Ep.11: Eric Wargo – Dreamwork: Remembering the Future

Available on Apple PodcastsSpotify and YouTube.

Could our dreams actually be pieces of our future getting imprinted in our functional memory? Could synchronicities be due to precognition rather than some sort of « metaphysical messaging »? Are you sure you only exist as a story carved in the past and as a focal point on an illusive present? Dr Eric Wargo joins us in this episode to blow the lid off of our most tightly held convictions about the passage of time.
