Science explains Prophetic Dreams
Revonsuo states that threat perception and harm avoidance lie at the heart of many dreams. When working on a dream with one or more sudden scene changes, treat each scene as a separate, but related, dream. Trying to relate it as one dream, with a logical connection between scene changes, rarely works. Also working with the entire dream as a series of related dream sequences is more revealing than working with a single segment. This produces coherent dramatizations that often portray the dreamer's conceptions and concerns in waking life. Due to the activity error and conflict monitoring function, the resultant dream stories can focus on conflict and anomaly resolution in our lives, making dreams somewhat forward looking and predictive. Thus dreams often end with a projected direction, path or solution, even if it is not always a positive one or the direction fully formed prior to waking.
