Premonitions, also known as precognitive visions or premonitory dreams, are experiences in which a person believes that they have gained knowledge of a future event or situation. These experiences can take many different forms, from seeing brief glimpses of the future in dreams or visions to having a strong feeling or gut instinct about an upcoming event.
The concept of premonitions has been a part of human culture and belief systems for centuries. Many people believe that it is possible to have some degree of insight into the future, and premonitions are often seen as a way to gain a glimpse into what the future may hold.
Premonitions can take many different forms, and the way in which they are experienced can vary widely from person to person. Some people claim to have vivid dreams or visions that provide detailed glimpses of the future, while others may have a more general sense or feeling that something is going to happen.
Premonitions are often associated with supernatural or paranormal phenomena, and many people believe that they are a sign of some higher power or force at work. Some people believe that premonitions are messages from the universe or from a higher power, while others see them as a manifestation of a person's psychic abilities.
Despite the widespread belief in premonitions, there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that it is possible to see the future. Many scientists and skeptics argue that premonitions are simply the result of coincidence or the power of suggestion, and that they do not represent any real insight into the future.
Despite this lack of scientific evidence, premonitions continue to capture the imagination of people around the world. Whether they are seen as a sign of some higher power or simply as a product of the human mind, premonitions remain a fascinating and mysterious phenomenon.
One of the most famous cases of premonitions occurred in the aftermath of the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks. In the days and weeks leading up to the attacks, a number of people claimed to have had premonitions or dreams about the attacks. Some people reported having dreams about planes crashing into buildings or about being in a city that was under attack.
While it is impossible to know for sure whether these premonitions were genuine or simply the result of coincidence, they illustrate the enduring fascination with the concept of seeing the future.
In conclusion, premonitions are experiences in which a person believes that they have gained knowledge of a future event or situation. While there is no scientific evidence to support the idea that it is possible to see the future, the concept of premonitions continues to capture the imagination of people around the world. Whether they are seen as a sign of some higher power or simply as a manifestation of the human mind, premonitions remain a fascinating and mysterious phenomenon.

Edit: This story is based on truth. Absolute truth.
I operate on logic. I'm a quiet, reserved man for the most part, (with exception for a few close friends). My field of expertise is computers, which require a large amounts of patience and loads of logical thinking.
Since I was a boy, I've always had a strong interest in the paranormal. I've never seen ghosts, UFOs, a Bigfoot, or anything of the sort (unfortunately). I would read, and continue to voraciously read books that deal with almost any area of paranormal phenomena. I remember checking out paranormal books at the library as a kid, and studying them intently, fascinated by things unknown.
That is not to say that I have never had an odd experience. The most prominent and vivid experience happened around 7 years ago. I was a single father under a fair amount of stress trying to raise my small children on my own. I was very happy to have them, but being a man on my own, it was very difficult at times, and easy at other times.
The days and nights would blur into each other working full time, paying bills, housework, and taking care of the children as many single parents out there do every single day. It seemed overwhelming at times, but I did the best I could.
The thought/vision/premonition continued even on to my parents becoming aware of the 'break in', and I wondered how they were going to react to this situation that had not happened, and that I was going to require their help. It was very odd, indeed. And then it stopped. I stopped what I was doing, and kind of sat down, feeling how strange it was that this had just happened. The event is difficult to explain.
Being a working man with small children, I quickly forgot about it, as I had no time to deal with unknowns, and the day to day responsibilities of life took over my primary thoughts again.
One month later, at 4 am on a Thursday morning in late autumn of 2005, I awoke to an odd noise. I half sat up, and listened very intently. I thought to myself, it must be my daughter, as she would sometimes have nightmares, and come to tell me she was scared and that she had had a 'dream'. It seemed like an eternity, because I felt something was not right. I continued to listen waiting for my daughter to appear. Another part of me knew that the noise was not my daughter.
I heard another small noise. I am still sitting half up, listening. In the next second there is a large hooded man on all fours in my doorway looking up at me. On all fours. I blinked my eyes hard and strained my eyes not believing what I was seeing. I locked eyes with the intruder. With this, a superhuman surge of adrenaline went through my entire body. Time slowed down and almost stopped. My thoughts raced at incredible speed immediately to the shotgun in my closet. NO. Its unloaded. No time. Its too big. The intruder is too close. There is no choice. This made my next action easy.
Without a sound, I leaped from my bed and went at him with the full intentions of killing him before he could cause harm to my children.
