Déjà Vu

Have you ever truly felt déjà vu, the sensation that you’ve already had the experience you’re currently having?

Psychology Today described it as ‘glitches in time, when the rules bend and the mystery takes hold. Enchanted moments that sparkle.’

How Stuff Works took, as can be expected, a more scientific approach and investigated how déjà vu works.

I prefer the more mysterious quote from Psychology Today. I don’t mind the rules being bent and moments in my life sparkling. In fact, I don’t mind not understanding completely.

I suppose it can be attributed to many things. Your brain stores memories, pictures, dreams and thousands of other things. It’s bound to make a mistake and not process it properly. Déjà vu is a brain hiccup; not a hiccup in time.
