In recent years, déjà vu has been subjected to serious psychological and neurophysiological research. The most likely explanation of déjà vu is that it is not an act of "precognition" or "prophecy", but rather an anomaly of memory; it is the impression that an experience is "being recalled". See Chris Moulin's work. This explanation is substantiated by the fact that the sense of "recollection" at the time is strong in most cases, but that the circumstances of the "previous" experience (when, where and how the earlier experience occurred) are quite uncertain. Likewise, as time passes, subjects can exhibit a strong recollection of having the "unsettling" experience of déjà vu itself, but little to no recollection of the specifics of the event(s) or circumstance(s) they were "remembering" when they had the déjà vu experience. In particular, this may result from an overlap between the neurological systems responsible for short-term memory (events which are perceived as being in the present) and those responsible for long-term memory (events which are perceived as being in the past). In other words, the events would be stored into memory before the conscious part of the brain even receives the information and processes it. This would explain why one is, if it ever comes to mind, powerless trying to twist the outcome of the event in order to create a paradox. The delay is only of a few milliseconds, and besides, already happened at the time the conscious of the individual is experiencing it.

So what your saying is I've been traveling through realitys in my dreams, and possibly destroying other realitys?

OK I have beeen browsing this site since I was around 12, and I read reports of ghost stories and monsters, and wished it would happen to me... but it never did, untill I turned 14...
Now usually I'm a skeptic about the paranormal and super-powers and stuff like that but that changed recently. Now I turned 14 roughly a month ago and ever since then I have been having these dreams where I go to the past, but as soon as the dream starts I realize it's a dream so I take control (I think it's called Lucid Dreaming), anyway usually I try to do things to change the outcome of the dream, so I'm going to give you an example of whats going on...
When I was 8 yrs. old I for some stupid reason jumped out of a window on the 2nd story of my house (around 10-12 feet), now when I did that I gashed my shin open and had to recieve stitches, so as you all know that left a pretty nasty scar, so anyway about 3-4 days after my B-Day I had the first dream, and in that dream I was replaying the moment when I jumped out of the window, but I changed it thinking it was a normal dream, I instead stepped back and went to play with my dog instead... Now when I woke up the next morning I thought everything was normal untill I stubbed my toe and looked down just to see the scar was gone, now at first I thought I was just looking at the wrong leg, but when I checked the other one there was no scar there either, and these dreams have been more and more frequent lately, and on top of all that since these dreams started, I've been having more paranormal encounters, like ghosts, orbs, and creatures...
Anyway my main reason for posting this was to see if anyone out there has had anything like this happen to them, or to see if anyone could tell me whats going on, because this is getting extreamly hard on me, I cant sleep because I'm worried it will happen again, and that it might be an even bigger decision for me to make, so please if you know anything about this please let me know.
