Such dreams can never include something which is not in some way a part of the past experience of the person. They allow scope for novelty only in respect of new combinations of items which have already appeared in past experience.
The rare types of dreams are those about persons and things unknown in this life but known in some past life or lives.
Still more rare are the dreams of persons and things which have never appeared in this life or former lives but are going to appear in this life in the future.
Ordinary dreams are thus utterly different from dreams which have occult significance.
