I'm not one of those people who really remembers their dreams very often.  But, I know that there are some people who can remember every detail of their dreams. Well, as it turns out many of those people claim to have seen the same man in their dreams! (cue creepy music)

The story goes like this: In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist drew the face of a man that had been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man had given her advice on her private life. The woman swore that she had never met the man in her life.

That portrait sat forgotten on the psychiatrist's desk for a few days until one day another patient recognized that face and said that the man had often visited him in his dreams. He also claimed he had never seen or met that man in his life.

The psychiatrist decided to send the portrait to some of his colleagues that have patients with recurrent dreams. Within a few months, four patients recognized the man as a frequent presence in their own dreams. All the patients referred 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, Moskow 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.

Creepy, right? There are several theories as to why this occurs, and there is even a website set up for people who have see this man in their dreams. They are encouraged to tell their stories and submit their drawings.

Am I the only one who thinks that they would never in a million years want to see this dude in their dreams? I mean, he's a little creepy looking. Almost troll-like.

Have you ever seen this man in your dreams? What's your theory?
