A french word meaning, "already seen", is Deja Vu an abnormality of memory or something else?
Wikipedia gave me this scientific response;
The psychologist Edward B. Titchener in his book 1928 A Textbook of Psychology, explained déjà vu as caused by a person having a brief glimpse of an object or situation, before the brain has completed "constructing" a full conscious perception of the experience. Such a "partial perception" then results in a false sense of familiarity.
But critics say this;
However, this explanation has been criticized that the brain would not be able to store information without a sensory input first.
Where do we stand on this people? Is Deja Vu an abnormality in our CPU (brain) or is it a glitch in The Matrix caused by who knows....
I don't know. I used to have de ja vu all the time. Along with sleep paralysis. Up until I had a kundalini experience. I think it's a kind of precursor to that. Like small glimpses into other forms of conciousness.
Scientifically, I've heard that it's possibly just a mini seizure.
When you had deja vu did you remember the thoughts for awhile or was it the normal feeling that goes away after a few minutes.
