Do we dream into the future?

Here’s something that has bugged me for some time.

So, when we dream, inevitably the thing that wakes up up is an alarm or sound.  I’ve had times, and I’ hope you have too, that the sound that wakes me up has somehow been incorporated into the dream.

How does this work? How do we, when you’re asleep know what’s coming and incorporate it into the dream?

It’s like you know what’s going to happen at the end of the story before the story has even been written.

Does any of that make sense? do you know what I mean?
