Every night throughout the world hundreds of people dream about this face


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. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

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. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

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“.

From January 2006 until today, at least 2000 people have claimed they have seen this man in their dreams, in many cities all over the world: Los Angeles, Berlin, Sao Paulo, Tehran, Beijing, Rome, Barcelona, Stockholm, Paris, New Dehli, Moscow etc.

At the moment there is no ascertained relation or common trait among the people that have dreamed of seeing this man. Moreover, no living man has ever been recognized as resembling the man of the portrait by the people who have seen this man in their dreams.

The site even through out a few theories to explain the mysteriously recurring presence of this man in the dreams of different people. They say their goal is to help those who have seen this man in their dreams and to foster communication among them. And to understand whom this man is and why he appears in an apparently pattern-less array of situations in the dreams of such diverse human subjects. If I were a gambling man, I’d say this is the beginning of a viral campaign. How it unfolds we’ll have to wait and see.

    Great article.
    “The site even through out a few” should be “The site even threw* out a few”
