Dreaming Ahead of Time: Experiences with Precognitive Dreams, Synchronicity and Coincidence
Can we see the future in our dreams?
Does time flow in only one direction?
What constitutes a “meaningful coincidence”?
Renowned esoteric writer Gary Lachman has been recording his own precognitive dreams for forty years. In this unique and intriguing book, Lachman recounts the discovery that he dreams “ahead of time” and asserts convincingly that, in fact, we all share this extraordinary ability.
Dreaming Ahead of Time is a personal exploration of precognition, synchronicity, and coincidence, drawing on the work of thinkers such as J. W. Dunne, J. B. Priestly, and C. G. Jung. Lachman’s description and analysis of his own experience introduces readers to the uncanny power of our dreaming minds, revealing the illusion of our careful distinctions between past, present, and future.
