Has anyone ever read Future Memory by P.M.H. Atwater?

Asked by dkranzberg (532points) September 28th, 2010

“FUTURE MEMORY” is about people who “live” the future before it physically manifests, and remember having done so. This pre-living is so totally real and utterly involved that there is no way to tell the difference between present time and future time while the phenomenon is in progress. Sensory rich, Future Memory suggests that the future can somehow overlay the present, enabling an individual to “rehearse” or prepare in advance for what is about to happen in life. Mistakenly termed “flash forwards” by some researchers, Atwater shows how future memory differs from other modes of futuristic awareness such as clairvoyance, precognition, and deja vu.

The idea is intriguing, to say the least. What do you think of the notion of future memory?

I haven’t read the book, but I’m familiar with her work. I’ll look for that one.
