You don't need psychic powers to see the future, roll a ball across your desk and you can tell fairly easily that it's going to fall off the end, unless your desk is a complete tip. Society and the world at large are just very complex collections of balls rolling across a particularly large table; we can predict the future to a large degree just by calculating the forces that are already in action. Perhaps dreams that seem to predict the future are simply unconscious reasoning based upon our environment and our understanding of it.

no, they can't see situations, I don't mean you have a brief remembrance of a situation, I have absolutely perfect, precise visions of it. I see the same strangers faces and all of that.

It may simply be the case that your brain produces a lot of information while you sleep and you eventually hit on a soloution. That and the reconstructive nature of memory.

Tycoon;4052204So, we all dream, every night, for approximately two to three hours (assuming you get a good nights sleep). Some people remember their dreams well, others don't recall them at all, and some remember bits and pieces. Anyway, I was reading up on some paranormal websites earlier, and came across an article about dreams. Please see: Psychic Readings - Psychic Dreams It says here, that when we sleep, we go into a form of 'psychic mode', and within our dreaming, can on occasion see the future (this is what that De Ja Vu is all about). Those who have experienced De Ja Vu will know, that they do something, or see something that they swear they've seen or done before... This apparently is you doing or seeing something that you have already witnessed in a dream.

That has happened to me countless times. It just happened to me yesterday if I recall correctly.

I guess I'm pretty much the only one who thinks that déja vu is just experiences that have been pulled out of your subconscious mind by your dreams, or brought to the surface because of a striking similarity to what you currently see or experience?

I once Dreamed I'd fall down the stairs when I was 5 the next morning I fell down the stairs

Sux to be you.

I get deja vu a lot.

I pass it off as a trick of the mind, but still...

... meh. I just like things to be proven and laid out to me, that's all.

So do I. That's why I don't believe in psychics.

I don't think it is completely possible to know since you cannot know what happens when someone dreams, you can only take their word for it. I think Psychics are just people desperate for money.....

You can study neural patterns and compare those with conscious, actively thinking people.

Our neuroscience is still quite some way off of being able to say exactly what those patterns mean in anything other than the most general terms.
