John L. Petersen, one of the world’s foremost futurists, is founder and president of the Arlington Institute. He is author of Out of the Blue: How to Anticipate Wild Cards and Big Future Surprises, Strategies for 2012, and The Road to 2015: Profiles of the Future. He has worked for National War College, the Institute for National Security Studies, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the National Security Council staff at the White House. He also serves as chairman of the Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Foundation.
Here he begins by discussing the use of dreams by futurists. He suggests that it might be useful to establish a large database of people’s dreams in order to scan it for emerging trends. To do this, one needs a methodology to interpret dream symbolism. He mentions that certain individuals seem to have dreams that are accurate depictions of future events – as if information is coming to them backwards through time. He also discusses research on precognitive remote viewing, stating that it works best over short time frames. In addition, he maintains that he has found some channeled information to be very useful in his profession. He also points out that some future development will be so dramatic that they are almost impossible for us to imagine. We may, for example, consciously control the future evolution of the human species.
