What exactly is Deja-vu? And I don't mean the definition, I mean what is it in your brain that makes you think you've seen something or done something before, even if you haven't? Looking forward to hearing some interesting theories.

Funny, I had an msn convo about this a couple of days ago.

It is supposedly a split second delay in our sensory perception. Which sounds logical if you look at how our brain has a way of messing with our time perception, for instance in dreams. We think we had the same experience hours, weeks or even months ago, but in fact it it happened a split second ago. Just as we might think we spend hours in a dream, while in fact the average dream doesn't last much longer then a few minutes.

Deja Vu is a feeling or experience that you have been somewhere or done something before even though you know you have never been there or done that.

Déjà vu - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Its etymology is French and means "Already Seen"

I cannot recall any cases where I have experienced Deja Vu. I have been to a few places where I got a really bad vibe from a place or person and could not get away fast enough. But I have never walked into a place and thought "I have been here before".

I have had several experiences of the opposite of Deja Vu, I guess they would be called premonitions.

It is usually a dream of something that happens months in the future. The dreams are always very vivid and I can always remember them but they never make any sense at the time. I can rememebr thinking more than once "That was weird" . Almost always the scenery, people, and actions Im doing are unfamiliar.

Then at some point later I will be doing something and suddenly the moment will in a sense "sync up" with the dream segment and suddenly I will realize this is the moment from the dream.

The dreams are never of anything useful and are more like short movie clips out of my daily life. To me they are just a curiosity that I dont understand but am intrigued by.

I've had the premonitions before. But sometimes you may not remember the dream.... but remember it happened before. Understand?

I'm saying, sometimes you'll have a dream of eating a steak in your living room. But you wake up and not remember you dreamed about it. Then one day you actually do eat a steak in your living room, and you think you've done it already, because you recall it in your memory, but your actually recalling the dream. Thats a form on Deja Vu for me, since after it happens I have the dream again multiple times.

But sometimes I have done something before, in the same way, someone says the same thing, in the same tone and everything. Also, whenever my mom lectures me I get a sense of Deja Vu.... :)

The feeling of having Deja-Vu is very interesting and weird for me (probably for most if not all people, buts beside the point). This is very far fetched, and the odds of it being real are small, but there is one theory I have. People think the space and everything was created by the big bang, an explosion that happened...a long time ago...and space is still being constructed by a wave that was the big bang. One of my teachers had a theory that at some point or another, the wave will stop and close in and destroy everything it created and start all over again, starting with the big bang. Now if thats true, then what if, when the wave began again, everything that had happened, would happen exactly as it did before. So in simple terms, its like pressing rewinds on space and playing it again. Maybe Deja-Vu is...well, stuff we have done, in that other time and the mind is...remembering it. Very unlikely theory, but like making theories, its fun!

I had more than a few of those, I actually thought they were the same as Deja-Vues, thanks for clearing that up to me.

I have them many many times, but they have gone down in frequency since the beginning of 2007 for me. I'm not sure how to say it really. One of the most interesting times (this actually happened twice in the same sitting) was when my 7th Grade science teacher assigned us a project on making a model of the human cell. It came in two chunks. The first time, I immediately seemed to see the actual words that she spoke and the way she showed us the rubric MINUTES before she did. She introduced the project about five minutes into the class period. Just after sitting down at the beginning of the period, I saw the whole conversation in my mind. I did not see any questions asked to the teacher, even though in real life there were questions. The second time was a few minutes into the "presentation" of the assignment. The exact same thing happened with a few more phrases, except I did not remember where I had heard it from this time. Again, I did not hear any questions asked by students. Brains are strange! :uhoh:
