Tonic, you seem a little spaztic about this and I'm sorta wondering if it isn't an act.
Anyway, i like the "brain firing twice" idea. It makes more sense than most explanations. Have you ever had Deja Vu of something that you know
you've always remembered, or is it just that something you never "remembered" seems to come back to you as it is happening again? So deja vu in
most cases isn't really a MEMORY. Do you ever have Deja Vu and know whats gonna happen in 60 seconds, or 5 minutes? or do you just know, "this is
familiar"? So yeah, the double-tap from your brain seems like a great answer, and this would explain why a certain person can have a strong case.
I have it perhaps more than most people (but most people don't tell me how often they have it, so i'm guessing.) That sorta fits, because my family
has a pattern of brain problems. My brother has a sleep disorder or two. I had seizures as a baby which became little more than a rare twitch as I
grew up. None of us in my father's blood line are particularly resonsive to most chemicals... so yeah, maybe i have deja vu for the same reason.
