Ever Dream This Man?

Every night throughout the world hundreds of people dream about this face.

WEIRD. This is like something out of Twin Peaks. Or a Todd Barry comedy routine.

from thisman.org

HISTORY

In January 2006 in New York, the patient of a well-known psychiatrist draws the face of a man that has been repeatedly appearing in her dreams. In more than one occasion that man has given her advice on her private life. The woman swears she has never met the man in her life.

That portrait lies forgotten on the psychiatrist’s desk for a few days until one day another patient recognizes that face and says that the man has often visited him in his dreams. He also claims he has never seen that man in his waking life.

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

The aim of this website is:
- to help those who have seen this man in their dreams and to foster communication among them;
- to understand who this man is and why he appears in an apparently pattern-less array of situations in the dreams of such diverse human subjects.

    Perhaps the brain's idea of a “generic” face happens to look like this man? Anyway, it's quite interesting.

    Wow interesting, the explanations on the site are great, one being this is the face of God. Yes folks, God has a monobrow.

      It looks like Mister Rogers that why so many people know the face, him and his kids TV show has now aired everywhere in the world.

    Sorry to break it to you, but if you do a WHOIS on the domain…

    Registrant email: a.natella@guerrigliamarketing.it

    And then, http://framework.v2.nl/archive/archive/leaf/oth

    “Andrea Natella was born and lives in Rome. He is the creative director of guerrigliamarketing.it, sociologist and journalist investigating youth culture and media communication, and a writer for TV programs about magic. Using a variety of pseudonyms, he has published essays on UFO”s, extreme sex and the art of sabotage. In 1995 he was known as Luther Blissett.

    Founded in Italy in 2003 guerrigliamarketing.it, is an advertising agency that uses non-conventional communication techniques, like the creation of fictitious events or campaigns reaching the limits of legality, through which “fuck the market in order to enter it”, entering the media system and taking away the automatism communication. Projects include a.o.: Rottama il Brand (Wreck the Brand), Shock and Hoax, Spazio Disponibile (Available Space), Espropriproletari (proletarian expropriation), and Where-Next. “

    Christ, be a bit more skeptic next time and do a bit of research, you rubes.

    *That should be “skeptical”, of course.

    • ralph October 14, 2009 at 9:00 pm #

      Well, the site is called “disinformation” after all.

      Still a funny marketing stunt. Man, I was hoping God had a monobrow.

    What mystery? That's Saul Markham, he lives on King St. in Lancaster, Ohio. Everybody knows Saul.

    hmm… and all this time I thought that guy was my colleague Mayank Nawani

  7. Name October 15, 2009 at 11:44 pm #

    This guy looks a bit like Timothy McVeigh, which would explain why they can't find a living person who this looks like.

    That SOB owes me $20!

  9. jonathanstatski October 18, 2009 at 5:39 pm #

    No I never dreamed him. I wonder if dreams do have some sort of connection though. Need more evidence of this.

  10. Name October 18, 2009 at 7:42 pm #

    Luther Blissett, he shoots, he scores!

    • Name October 29, 2009 at 6:49 am #

      Blam! I found him. It's Paul Scheer. He is the dream catcher, the creator, the jungian archetype.

    Well, I have seen him in my dreams, he drives in a black car (in my point of view) and he shoots children in their dreams, but they survive in real life, I had this dream many times when I was a child, and they came out from a forest, and normally if you are in a house it is mostly a mansion.

    I saw him, well his facebook, in a dream last night.

    This guy was in my dream!!! I swear!! I read last night that you only see faces in your dream that you have seen in real life. Any then I thought of this face thinking that it was strange how I haven’t seen this one in real life to my knowledge. In the dream I think we were dating. It was odd. Only seen him once from what I can recall and it was the uni-brow that makes me most sure it was him. Or maybe…just someone else with a uni-brow, but the overall ape like appearance is similar. Very strange that I found this post a day after thinking all of this.

    This man looks like an archetype for humans the world round. He comes off almost ape-like and does not have any particularly unique features; since humans are related to apes they would probably feel comfort or at least familiarity with a face like this one. Also the lack of features plays into imagination. This is a very basic and universal face and dreams are very hazy and hard to remember, so giving the people a definite, concrete picture of face with few unique features, will cause them, through power of suggestion, to “recognize” this person.

    I have seen this man. Several years ago I had a dream of a WWII type of scenario where we were underneath a japanese barracks. I was armed only with a .45. This man was there with me. It is very strange. What does all this mean?

    You cant dream of a face you’ve never seen before. Your brain cant make up faces while you sleep. They have to come from real people you’ve seen around
