“You see things as they are and you say, 'Why?' I dream things that never were; and say, 'Why not?'”
If you haven't seen this man before, click here.
A couple of months back I stumbled onto the website for this phenomena. If you're too lazy to check the website out, basically the story goes:
"In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. The psychiatrist decides to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognize the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients refer to him as This Man."
The website goes on to explain that thousands of people have now come forward, claiming to see this man in their dreams. Pretty creepy, no?
But this just in: It's probably a hoax, according to www.jawbone.tv. They did some digging around and say that "The registrant of thisman.org, Andrea Natella, is the director of guerrigliamarketing.it, an advertising agency that uses non-conventional communication techniques, like the creation of fictitious events or campaigns reaching the limits of legality, through which they 'fuck the market, in order to enter it'."
So there you have it. Probably just a twisted experiment to mess with everyone's minds.
