Future Sight

This morning I was dreaming that I was watching my brother make a song in GarageBand. One of the tracks was too low, even though the volume was most of the way up. “It should definitely go higher than this…” he said as he turned it up the rest of the way—

CLANG

—and a big crash of noise came out through the computer speakers. And then I woke up.

There’s construction going on on the roof here, so it’s not a surprise that there was a sudden blast of noise. What I wonder is, how did my brain know there was going to be a crash then?

John Dies at the End says that you can see a little into the future when you’re waking up. Inception would say that it’s because my brain was slowed down, and so the crash might already have begun. A CogSci major would probably say that my mind came up with the connection after the fact, since I could probably hear them working even while asleep.

Gotta say, though, this isn’t the first time a dream’s anticipated real life for me. At least, I think it’s not. Anyone else ever have this experience?
