awareness of each other, there was no further contact. Thus, why should I dream of this person? Could this have been a “Swami dream” to point out the connection we have with one another? Swami mentioned so many times we are one, we are all connected. I suppose this dream could have been a teaching dream, as it came true some 12-13 months later. I would never have known of the dream coming true, if I had not seen a video of this person, where he appeared, as he had in my dream, on a talk show, in the USA.
I might add here that I had written down the details of my dream the morning after, told friends, also sent an email to the person concerned. Though the email was not acknowledge, I am sure it was read. (I’ve been searching for the email but i had binned it after sending.. So cannot retrace it now.. Hence why the date is vague.)
My dream was somewhere between Oct – Nov. 2011.
An acquaintance of mine was at a low point, let’s call him “John,” was distant from me on a physical level. I did not know his everyday activities. I had a dream where he appeared on a T.V. Talk show in the USA. At the time he was living in Puttaparthi or at least I think he was.The dream has to be one of the most vivid I ever remember. In this dream, he appeared on an American talk show as a guest, along with him was a famous Country and Western singer. Everyone was saying to “John,” “Oh that is big!” “Wow! that is big…” The other famous guest also repeated the same words to John. She was sitting next to him and laughing. John then got up, picked up the lady and twirled her around saying, “I am so happy. I am so happy..” The dream had a very happy feeling, as if John was really excited and pleased to be on the show and back home. It was not revealed in my dream what was so “huge.”
Dec. 2012 – John actually appeared on a T.V. talk show in America (video, on-line) discussing the renovation of the Nashville, Fairgrounds. In the video, he also talked briefly about the lady guest who had appeared in the dream. “Wow that is big,” – the words I heard in the dream – has to be the gigantic Fairgrounds Project in Tenn., currently in the planning stage.
I can only remember one other dream that was a clear prophesy and that took place when I very young..
