De ja vu: Is it something in our past or future?


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/02/de-ja-vu-is-it-something-in-our-past-or-future/

“I am certain. This has happened somewhere in the past. Why is it happening exactly just the same now?”

This is déjà vu. A familiar experience with a sense of eeriness, strangeness or weirdness that is most likely attributed to a real or imaginary life experience that a person attest in extreme conviction that this has indeed happened in the past.

There is still no clear-cut reason behind deja vus, although few psychologists note an explicable link between dreams and déjà vu. According to them, some déjà vu are actually the memory of our dreams. We don’t remember majority of our dreams however a dreaming person could retain the dreaming activity as part of his or her long-term memory.

In this case, experts said that déjà vu might be a parcel of a long forgotten dream with elements similar with the current waking experience.

Dream expert Kevin Heady suggested that a feeling of remembering occurs in a sense that he might realize that what he had dreamed of before is a relevant present action taking place at this very moment.
“I was once watching TV here in the living room noticing that my plate and glass seemed well too familiar, it also feels like my head motions were foreseen, and that every move would trigger a continuation to happen or so, This is quite different from the deja vu that I had when I was little, I knew it, I dreamed of this years ago, as a little boy, that amazingly and entire piece of memory was regained and I finally understood when and where I was dreaming and how long this dream was, and most importantly how many years ago did I dream.”
