Is there any scientfic research taking place with what are called dreams of the future?

There are many reports of people experiencing a dream that seems to jump the barriers of time. Does anyone know of any scientific body researching this phenomenon?

      • Apr 30 2011: Hi James, I think time warps are the only means we have at the moment to explain these happenings. We can only progress by the mistakes we make, but I am sure that one day the facts will prove different. Time warps only confuse the already confused theories on life's evolving.
    • Apr 30 2011: Hi Christopher,I think perhaps the word premonition is jumping the gun. Facts are what I would be interested in; finding some relation to what makes us tick. I have a feeling that facts concerning this type of dream will be very hard to find. However if these dreams exist, they exist for a reason and the facts must be out there, simply because these dreams are out there.
