Are dreams for real?

 

Some of us possess natural-born sixth sense with premonitions

of things to come, which many others otherwise deem sheerly

coincidental. Whether the dream of an earthquake actualizing days

after would turn out to be a hunch, an accident, or, simply, a dream

come true, there is no need to judge. Then again, if the premonition

be correct, would the dreamer have been capable of preventing the

quake or reducing casualties in its occurrence? If negative and if

all but from a single hunch, call it coincidental and let it pass.
