Time travel of the Mind
Another way of way to look at time-travel paradoxes is that you are traveling through time constantly. You probably are asking yourself what is she talking about. Right? Well, it isn’t a jump through time but rather a mind thing. Travel to the future is called precognition or “knowledge of future events before they happen”. People have told psychologists about dreams of the future. Don’t believe me? Here are some examples:
~As a child Mrs. Appleton had visions at bedtime of a boy in a sailor suit. He was holding a tomato plant on a roof. After her mother died and she went to an orphanage she never saw it again. After she had been married 15 years, her husband showed her pictures of his childhood. She hadn’t seen any photos of him as a child she took great interest in them. She then saw the boy in the sailor suit from her visions as a child. Had she seen her husband as a child or was it a coincidence?
~ This one happened over a shorter period of time happened to an
air-conditioning contractor in Idaho. One
night he dreamed that he was working all night in a hardware store. As the sun
came up, he. picked up his toolbox and walked toward the front of the store
where the sunlight was streaming through the plate-glass windows. When he
reached the front door, he turned around and looked at the rear of the store.
There he saw two large air conditioners hanging from the ceiling. When he woke
up, he remembered his dream because, as a person who installed air conditioners,
he had never seen any hang from the ceiling.
Three weeks later, his dream began to
come true. The owner of a hardware store asked him to install two air
conditioners. Because there was no floor space available, they would have to
hang from the ceiling. What's more, so that the installation wouldn't disrupt
business, they would have to be installed at night. The night that he installed
the units, the man finished around 5 A.M. He picked up his toolbox and walked to
the front door, where he saw bright sunlight illuminating the store. He glanced
back at the store and saw the two air conditioners suspended from the ceiling.
He was chilled by the knowledge that three weeks earlier he had somehow
visualized everything that happened that night.
~ An author wrote about a girl named Pat. When she was 13 she dreamed about a person at the bottom of a nearby lake. When she told her mother she said it was nonsense. That afternoon her mother yelled at her because her cousin, an older woman with failing eyesight, had drowned that day. She was walking around the lake and stepped on some algae thinking it was grass. Her mother was saying her dream had caused the tragedy instead of just picturing it.
