Deja Vu: Past life experience, or mind tricks?
I've read that the brain jumps ahead using it's logical side to predict what will happen and many times it's correct.
Never experienced it.
Not that I can recall, but typing this post right does seem very familiar to me. Wait!!!
Not a past life. A parallel life. A tear in the membrane of gravity.
I'm not even sure what that's supposed to mean.
Déjà vu for me is more like it dream something & later that scene happens & I recall having dreamt it. That doesn't really fit either answer.
I dream...stupid autocorrect!
I read that it's like your brain shuts off for a split second and you "wake up" remembering your last vision, thinking it was a long time ago... I thought it was interesting
Some of each, and maybe some of extra options.
cowboy in the house!
I'd say is just the brain drawing a comparison to a similar experience from the past.
Not an exciting answer, I know... :-p
Try RJ's answer on for size.
You only live once. No recycling of our lives.
I know it's my brain playing tricks on me.
It's the mind trying to force experience A2 into experience A1's pigeonhole. They're similar, so the brain tries to save space by making them identical.
So, the brain is using compression techniques like a computer? Interesting.
Well, my Nobel Prize in Neurology hasn't come through just yet, but it's at least a reasonable hypothesis, I guess. :-D
Didn't we talk about this exact same thing last week?
Coincidence that the party that believes in go also believes in déjà vu? I don't think so...
I believe in God. I have experienced déjà vu. It's a weird momentary I have been here, although I know I have never been here feeling. How does that negate God?
Geez, common! We all know about the corpus colosum, right?
Far too votes to make a statistical correlation! Let's see what happens when some more votes come in.
Okay, duly chastised :)
Duly noted! However, now that we have more votes, the correlation is stronger. So, you were on the right track, statistically.
There are several reviews in the leading journals on this issue.
It comes down to the corpus colosum. The linkage between the right and left hemispheres.
What happens if you're left handed? Do you have jamais vu?
RJ. Is that corpus thing near the hubris? I'm told that I've got hubris.
I experienced Deja Vu today. I believe it means that I'm on the right path again.
That's what I believe too :-)
It's actually other universes over lapping with our own at the moment that similar events are happening in both. What, you didn't know that? Jeez.
Thank you, Rob! You're kind of the deep thinker I was trying to attract.
Now that was funny.
