Extraordinary People - The Man Who Dreams the Future - Monday September 3

extraordinary people: the man who dreams the future

Five’s acclaimed documentary strand continues with more absorbing programmes exploring some remarkable tales of human experience.

Coming soon is the story of Chris Robinson –a man who believes that his dreams are a window into the future. A seemingly ordinary man, Chris lives in Dunstable with his wife, Bessie, and his three children. He works as a cleaner at a local haulage yard and gets up to ordinary things during the day. It is while he is asleep, however, that extraordinary things happen to him. Chris dreams of death and destruction, of places and events that he has never seen or experienced, and it is these dreams that have brought him attention all over the world.

Chris claims to have foreseen the terrorist attack on the twin towers in New York and the 7/7 bombings in London. In Japan, he is a huge celebrity, regularly called in to solve crimes on a major TV channel. His supporters include an American academic and an ex-US military intelligence officer –but his detractors dismiss his claims of precognition out of hand. Now, the desperate parents of a missing woman have called on Chris Robinson to help find their daughter, presumed dead after a plane crash.

Will his remarkable claims of premonitions stand up to scrutiny? Can Chris Robinson really dream the future? Professor Gary Schwartz of the University of Arizona intends to find the truth.

    Robinson is very unconvincing as an ordinary man who is using just his dreams to determine the future.
    It is made clear in the film that he has ‘7 thin cows and 7 fat cows’ symbolic type dreams and therefore does NOT clearly dream the future but must interpret his own dreams.
    He was described also as a lucid dreamer. A fully lucid dreamer does not dream in symbols. They would demand a meaning directly from their dream because they know they are dreaming.

    I would very very much appreciate it if I could be put in touch with Chris Robinson, in the hope that he would agree to treat my daughter Lindsay.

    Many thanks, sincerely,

    I believe that Chris is being shown outcomes of the past & future. He just has to figure out how to determine it, and not rely on other peoples views. I believe him as genuine. I have had my own experiences which left me with a sense of knowing. There is some spiritual energy out there that us mere humans have not been given the full picture, we get snippets to join together, while we all work together to build a picture just like a gig saw.

    With love and light, let the angels guide us through life. x

    I’ve dated a girl with similar abilities, but her dreams seemed to be more explicit, not abstract (as described by another user, as I haven’t seen the program).
    And I’m not sure she could dream “on demand” (about something specific asked by someone else or herself).

    We’re no longer together.

    She knew details of her future; and for the peculiar part:
    When shopping she was approached by a man who revealed some information about her future. The funny thing was that the given information was something she had already dreamt of before.

    I hold fond memories of her and hope she is alright…

    My name is Steve Lacey, and soon I will be holding a very controversial exhibition in March 2009. It’s contents include Prophecy and its limitations, spirituality, and the unifying of religions amongst others related topics. The exhibition will be made up of fourteen models, which begin with letters written and received along with photos of actual events before manifestation. Also, an autobiographical film script has been written, but due to the sensitivity of this topic, the timing of its release must be impeccable. All I request is a written letter of support, and your thoughts on the exhibition as a whole, or on an individual basis. All photos of these models can be forwarded to you. I would very much appreciate any input from you, or if you could attend the opening in March? Times and date’s can be sent to you. As I have found your work and research extremely helpful and very interesting, I would also like to have permission to include your Web site in my soon to be published book?

    Here is a list of all the topics of the models I have created, and I have also enclosed a copy of my exibtion in booklet form.

    1. Letters of warnings of events to happen (Photo images of events when they happen)

    2. A war model, because it was pre-warned, it now serves as a remembrance to victims.

    3. A Palestine model. This is optimism that there will be a state of Palestine.

    4. Auschwitz model. This is a tomb based model for the victims and was created to draw the balance with the Palestine model.

    5. The Rock of Truth. This is a rock with a computer embedded in it with the message ‘the past, present and future are all inter-connected.’

    6. Amnesty model. This is a metal model to show its importance (Freedom of speech and thought)

    7. The Slavery model. Abolition 2007, this is a robotic arm chained a piece of African wood.

    8. The Existence model. Explains the physical existence and spiritual exact existence.

    9. The Glass model. Shows clearly our Physical, spiritual and what we call ‘God’ the controlling agent of our existence.

    10. Colin Fry write up and photos.

    11. The Mountain Model . This is a model of the re-unification of religion.

    12. Death model. This is simply an explanation of what happens after a physical death.

    13. A Society behavioural model. Shows images of violence and depicts a corrupt society.

    14.New World Order modal.with links.(got to be careful with this one will provide links I;e Jordan Maxwell,Alex Jones,Steve Bassett,William copper, etc)

    Hi Chris,

    I watched your programme today(5th February, 2009, UK) and I am desparate to be in touch with you, can it possible?

    Chris, here is my email: mmarcianne@yahoo.com, please be in touch

    thanks

    Hello Chris!!
    i saw your documentry last night and was very intrigued. i also see the future but only my own, although maybe in a selfish way i’ve only wanted to know more about my life and not the troubles of the world as i know it would be disturbing. It comes to me as it is, in snipets or like yourself, comes in easy symbols, if i don’t understand the symbols i ask them to eleborate. So, when i ask a question before i go to bed, 9 times out of 10 it gets answered, it depends on if i have something else on my mind.
    I can hear spirits,sense them and occasionally see them but my gift is tuning into other people. i can feel what poeple are doing and know who is giving me a psychic attack.I’m sure i tuned into Marci last night and mentions “willow”?? I’m probably stabbing in the dark here, who knows!!!
    Also, being a strange girl, i’m sure i tuned into you last night (05/02/09) and you have something to tell me??? It was about my future, you see my future is quite dark and asked for your help.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Very Strange K!!!!

    Yes we do know, what happened to her, but who will speak up? who wants to be hit with a law suite. Reminds me of recent events with J Sav STINKS±

  • Karzan Clipp

    Its all true, I don’t have the answers to why some people can do it and
    others cannot. Myself predicted who the Yorkshire Ripper was, where he came
    from and how he looked and what he did as a job. Every plane crash especially Lockerby, I said a jumbo jet
    will be blown out of the sky over Scotland, I described the blue colour of the
    jet, it happened. Then three
    days before, the USA terrorist attack, I saw plan hitting the tower, then
    flames, and other stuff I cant say on paper. Last night on Sky there was a documentary of an Edinburgh
    man who predicted things in his dreams, this I don’t do, he was set a task, he
    had to predict where he would be taken to the following day. He didn’t actually
    get it in my opinion, but within 2 seconds I did, I nailed it.

    I have from a very young child predicted death, (friends and
    relatives) sometimes others and asked about missing people are they alive or
    dead I know, without any doubt what I say is true. Over thirty years ago was on a talk show discussing the
    exact same agenda, where then we were seen as mad, not any more, the media has
    helped to change ideas of the nation but at the same time has made it into
    entertainment that I DO NOT AGREE WITH.
