I'm a bit skeptical of the findings.
Partially because the phenomena of deja vu, in my experience, tends to be quite individual and difficult to properly communicate.
Some people just get a very eerie sense of "I've done this before."
Others say they recall the event happening weeks or years ago.
I, and others, have finished entire conversations for people, and left their mouth agape. Mere neurological hiccups don't really explain that type
Granted - I've also had the "lesser" phenomena - but the more 'genuine' experience is likened to a few times when I've had the sensation of,
somehow, viewing another person's memory (possibly connected to a form of what would be called "remote viewing"). For example - there was a day
when one of my e-friends was sick, and I had the most bizarre sensation of empathy coupled with what I can only describe as seeing her self-image. I
was able to accurately describe the room she was in (that I'd never seen in any form). Though I envisioned a hard-wood floor (that later turned out
to be beneath the carpet) - which was not in her memory (I chalk it up subjectivity on my part).
Later, we were talking about family reunions and the like - and I got another weird 'memory' of walking along a road and coming upon this house. I
attempted to draw what I saw, and it turned out to be a fairly accurate image of the neighborhood her grandmother lived in (in Austria).
It's anecdotal, and open to huge amounts of subjective influence from all angles (both in her assessment of its accuracy and I'm known for having a
very effective sense of approximation and imagination) - but I do believe that, because her and I are somewhat similar and seem to understand each
other in ways that don't make sense outside of being twins... that there was some kind of para (outside) normal element to it. Exactly what and how
encompassing... I don't really know.
And that's how I can describe the 'genuine' deja vu situations. The "I finish your statement for you and we just met" sort of stuff. Again - I
can't rule out subjective influences and various other factors... but there's just that 'flavor' of something that rests outside the currently
accepted mechanics of existence.
But, maybe I just find the insinuation that I have a small hypocampus insulting and am attempting to compensate by making my experiences paranormal in
