When the 'wind' was blowing were objects in your room flying around. Did you feel wind on your skin?
Things weren't flying around my room but as I recall I felt it on my face, and my hair was flying around. I do remember looking at my sister and wondering why she didn't wake up from all the noise and wind, and I don't believe her hair or anything on her bed was even moving. It seemed isolated just to me.
This is fascinating. I wonder if we are all born with ingrained memories and a foundation of basic knowledge passed down through our genes. That would explain the past-lives phenomenon. And also explains how birds migrate and build nests despite ever being taught or seeing another bird do it. Their knowledge is genetic. We aren't that much different genetically and we all share common ancestors with fish! I don't know, and it's just food for thought.
That could very well be and I do think that happens to an extent. However (and I am a believer in reincarnation) it wouldn't explain the past lives experiences people have of folks they have no relation to.
In my case, my father is a huge geek (so am I). Would his sci-fi knowledge at the time I was conceived (1974) been sufficient to cover everything I was 'told' in these dreams? And strong enough to actually be genetically encoded in order to be passed on to me and made into accessible information in my subconscious brain? It's an interesting question at the very least, which brings up further questions in my mind (not necessarily posed to you and not necessarily that can actually be answered).
Were the understandings of science, even science fiction, at the time I was conceived the same as what I was shown in these dreams (that is, was I shown something that hadn't been discovered at the time of my conception but later was discovered, such as something to do with string theory or quantum mechanics?) If so, was my father in possession of this knowledge at the time I was conceived?
What is the mechanic by which these particular bits of knowledge were so vividly engrained in my genetics from my father's genetics, to the point they were precisely encoded in my subconscious mind to be drawn upon in these experiences...and why did not other knowledge, experiences, and facts also so imprint and display themselves? To simplify- why would the knowledge of science mechanics and alien culture be so strongly programmed into my mind from conception, and not something like, say...my father's wartime experience, knowledge of mathematics, the highly traumatic time he was almost killed as a child, his musical talent and prowess, etc.
What would be the evolutionary point? I can see the evolutionary point of encoding traumatic memories of threats, injuries, poisonings, etc into genetic memory to be passed down to offspring. I can also see the evolutionary point of passing down edible or poisonous food items, migration routes, breeding grounds, what predators look like, etc. It's hard to see, however, the evolutionary point to passing down details of personal interests and hobbies that have no evolutionary impact of survivability. More, it's hard to see how personal interests and hobbies would be encoded and passed down OVER things that WOULD impact survivability, such as military training, life-threatening experiences and physical trauma, etc.
So yeah, in short short-
1-Did my father possess knowledge of the kind I was shown in these dreams?
2-Did he possess said knowledge at the time I was conceived?
3-Was said knowledge even available for him to possess-consciously or subconsciously (say, he read an article then forgot about it) at the time that I was conceived?
4-Did my mother, as applies to any of these questions?
5-If so, what is the evolutionary mechanism that would pass down such knowledge in such full and rich detail, yet not pass down knowledge as pertains to more immediate and evolutionarily necessary survival skills?
6-Is anyone even still reading my rambling? LOL!
Definitely food for thought.
