Eric Wargo, PhD, an anthropologist, is author of Time Loops and, most recently, Precognitive Dreamwork and the Long Self: Interpreting Messages From Your Future.

Here he explains that the Experiment With Time, written by J.W. Dunne in 1927, provides a protocol by which average people can demonstrate to themselves that our dreams contain as much information from the future as from the past. He offers a series of steps to aid viewers in discovering the truth about precognition (or reverse causation) for themselves. He describes the influence that J.W. Dunne had upon several notable writers in his own day – including C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien. He explains the implications of this approach for an understanding of the “Long Self.”
