I tell people that anyone who has ever kept a dream journal for a
substantial length of time will learn that time is not what we think
it is.  In my case, I was rather shocked to find descriptions of
several people I had not /yet/ met in real life, and how we would
interact some months later.

On another occasion, I found a detailed description of events - the
date confirmed as correct per the a note that the moon was full - that
one week later neither I nor anyone else involved remembered, in a
regular journal.  Mind = blown.

None of this can or should persuade anyone but me that something
damned strange is going on with this "reality" thing.  But I was and
remain so persuaded.  Now the question is, what does it mean and what
can I do with/to/about it?  So far the only answer I get is "just be
aware that you don't know what you think you know about how reality
works."  And worse - maybe Phil Dick was right.
