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.

The theories of the bald, bushy-browed guy range from some sort of Jungian archetype to the face of God to some real-life human who invades other people’s dreams. Or it could just be a generic face that we perceive as being unique and recognizable.

Or it could be time to get out your tin foil hat because this man’s face is being beamed into our heads for mind control, and only some remember him and their dreams. Or there could a somewhat simpler answer:

    That’s Ben Gazzara when he was in “Run for Your Life”

  2. pwuk says:

    I’ve been having these weird dreams, I seem to visit people in their dreams and give them advice: look both ways before crossing the road, allways brush your teeth at night.

  3. McCullough says:

    Somebody should run this through the NSA’s face recog program.

  4. Greg Allen says:

    I wouldn’t jump to the conclusion that this is B.S.

    The face is somewhat archetypical and maybe could occur in more than one person’s dreams.

  5. A priest touched me says:

    It’s Jay-sus!

  6. bdgbill says:

    It’s L Ron Hubbard.

  7. LibertyLover says:

    Uncle Emmett Brown?

    One of his experiments really worked?

    NO WAY!!!

  8. Rich says:

    He could be a mental fusion or average of several different faces. I would say one of the component faces is a generic smiley face, eg “Have A Nice Day.”

  9. Father says:

    I know a Turkish man that is a very good match for this face.

    The oval face is an odd off-nominal feature that seems to have a low frequency outside Korea.

  10. Thomas says:

    It’s Mr. Fusion….

  11. noname says:

    Hey, that looks like me!!!

    No surprising, women dream of me all the time.

  12. deowll says:

    Was that a picture of Uncle Dave? I thought he was younger?

    [I wish I was younger –UD]

  13. Rick says:

    It’s Michael Constantine! And no, I don’t dream about him.

  14. gmknobl says:

    Oh, my GOD! Neil Diamond is invading our dreams! GAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

  15. James says:

  16. James says:

    Viral marketing for the “A Nightmare on Elm Street” remake?

  17. ethanwc says:

    I think it’s for Chris Nolan’s “Inception” due out next year.

    If it isn’t, it should be.

  18. dvorak says:

    david loves margui !!!

  19. aoife says:

  20. Nameless1 says:

    I’ve seen this guy’s face in both a story book when I was younger and a song book. He was called the boogie man. After seeing him in both of those things, I had my first dream about him.
