A couple of years ago I had a rather strange dream. I was in an American football stadium and someone in the audiance telepathically communicated to me “we are being invaded by aliens”. Together with some other people that I didn’t know, I left the stadium. One of the persons that walked besides me kept asking “what do they want?”. I looked to the sky and I saw an airplane (not unusual as this is a recurring element in my science fiction like dreams). Moments later the airplane crashed with a big bang and I woke up with a “this is weird” feeling.
renting a movie
Two days later I went to the dvd renting place (shortly after all these rental places went bankrupt because of the internet) and I rented the movie “The fifth wave”. When I watched the movie I was amazed by how much this movie was like my dream:
- alien invasion;
- people becoming aware of the invasion in an american football stadium (not telepathically but by looking at their smart phones);
- airplane falling from the sky (the aliens used an electric shockwave as means of attack);
- constant question being asked: “what do they want?”.
The most down to earth explanation is obviously that I must have seen the movie trailer, but I have some problems with this explanation. I am really good at remembering trailers and I don’t remember having seen this trailer at all. And the part of the American footbal stadium scene wasn’t in the trailer. As a strange sidenote: some of the trailer parts are not even in the real movie.
My second explanation I thought of was, that possibly a new kind of telepathic marketing tool is being used, which could also explain why I imagined the telepatic communication in the American footbal stadium in my dream. Of course I googled to see if other people had dreamed about this movie, but I didn’t find anything.
I would like to know if some of you had a simular experience and perhaps if you could give a me a plausible explanation of mine.
