In this world there could be a copy of yourself making different decisions and seeing places that somehow later manifest themselves in your dreams.
For thousands of years people have wondered about the meaning of dreams. Why do some people dream about future events? Why are some dreams full of hidden meaning?
Can some of our dreams be glimpses of events taking place in an alternate reality, a parallel Universe?
Our ancestors were as curious about dreams as modern scientists are today. Ancient Greeks and Romans believed dreams provided messages from the gods. In ancient China people treated dreams as a way to visit the world of dead. Ancient Egyptians were convinced that those who could interpret dream possessed special powers.
Many Native American tribes and Mexican civilizations believed dreams were a different world we visit when we sleep.
The word “dream” comes from an old word in English that means “joy” and “music.”
Today we know that dreams are often expressions of thoughts, feelings and events that pass through our mind while we are sleeping.
Dreams can be in color and include all the senses – smells, sounds, sights, tastes and things we touch. We know more about the science of dreaming because researchers can take pictures of people’s brains while they are sleeping.
Over the years scientists have learned a lot about dreams, but there are still many things that remain unknown.
We will elaborate more on the subject and raise the idea that some of our most mysterious and special dreams could be glimpses from invisible parallel worlds that exist next to our own reality.
For almost a hundred years science has been haunted by a dark secret: that there might be mysterious hidden worlds beyond our human senses.
Mystics had long claimed there were such places. They were, they said, full of ghosts and spirits. The last thing science wanted was to be associated with such s uperstition, but ever since the 1920s physicists have been trying to make sense of an uncomfortable discovery. When they tried to pinpoint the exact location of atomic particles like electrons they found it was utterly impossible. They had no single location and this is one of the reasons why scientists are becoming more and more interested in the possible existence of parallel worlds.
The only explanation which anyone could come up with is that the particles don’t just exist in our Universe. They flit into existence in other universes, too and there are an infinite number of these parallel universes, all of them slightly different.
In effect, there’s a parallel universe in which Napoleon won the Battle of Waterloo. In another the British Empire held on to its American colony.
In one you were never born.
