I had similar premonitions, but they’d usually only be an hour or two before they happened.
Wow! That still is amazing.
I had a lot of those feelings in my teens, I’d usually have a dream I’d obsess about for a while and when it was almost forgotten, reality would come really close to it. I used to think it was just my brain considering lots of normal possibilities in boring daily routines, specially since it could be months before they’d happened like in the dream, though one really freaked me out.
I dreamt my entire class was in a science lab, one that I had never seen or been to. This was just after I changed schools and I no longer was supposed to have had any classes in a lab since I was doing arts. And lo and behold, on one of the last days of school before we went to uni, we gathered in the only empty and available room at that time just to do a last get together, the lab, and it was exactly like in my dreams. That’s the only one I never had a solid explanation for.
That’s amazing how that turned out! There was no way anyone could have predicted that!
I still get them, but they were way more prevalent when I was younger, to the point where I thought I was going absolutely nuts
I wonder why it wears off as you get older…?
Because you’re taught to conform :-/
There’s also prepubescent angst. That’s why most poltergeist phenomena are associated with pre-teens
I guess so…
Here, check this out:
Conform? That’s odd. I had déjà vu events all through high school, and occasionally into my 20′s. But I discovered that they only occurred when my life was most stable. When I was most conforming to the world around me, you might say. I look forward to my 60′s when I might just get my premonitions back.
Wow. I am shocked by how many people had the same experience, but in totally different ways!
Your comic has one very nice quality – it easily builds a community around it and encourages people to share their memories and personal differences.( In my case – very big differences: another continent, another income level, another timeline and plus I grew up somewhere that can`t be called ‘first world’* cough*) Maybe it is not perfect but today I realized that I`d rather buy your book than Skadi one.
Well thank you so much! I am very honored that you are following Analog Age! Please share and help spread the word.
My mom get prophetic dreams as a child, only made worst by great tragedies. I never inherited that ability. But in school, I used to be an empath – sensing everyone around me (even beyond thick walls) and picking up their emotions. I hated being around a lot of strongly emotional people – especially when girls got on the rag! Thankfully, I learned to shut it off!
Empath huh? I’m sure the girls were happy that you shut it off.
The sad thing is that these ‘weird’ phenomena are much more common than one thinks.
It’s just that we are all afraid of sharing those experiences, for fear of ridicule.
This still happens to me!
You are lucky, this wore off years ago for me.
I’m not sure who’s the lucky one, since one can easily become obsessed with the precogs.
Quantum physics still holds many mysteries. It’s just a shame that whenever anything is unexplainable, the most outlandish explanations are leapt to, discrediting the entire phenomenon as a result.
Pfft, science! :)
I’ve never even experienced déja vu. :(
It’s a very very strange feeling.
I’ve had a few things like these, most often in dreams. However, I wouldn’t know that these were premonitions until they actually happened: life would be carrying on as normal, then for one brief moment I would see something that I distinctly remembered dreaming about some time before, then life would continue on again. The events would also be pretty mundane, like two particular people walking across a classroom. What amuses me is that there is absolutely no way to scientifically test and verify them, and all you have is people’s testimony that such an event ever occurred.
This is exactly what happened to me, and all you can do is take my word for it:)
I had this happen all the time when I was younger. I would dream some inane that was very vivid and life like with full sensations, just everyday stuff. Then the next day, a week, or a month or more all the events would unfold 100% they did in the dream. I came up with the conclusion that time is passing is merely a personal perception and all events have already taken place.
I once had a dream of myself trying to change the events in my dream. I was walking down steps outside in a place called Asilomar Conference Grounds when another kid came up from behind and dumped fall leaves on my head. Months later It happened exactly as in my dream and I tried to change the event once I recognized it from my dreams but the changes were part of my dream.
There is much that is unexplainable.
Wow! Freaky! That’s a great theory! They even say if the universe is contracting that time could be going backwards and we just perceive it going forwards. That means that those dreams of yours actually are an echo of past event!
Of course, actually perceiving an event indicates an impartial perspective, meaning that we’re merely seeing the “echo” of things which are LIKELY to occur, and which can still be changed. Simply observing something changes both your own line of thought and the thing you’re observing. It’s possible that these “premonitions” occur all the time, and we simply don’t often notice them because we usually deviate from the course of events which would lead to us to witnessing them, meaning we’re actually far more psychic than we think.
Holy crap, common feature buddies! I don’t know why I figured I was the only one. It drives me crazy because it still happens to me at 25. It’s always something I dream, but it doesn’t happen sometime for weeks, sometimes months later. The funniest I had last year was one dealing with work. I work retail, and we were having the hardest time finding a UPC for an item. I dreamed that I went to a random rack, found the item, and poof. I forgot about the dream until a week later when we’re working again on figuring that item out (inventory was a week away), decided to go to the rounder I found in in the dream, and sure enough there it is. So strange. But for the most part, I have no idea or recollection of the dreams until that distinct moment when they happen.
This is also the reason I make sure to tell someone all of my bad dreams, I’m still convinced if I tell someone about all the details of a dream where I die, it won’t happen like that.
Seriously Gabe, this comic has grown on me so much. It’s a total joy to read and relate to!
Thank you so much! These last couple comics were a big surprise to me, never thought people would connect as much as they did!
Wow, your story is awesome! I think telling people about your bad dreams is a great idea! Better safe than sorry :)
The most likely explanation for this is your brain’s neurological systems exhibiting an overlap between short-term and long-term memory functions. In other word, your brain tricks yourself into thinking you remembered something happening before, but it really didn’t. That said, keeping a dream journal of some sort would go a long way in trying to prove that you were really having premonitions of some sort.
I heard that too. It might explain deja-vu, but this was really different. I would wak up and try to make sense f the image, then the next day, sure enough, it was that moment.
The way it’s portrayed in this comic isn’t exactly how it would happen, the actual predicted moment would actually pass then I would react a minute or two later.
I get really bad cases of deja vu sometimes. Maybe we are forced to continue to live our lives over and over until we get it “right”
Big, I hope that isn’t the case! It would belikebeing held back a grade I school
I still do this once and a while.
