Yes, I respect your scepticism and your reasoning. You could be correct. However, the credibility gap remains either way. If, indeed, my particular 'precognitive dream' was a conclusion arrived at after "considering all the possibilities" - or in other words, a probablistic prediction - then it speaks of a truly astonishing power of the human mind light years beyond that with which we are familiar in day-to-day life.
