Have you ever had a dream that other people have dreamed about too? I remember I had a dream that took place outside a big old house. Its driveway covered a vast amount of space so as to become independent from the rest of the houses in the street. At first I walked around the house, found a door on one of the walls, opened it, and went inside. I made my way through a couple of rooms, and then returned outside for another reason. The dream continued for a couple of minutes, and after that I woke up.
Now, this is where it gets interesting; days later I talked about this dream to some people from my family and friends, and two of them reported having a similar dream. Upon relaying to me the events of their dream, it appeared as if we each experienced the dream from varying points of view while in it. One of them, for example, remembered being outside at the back of the house, but never went inside it, whereas in my dream I was at the front end of the house, near the entrance, and I did entered it.
Still, we each saw the same house, and our description of the surrounding area was strikingly similar as well. For example, we all saw a set of benches situated alongside near the premises of the house, along with a small plaza adjacent to it as well. Likewise, we each felt a little drawn to this particular house, as if something about it had captured our attention.
What should I make out from this dream? How do I even classify such an experience? What I don’t know is if we all had the dream in the same night or if we dreamed of the same place but on different days. Is this some kind of dream sharing experience? Have you dreamers had a similar experience? How do these things even happen?
