The Dynamics of Precognitive Dreaming

Precognitive Dreams that use Pictorial Material as Psi Targets can Provide Insight Into the Dream Image Making Process for Dreamwork and for Evaluating Some Aspects of Remote Viewing Data.

This presentation reviews several precognitive dreams from recent controlled experiments to illustrate pictorial target and dream imagery correlations.  Some previous precognitive dreams provide additional insight and include projects involving innovative targets and future news pictures.  The perceptual aspects that occur during the psi dream-target content acquisition process are considered, including basic visual, subconscious pattern recognition and memory association processes. Visual processes relate to perceived image dynamics, attractors, contrasts and fundamental elements of perception, form-constants, such as those that occur during synesthesia experiences and imagery in the art work of indigenous cultures.  Precognition concepts reviewed include J. Dunne’s “future memory” and recent retro-causation perspectives.

Insights from precognitive dreams assist in understanding and evaluating data obtained by other psi modes, including conscious state remote viewing (RV) and may be helpful for projects involving target picture selection from alternatives such as in associative remote viewing (ARV) tasks.  Distortions in the precognitive dream data may result from subconscious Memory Association Errors (MAE).  Some RV data distortions may be from a similar effect. This presentation expands the sometimes-restrictive perspective of certain approaches to psi, including remote viewing and promotes constructive dialogue on potentially diverse concepts of precognition.
