Precognition and Premonition- Can we really foresee the Future?
Precognition and Premonition
Precognition definition - Knowledge of an event before it occurs.
For thousands of years mankind has been foretelling the future. Kings and Queens have, throughout history, always had a seer or a Shaman by their side to tell them whether they will win a battle, or scry with mirrors or water to let them know who was the best match in marriage. Through dream interpretation or reading the cards they have foretold the future. But what does it mean exactly?
Precognition is the ability to see into the future. But how could this be possible? Surely the future is something Out There that hasn't happened yet.
Or is it? Quantum Physicists and Scientists have been studying different ideas for a while now, and some are beginning to believe that actually, instead of Time being in a straight line from this moment to the next, they now think that maybe it is actually all happened at once and we are just at a certain point within that time. Without going into the physics of it all, this means that when we look at the clock and it says 12 o-clock, we know that in 5 minutes it will be five past the hour. On the other hand, if Time has happened all at once, then, in theory we should be able to 'see' the past and the future if we could possibly make a machine that would allow us to tap into this 'Timescape'.
So why do we see the Future?
There have been many reports over the years, in newspapers and magazines, of people, usually well educated intelligent human beings, who have stated that they have seen the future. They not only claim to have seen future events, but have in fact written them down. Some people actually send these premonitions or precognitions to the Psychic Research Society, or even store them in their bank, to prove to the world that they were telling the truth. So, how can this be? And why doesn't it happen to everybody?
I believe that we can all do this. How many times have you thought about somebody, only to see them a few hours later? Maybe that is telepathy. Or is it?
That is just an example, but if we want to study this properly, then we have to rule out other ideas, whether they are psychic ideas or everyday occurrences. So, to predict seeing a friend we will say it is telepathy.
But what happens if you dream about an Earthquake taking place in Mexico, on the 5th of January 2012, and then it happened? How on earth would you explain that? Was it coincidence. Surely not, especially if you have the day and time exactly right.
No need for a Chrystal Ball!
The trouble is, unless you actually document your dreams, or even day dreams, when the incident occurs you may actually have de'ja vu. We have all had this occurrence at some time or another. We feel that we have been to a particular City or building before. In fact we are so certain, we then go on to believe it must involve reincarnation. We know we haven't visited that place in this lifetime, so therefore it must have happened in a previous lifetime. Scientists now believe that this happens because of how our brain works. Evidently if we see something for the first time, chemicals in the brain can actually make us 'see' it a second time. Therefore we believe that we have been there before.
But then again, that can only explain the fact that you think you recognise the place. It doesn't explain the fact that, how on earth did I know there was a room at the back of the building painted pink?! But I am getting off the subject!
True stories of premonitions

Precognition or Imagination?
Unless this subject is studied more, we can only guess at how accurate it actually is. I know that, even though I am a sceptical person, and I am prone to dissecting every bit of information that I cannot understand, and even more so, making sure that it has a scientific explanation, I am aware of the fact that this has happened to me. A lot.
Years ago, I fell asleep and went straight into a dream concerning an aeroplane. I remember sitting in one of the seats and being aware of the fact that everybody on board was speaking Russian. This was proved even more so by the fact that the passengers were all wearing Russian style hats. I remember looking out of the plane window and seeing a hot desert beneath me. Suddenly there was an almighty bang and, when I looked up I saw a fireball shooting towards me down the aisle of the plane. The heat hit me first, and in a panic, I woke up. After getting a drink of water, I went back to sleep, only to discover the fact that I was still in exactly the same place in the dream. I remember floating outside of the plane, I am not sure if I had been thrown out, or I was encountering an out of body experience. This was followed by a surreal episode of being inside a white marble room, with very bright glowing pillars surrounding me. The victims of the plane crash were sitting on chairs facing big white tables. It looked lovely and bright, but I couldn't see where the light was coming from. It was just like being in a startlingly pure light Cathedral. I remember seeing a man, who came up to me and said, 'You can go home now, you have helped them come over, thank you'. Was that Heaven? Who knows, that's another story. But then I woke. This was on a Wednesday night.
The following week I was watching TV, and to my horror, I saw on the News that an aeroplane had blown up over Syria. It was Russian, and all on board had been killed by a fireball that was caused by the explosion ripping through the plane. This was exactly a week after my dream.
Another time, me and my friend were waiting for a bus to take us to the next town. She was in a hurry, and I turned around and said 'I don't know why you are hurrying, the bus will break down up by that corner of the street, and we will have to wait for another one'. When the bus stopped and we boarded, my friend laughed and said, 'see? we are fine'. Next second, at the exact corner, the bus came to a grinding halt and we had to change buses! In fact this particular friend was extremely used to my premonitions and in the end, nothing I did or said surprised her!
My main dream or precognition that is just coming true!
This one is going to astound you. But it is totally and completely true to such an extent even I am gobsmacked!
For the last twenty years I have had a reacurring dream. This dream has been so dominant in my mind that twenty years ago, after dreaming over and over the same thing, I actually got the incident published in a psychic magazine. I even received a letter afterwards from a lady who relayed her own story to me concerning a similar dream.
In my dream I am travelling to a different Country in the UK. I wasn't sure whether I was heading towards Scotland or Wales. I am in a Coach and I know that the town or City I am going too, is going to become part of my life. I am never sure if I live there or are just visiting.
The town is by the ocean, and is dominated by a great Castle. To the left of the castle is the old part of town, mainly grey slate coloured buildings, and the new town was farther back. I am aware of visiting and staying with somebody, but I never see who it is. The town becomes so familiar to me that I know it as much as the town that I really live in. I know the streets, the layout of the Castle, and even the different events that go on. This dream has taken over my night for 20 years.
Recently my son has met a girl online. They have been 'dating' for about five months now. She has invited my son to stay with her, and it looks like they will eventually live together.
Caernarfon Gwynedd North Wales.
By the sea. Dominated by a Huge Castle! What more can I say? This is still the beginning. Is it the same place? Will it be the town that I have dreamt about for the last 20 years? Who knows. But I can't wait to find out!
Oh, I forgot to say, he will be travelling by coach!
So Where does this leave us?
In Einsteins Theory of Special Relativity, Einstein believed that time was not as human beings see it. He believed that time could be stretched or shrunk, all depending on whether you were going very fast or very slow. This was his main study into time travel. Einstein was sure that one day it would be physically possible to travel into the future or the past. Surely the only way that this is possible is if Time as we know it is completely wrong. We could travel backwards or forwards in time only if it had happened all at once. Of course there is the other theory that if we did travel through time, then we would not actually travel back to 'our' time, but another dimension that was either behind us, or in front of us in time. But once again, that's another story!
So taking into consideration all the details of scientists, and seers, scientists who study and only believe when they can see the proof in front of them, and seers who can actually see the future without any proof, where does this leave us?
All I can say is that, Time, like everything else in the Universe, is a strange and tantalising fact. The only problem is that we don't know what that fact is! Maybe one day we will find out. And that day will be wondrous indeed!
So, What do you think?
Is this just a coincidence? What about the plane crash? Or even the bus? These are just a few experiences that I have had. Maybe it is all in my mind. But can that be true of the many other people who have had this experience? Will we ever know the truth about Precognition. I don't know.
HAVE YOU EVER EXPERIENCED PRECOGNITION? IF SO, WHAT DO YOU THINK IT IS? I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOUR STORY.
