In 2006, an unidentified woman in New York told her psychiatrist that a man had been reappearing in her dreams and giving her advice on her private life. But the woman had no idea who he was because she'd never actually met him in real life. So the doctor had the woman draw a sketch of the guy, which she did.
a few months later, the sketch was sitting on the doctor's desk when another patient saw it and RECOGNIZED THE MAN. But, just like before, the patient had only seen the guy in his dreams.
At that point, the psychiatrist sent the photo to a bunch of his colleagues to see if any of their patients had seen the man in their dreams too. Well guess what? A lot of them had.
In fact, since 2006, no fewer than 2,000 people from all over the world claim to have seen the same man in their dreams, who's now known simply as “This Man”.
When I read this story I was curious if it looked like the guy in my reoccurring dream. Sadly it didn't. Here is the guy that keeps showing up in my dreams.
