In a bio class the other day, I overheard a fellow student talking to a peer about some show on TV which determined what exactly the sensation of deja vu is. According to the show it deals with one eye blinking nano seconds before the other and the brain is left in a puzzled and confused state. All in all, its like a "brain fart".


Does anyone know what this show was or does anyone have more information on this theory?

Er. So if i blink at the same time, but one eye first I will suddenly become so confused that I think that I had experienced it before...

And considering most Deja Vu happens over a series of seconds.

Perhaps if i blink one eye before the other repeatedly so that it appears as if object are moving I will think they are coming at me!

Absurd conclusion if you ask me, follows no logic.

Maybe this is fine for the short term but . . .
How does this explain away the YEARS in between some deja vu that I have had. Knowing I have seen something happen decades before it actually does and remembering it the moment it happens?

Im just asking what the people here have heard. Im not educated on the topic and I was just wondering what other people thought. It doesnt seem to make sense to me either.

I read an article in Popular Science a while back...

www.popsci.com...


Déjà vu could be simply a temporary disorientation rooted there. aka the dubbed " brain fart".




But it also says that your brain is confused as to think you are remembering a location, which is what I think deja vu is

In response to bobafett1972,


I agree with you. I was merely asking if anyone has heard of this explanation...

If this were true, then how is it that I can tell people what is about to happen accurately?

Deja Vu is when the nuero receptors in the retina fire two shots and send them to the brain one after the other. The brain then cannot decipher how long apart the messages arrived because the anomoly of the act, and how unordinary it is.

thank you,

I believe this is what my friend tried to poorly explain.

A better worded explanation doesn't make for the truth. Deja vu has a much longer time period than an eye blink, in many instances. I once had some 90 seconds to explain what was about to happen to someone else, before the event took place. And they had enough time to understand it. I know an eye blink, and that was no eye blink.

Bad theory.

I had a whole week of solid deja vu. Explain that away as the blink of an eye or neuro connectors firing... I think that's a load of bull, and I KNOW they know it.

An eye blink has nothing to do with it, I believe the OP was mistaken. It is more internal than that. Also, I do believe that some deja vu is more esoteric than what this describes. Just my opinion anyway.

Then maybe you should have chosen a different title for your thread.


IMO I don't think the eye blink theory explains deja vu, seems to be something that happens internally in the brain.

I guess if you broke it down and studied this theory, it COULD be possible. I don't quite know enough about how the brain works to really say.

Everytime I've experienced Deja Vu, I could remember a dream I had that made me feel the same way or seemed similar. So to me, I think it has to do with that.

Just after we did our experiments on this I wrote a thread or answered on on this. let me see if I can explain it still.

Something about:

Memory is a 2 step prossess. First, the subconscious (without your knowledge or concent) runs through it's experiences and 'finds a match', or not. The 2nd step in memory is the conscious recognition.

When we bypass the 1st step and go strait to step 2, it causes that Deja Vu feeling.

Now it's been a while since I have studied that part of the brain... but if you want more info I know right where to find the studies, texts and experiments we did ourselves... I can dig it out for you if you need it for something.

It is my theory that Deja vu works in this way;

Normally, your brain sees something and once it is in there it is there and you will remember it. However with deja vu, Your brain sees something and momentarily lapses and then tries to record the same data again within milliseconds. This confuses your mind and it thinks it has seen the same thing/ event twice and because of the lapse it cannot discern how far apart the events were, what this 'lapse' is i don't know but could be as another poster said something to do with neurons firing twice instead of once. (And yes that is just my theory so dont ask for any evidence!)

Nothing to do with blinking!! haha

So how does this lapse of brain farting confusion explain the testimonies of the members who have posted in this thread?

So accordin to your theory it is a millisecond mistake in the brain, that results in minutes of extended confusion, granting the person delusional powers of foresight? All that from the brain screwing up some internal math, in this case, one plus one.


what this 'lapse' is i don't know


So you're not sure what this lapse is? I thought you just said it was the mind being confused about the fact the brain has two eyes?

You're theory basically just ignores and discredits the MAIN part of the deja-vu phenomena... The part where people actually gain the ability to fortell the upcoming events, in the sequence they are going to happen, as if their life was a movie about themselves they had already watched.

Ever get something stuck in your eye, like hair or a piece of dirt? Notice that eye blinks alot more
Well, did that give you the 'sensation of deja-vu'?


Does anyone know what this show was or does anyone have more information on this theory?


Sorry I do not.

Please title the thread correctly next time. The title implies something contrary to what the thread is actually about i.e THE ANSWER to Deja-Vu.

I peeked in, looked around, and tiptoed back out the door.

I've always wondered if there are different types of deja vu. The reason is this. When folk have it they say they " knew this was going to happen", but when I have it I just recognise what's happening as if I've seen it before but I don't exactly know what's coming next. If you know what I mean.
So, if it happens my way, where you recognise what's happening but don't exactly know what is going to happen next, then it could be a brain 'wiring' thing. But, if some folk know what exactly is going to happen then it's something else entirely, isn't it?

How do you explain deja vu with others at the same time?
