How dare you misspell deja vu!


But in all seriousness, scientific study would be immensely difficult do to the unpredictability of the phenomena. I get it quite often and know it to be true myself. The problem is: personal experiences don't hold up to the scrutiny of the scientific community. Perhaps a survey to determine who gets it and how often would be a starting point, though there would be no way to distinguish liars from those who answer honestly (except maybe polygraph).

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. :-)

I experience deja vu a lot mostly when I have had dreams throughout the week that I can remember and are very vivid. About two weeks ago I had a dream that my boss was going to be pissed off. Guess what... the next day he was and he almost got wrote up for it and I have the recording on my phone. Later I left work to go home but I remembered that I had plans to go see a friend. I really didn't want to go but instead I jumped from the tree of life and went out on a limb. Got to my friends house greeted them and she left out of the room and that's when I had deja vu. Then I realized I had this same dream last night. Ya see deja vu is really when u let everything fall into place. It may take time but at least you know that you are meant to be there. Pay attention to your dreams and keep them in the back of your mind and then it will be right before your eyes.

I believe it is something to do with the matrix.

its supposed to be a chemical inbalance in your brain, something to do with one half of your brain being out of sync with the other half, when it catches up you think you have already seen it. Sounds logical to me.
