I had the weirdist experience the other night.
A had this dream/nightmare about being attacked by a giant bee. I was just in the act of punching out at it when I woke up suddenly - just in time to stop myself punching my wife in the head.
I pretty quickly went back to sleep and then forgot about it until the following evening when I jokingly apologised to my wife for almost hitting her. She asked why and I explained about being attacked by a giant bee. And her mouth just dropped open. Because the novel she had been reading in bed beside me that night featured a man who could control bees with his mind and make them attack people.
This was a book I had never read and knew absolutely nothing about.
Just a coincidence?
Or evidence of the untapped powers of the mind?
Forty years ago I might have reported it to the Bee Specials, but too late for that now.
(Only a few of you will get this. Apologies. But the bee story is true. And scary.)
