Within the last few years ive been having a LOT of Deja'vu, at first i dismissed it as nothing but its getting a bit creepy now.
I was wondering if anyone could shed some llight on this for me?

Thanks for the 3 line thread-starter...

Can you give us more info? Everyone experiences this.

Its a phenomenon that is experienced by all people (almost anyway). Whether or not this experience is a function of your brain or time, you will never find out...

Think about it.. Your brain remembers things from earlier in your life.

1st.. What if you are actually behind (time-wise) your brain functions? What if you aren't as in control as you think?

2nd possibility.. Your brain is inserting this phenomenon LATER even though you FEEL like you are experiencing it EARLIER, as a memory.

3rd and least likely.. You are able to view the future...

Poor way to start a thread. Please offer more insight to your specific situation. Otherwise, we're all in the same boat.

Scientifically speaking though, your brain is aware of what is going on before your consciousness is. A prime example would be, you drop a dollar on the ground. Before you even bend over to pick it up, your mind has already sent the signals to the parts of your body envolved in the movements to pick it up. You're only aware of it happening when your body starts moving. So Deja Vu *could* be that you simply half-realized what you were going to do as the brain started sending out the signals through your nerves, making your consciousness aware of what you are about to do, to a degree anyway. Then while you are picking up your dollar, it feels like you've done the same exact thing in the same exact place. Only because your mind has already told your body what to do before your body was aware of it.

However this doesn't explain some stronger forms of Deja Vu. Such as someone going to a place they have never been to before, getting deja vu before they turn a corner, and tell you exactly what is around the corner before they get there.

All in all Deja Vu remains mostly a mystery, and there are many speculations as to what causes it.
