Is there a scientific explanation for why two different people can receive a near identical dream?
I ask this because of an experience shared by two members of my family that I believe may believe to be the result of supernatural activity.
Whilst on holiday in Wales my Grandmother and Cousin both experienced the same dream of an evil woman attempting to lure them into danger. As an atheist I mostly just ignored this story out of cognitive dissonance, but now, as I accept the supernatural as a reality, I now take it more seriously, and see parallels with the Lilitu demon in Babylonian and Jewish mythology, as a nighttime demon which seduces people in their sleep. Sure, this seduction was non-sexual, but I still see it as a parallel or variant.
Has anyone got a scientific explanation for this?
