A member asked:

Is it possible that we dream about a certain person because they are thinking about us too? is it a real telepathy?

Yes, it's possible!: Telepathy/ESP remains controversial but there are many many cases of people having clairvoyant and precognitive dreams- see http://tinyurl.com/yd8j2gmv for a good review. There have also been many scientific studies that provide evidence that telepathy is real- see http://www.collective-evolution.com/2015/08/04/5-classic-experiments-showing-extremely-significant-results-for-human-telepathy/

Coincidence: Although some people believe in telepathy or extrasensory perception, there is simply no credible scientific evidence for it. Whatever dreams you have originate in your own brain, unrelated to what any other person is thinking. Sorry if this bursts a bubble for you....
