Default Déjà Vu - Your Explanation.

Have you ever had this happen? How do you think it happens? I personally believe it has nothing to do with a brain misinterpreting signals from the senses or a memory malfunction. I had this happen a load of times when I was a child, and even though some of them may have been possibly just my brain falsely telling me that I "recall" the scene, the most vivid one I can remember was having a dream about riding a bike near my home, to the side of a parking lot next to it. There was a family coming from a walk in the park in front of me. There was a girl in a yellow raincoat and when I was passing around her, she sticked out her tongue at me. I woke up and was like what the hell?

That day I was riding a bike and when I got to the parking lot, I saw exactly that - man and woman with a little girl in a yellow raincoat, I could tell it was totally them. My jaw dropped so I began staring at them like wtf so when I was passing around her she stuck out her tongue at me for staring and at that moment I finally got it lol.
I know for sure I knew she was gonna do that before she did, because I remember thinking to myself something like "right and now she's gonna stick out her tongue" So that's it, scientific evidence!

So why do you think it happens?

I have experienced déjà vu on a fairly regular basis, although never quite so vividly as yourself. In my case, it often comes about as I'm physically manipulating or assembling something. I'll have a sudden sense that I've done the same thing before even though, when I pause and think about it, I'm usually able to rule that out as impossible. The memories are usually just images of objects, although there have been one or two "event" memories.

I think there are definitely multiple types of déjà vu. Yours seems like a psychic experience! My own are probably just a short-circuit between my short- and long-term memory. My neurons must not be particularly well-insulated from one another.

Déjà Vu... hmm. Good subject, Rasomaso, very good subject

I have déjà vu's very often, most of them are with cats or with things and events that I "saw" coming. It happens the second day, I anticipate it the previous day(s) and remind it when doing it. Just like yesterday when I was going downtown with a friend of mine and I saw the House of People coloured by the light of the setting Sun, and it all happened like two flashes in one. At that moment I remembered that on Sunday I had the same image while daydreaming and it happened the same ! If you don't know what the House of People is, here it is :



I had the same Déjà Vu when my dad came to Bucharest so we could hang around a little, and I saw this happening one day before, eventhough he called me for a meeting after "seeing" the event... I was kinda shocked.

I believe that Déjà Vu's are reminiscences from another life about seeing things, which can be connected with prediction and stuff like that... Here is a better explanation on Déjà Vu's :

I like to think that in the future, I become a professional time traveler and my experiences then are somehow altering my life now by giving me Deja Vu. Not sure how that would work, but soon enough I will...

That is what is called precognitive dreaming. I have had several instances of it as well. Most people don't remember having the dream and only have the incident happen and think 'I've had this happen before.' Those of us who have this 'talent' are lucky that we remember the dream.
I can count on on hand the number of precog dreams that I have had, and even my kids have inherited some of that talent. When faced with that kind of experience and evidence, it's hard not to believe in esp and all other abilities in sci fi that have been written about.
I did a paper in English about past life regression and most of the time it's children who bring it up and are silenced by adults who think they're only making it up. A child's mind is not closed off to the possibilities we're capable of, adults don't believe it because they've either never had it or don't remember.
It's there. 'You just have to open your mind and believe.'

It's confirmation bias. People remember unusual moments, where they did have something with similar elements (often, a dream, I think) but they forget the 99.9% of the time where they didn't. It's just like the old thing where you phone someone and they say 'I just thought of you', then they don't mention the 99.9% of times where they think of you and you don't coincidentally phone them.

but it's so improbable to happen in such detail, I don't think that's a coincidence. I'd say the reason is it already happened before, if the time is slowing down in the universe, I think it's just gonna reverse and go back to the point 0 and history will repeat itself endlessly. I know it's a crazy idea but I'm right hahaha

I have them all the time. I dream a lot too.

Usually I feel that I have experienced something from another persons body. Weird stuff.

Most of my deja vu experiences deal with dialogue.

I also experience deja vu fairly frequently, but I think it's to do with my dreams. Most of the time when I get the feeling, I can usually place a dream having happened in a similar way and it makes me feel in an almost dreamlike state when I realise. It's quite a profound sensation, like seeing things more clearly. I do tend to have a really good memory of my dreams though. I've always thought I should write a book since there's that many I can remember!

On a slightly different note, I had a dream about two weeks ago that a wisdom tooth on the top rightside of my mouth started coming through, and guess what, it started to come through two days ago! I love life's little coincidences!

Déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens when they change something.



...On a serious note, it's just all coincidence to me. Gonna have to fully agree with HNM on this, especially on the "99.9% of the time" argument (an excellent way of putting it).

I think deja vu is a manifestation of the quantum mechanics' nature of the Universe, if the probability of an event is not zero, then it's plausible to happen. After all, we are susceptible to energetic processes.
