I have often thought about the phenomena of deja vu. I remember way back in a neuropsych class in college, the professor said that they felt that
deja vu was simply the brain lagging behind in being in the here-and-now. When it catches up a few seconds later, it seems like we have already
experienced it, because we have. It is only our temporal lobe catching up.
That seems like a nice, pat answer, but I don't necessarily agree. I think it has to do with the whole weird nature of time, and how the past, the
present and the future are all simultaneous. Perhaps a deja vu is simply a rift in that dimensional separation for a split second, and so we get the
feeling that it's happened before, because it has.
My brain hurts now. :-)
