You forget the 90 things which didn't happen because, um, they didn't happen. When one of the "common things" which happens "uncommonly" happens, you go "Aha! I dreamt that only a couple of months ago! I must be able to see the future."

Last night I dreamt about people in office cubicles and one of them fell over and hurt a couple of people. (True story.) Did I "see the future"? I don't think so. Is it likely that someplace, somewhere in the next couple months some office cubicle will fall over, or a file cabinet tip over a hurt somebody? Probably. But if it doesn't happen I will forget it; it was only a dream. If it does happen (as surely it will) it won't mean "I saw the future". It'll mean spit happens - in dreams and in real life. That's all. - Goofyhoofy

That really doesn't explain how it was that I dreamed about going to the top of a tall building to see a beautiful Asian woman and that I was being chased by some old gay dude and then two hours later I saw a movie with the exact same plot.

It's the timing of the dreams that make them so amazing to me. No matter how many dreams I have that don't come true, or at least aren't true for me {but maybe are true for somebody else (holographic universe)} your explanation doesn't explain how it is that sometimes I have very specific dreams and then soon after that event happens.

I once dreamed of a bowl of slithering black eels then the next night I saw a program about Rome on the History Channel and they talked about an Emperor who fed his enemies to eels and they showed a bowl of live slithering black eels that looked exactly like the bowl of eels in my dream.
