What you're describing is classic deja vu
, of course.
But just exactly deja vu
is... that's a question that is yet to be answered satisfactorily.
My mother told me that once, many decades ago, she dreamt about a man that she had never seen in her life. The dream was nothing special: she was
walking down a certain street, and this young man was coming towards her. They exchanged a brief glance (as people passing by often do) and kept
walking, in opposite directions.
The next day that scene actually happened - exactly as she saw it in her dreams. And what's curious about this is precisely the fact that it was a
(seemingly) totally unimportant event.
We all know by now that time, as our consciousness perceives it, isn't really "there". So it wouldn't be all that surprising if it turned out that
the subconscious mind is able to explore Time in both "directions": the past and the future.
As for "changing" things... It's funny you should mention that. Two days ago, I was standing in my living room doing a special (mind) exercise. It
was shortly after dawn break, and I saw the line of street lights being turned off. A few (perhaps five) seconds later - I saw them go out for the
second time. Naturally, I was somewhat startled: after I've seen them go out for the first time they hadn't been turned on again (to be then turned
off again), of course.
Time sure is a quirky fellow...
