PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Behavioral Correspondences to Normally Unpredictable Future Events—Part II

Jule Eisenbud, M.D.


The second case I should like to present is, unfortunately, fraught with as many difficulties in interpretation as the first. Where it gains in one respect it loses in another, which is the tantalizing way with such cases. I consider it worthy of presentation, however, precisely because it appears to have just those points of interrelatedness with the first case that might, after proper analysis, conceivably lend added support to the hypothesis that neither case represents a series of normally explainable correspondences. And this too, in my experience, is the way with these cases.

A woman patient in analysis dreamed:

'I see my mother in a new Pontiac automobile. Immediately behind her is a car with Negroes in it which catches fire. I am frantically alarmed that it may explode and that my mother will get hurt unless she gets out of the way.'

A few minutes after leaving my office following the hour in which she reported this dream, the patient came upon a cordon of police holding back a crowd which had collected around the remains of a taxi which, she was told, had just exploded when its gas tank caught fire. When the patient reported this to me on the next day, she described the wreckage as having been strewn over a considerable area, and there was no doubt in her mind, as, apparently there was none in that of some of the other spectators at the scene, that only a violent explosion could have caused this.
