Just recently, my friend and I had a discussion on dreams/nightmares that we've been having lately. I told him about this crazy dream that I've been having off and on here for a while. What happens is, I'm standing inside of this huge place (it looks something like a mansion). The only light that I have is what's shining through the windows, so it makes it kind of dark, because (there are no lights on in this place). It's not dark enough that I can't see what's in front of me, but it's pretty dark (it's kind of eerie). Anyway, there is this long flight of stairs leading up to a balcony. I start to climb up the extremely long staircase and when I reach the top, I walk over to the balcony and climb on top of it, stretch my arms out and free fall. (sometimes I can actually feel the wind hitting my face). The really weird thing about this dream is, I never hit the bottom, I always seem to wake up before that can even happen. I've asked several different people what they think about it and I always seem to get answers like (you might be getting ready to die) or (maybe your dream is trying to tell you something). I find these answers to be quite unnerving, "at least in my case". So my question for you today is, what do you think? Do dreams/nightmares really tell something that's going to happen or are they just dreams? I'd really like to know what your thoughts on this are, so please tell me!
