Have you ever dreamt of this man?
If not - you're actually one in a small minority.
In January 2006, in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist drew the face of this man, explaining that he had recently been appearing in her dreams. The woman swears that she has never met this man in her life, yet in her dreams, on more than one occasion, he gives her advice on her private life. The drawing is forgotten about until a few days later when another patient spots the drawing on the psychiatrists desk and claims that he has also been appearing in her dreams too. Again, he claims he has never met this man before. The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues and within a few months he discovers that four patients also claim to recognize this man as a frequent presence in their dreams. All of the patients simply refer to him as 'this man'.
Since then over 2000 - and possibly more - people have claimed to have seen this man in their dreams. No one knows why. No one knows who this man is - or even if this man exists as a real person. There is no common trait or ascertained relation among those who dream of this man either. Yet, 'this man' is known to appear in thousands of peoples dreams for no apparent reason.
There are many different theories to as of why there is a mysteriously recurring presence of this man in the dreams of people who are not related in anyway. Some of these include that his man is the image of Creator - aka one of the forms that God manifests himself today. Another theory is that this man is a real person who can enter peoples dreams by means of psychological skills. Others believe that behind this man there is a mental conditioning plan developed by a major corporation.
The website www.thisman.org is a website that was set up to help discover who else has dreamed of this man and to understand who he is and why he appears in his dreams. On it you can also find some history about it (most of which I've nicked and put here!) and more.
I love spooky stuff like this and in all honestly just the image of this man freaks me out so I'm glad he's never been in my dreams. Nonetheless it is extremely interesting! Let me know if any of you have ever dreamt of 'this man'!
