I was wondering if someone could answer a question about my dreams:
I know there are lucid dreams and precognitive dreams, but what if you're dreaming of the past? I mean before you were even born?
I had a few dreams over the past couple of months that all had to do with the same thing: Warsaw during WWII. In my dreams I kept seeing this old tall building that looked very different from buildings around it. I saw all the details of this place in each of these dreams and finally I told my dad about these dreams. He told me he actually knew which building this must have been (he lived in Warsaw when he was young). And sure enough, when I saw the pictures of this building I knew it was the one. The weird thing is, the way it looked in my dreams was the way it looked during WWII. And, the surrounding area was the way it looked right before WWII. Down to the very last detail. For example, I told my dad I ran past the building to what looked kind of like a water fountain or some small body of water. My dad said that didn't really make sense since there is no water around the area there. A few days later he sent me an email titled “you're not going to believe this” and in that email was a photo of a small water reservoir for fire fighters that was EXACTLY where I described it before the war broke out. After the war there was no longer a reservoir there.
Why am I having dreams about some place that existed over 40 years before I was even BORN? I've never experienced anything like this before and it's really weird.
Does anyone know why this is? Is there a name for dreams like this?
