Why do you think deja vu happens?

Postby Aquafireland » Thu Sep 05, 2013 5:45 am

Just a thread on your thoughts on the question: Why do you think deja vu happens?

I personally do not know why, so lets see if all of you can give me some of your ideas.

Because the matrix was changed obviously
Progressivism 100
Socialism 56.25
Tenderness 50


Your test scores indicate that you are an open-minded ultra-progressive; this is the political profile one might associate with a journalist. It appears that you are skeptical towards religion, and have a balanced attitude towards humanity in general.

Your attitudes towards economics appear neither committedly capitalist nor socialist, and combined with your social attitudes this creates the picture of someone who would generally be described as a liberal.

To round out the picture you appear to be, political preference aside, a sensible realistic egalitarian with several strong convictions.

This or the fact that seeing something exactly like something you've seen before can create an uncomfortable link back to that time, causing you to feel something similar to what you were feeling at that moment.

Patterns. The human brain is designed to find patterns in everything, whether or not there is an actual pattern, and to relate things to other, familiar things. Deja vu happens when a pattern crops up unexwpectedly in the right way.

It happens because human beings love to believe coincidences in repeated events are scientific explanations.
For so long, Mankind has been plagued by division. Division by culture, creed, skin color, religion and nationality. These very divisions have been the cause of most human conflicts. But in the age of globalism, we can finally have that chance to implement a world government where all human beings are seen as equals. Isn't that what everyone wants? World peace? I do. You should support that too. It may not end all conflicts, but the reductions of Man on Man violence will be at an all time low when the entire planet gets administered by one governing body.

You perceive details before you consciously take notice of them and those details form a pattern in your brain. You take that pattern and use it to predict what's about to happen even though the situation you're calling back to may not have been as similar as it feels. Same with a sudden uneasy feeling, your brain picked up a few details before you did and says shit is about to go down.

I had always thought deja vu occurred because of past lives. Just something I though since I was little.

But, as I am not the best at the science of the brain, I have no clue about a scientific explanation, so I shan't say more.

I also think about patterns. Deja vu could be a narrational scenario to make sense out of coincidencies. It might be either tragedy (helpless fate) or drama-comedy (inspirational providence) or some of other scripts. This is not any scientific but maybe aspect in an individual nlp anyway.

I support peace in Israel and Palestine. The governments and people in power on all sides are an absolute disgrace, and their unwillingness to pursue peace is a disservice to the people they are meant to be serving. The status quo is not simply untenable; it is unquestionably unacceptable.
