ever have that type of Deja Vu
were you have a dream, wake up remembering it,
and then in a couple days/weeks/months you remember it when it actually happens?
i refuse to believe that that is fake. my brain isnt smart enough to trick me like that.

I've had this happen to me A LOT.

Definitely. I dont believe in supernatural ******** , but I know that it isnt true because that has happened too many times for me.

But when you're having that deja vu, are you SURE you actually have had said/done the same things in a DREAM, an actual dream that you're 100% sure you had? After all, a lot of time has passed since (days, weeks or months). You didn't pay attention when you allegedly had the dream, but now somehow you remember it, even though it was something pretty mundane or insignificant? Whenever I got deja vu, I was never sure if I had seen the events in a dream some time prior, thought about it before, or my brain just screws up thinking that this has happened before, when it actually has not.
TL;DR you might not have actually had that dream you thought you had, and the feeling of familiarity is due to something else

Whenever you have a deja vu you just died a little later on and then restarted from the last checkpoint. The feeling of having seen/done it before is because some of the events overlap. Then you do other stuff, unknowingly, to prevent said death.

Science is easy when you make it up :)

There was a night in which I was staying at my cousin's house and I had a dream in where the house was burning, I told them and they just replied "It's okaylil ***** , it was just a bad dream".
Around 2-3 days later they were having a BBQ, something went wrong and almost burned up the whole house.

MFW they told me what happened

The worst thing is when you have that experience, is when you realize it and no matter what you do, you can't change it.

I have once. I know it anecdotal, but it was deja vu of me playing a game. I remember leaving cover and being shot to **** , but instead I stayed in cover and nailed the guy who would have killed me, so it confuses me how it works.
#37 to #4 - notafunnyguy (03/08/2013) [-]
yup. i'll dream something, and a month or two later it'll actually happen and ill think " hey, i remmeber dreaming this"
some people say things like " oh your brain just tricks you to make you think you remember it"

bitch no, i know what i've dreampt not you

i once woke up, had had a visual screenshot flashed before my eye and forgot it. later that day, i saw that exact image happening in real life, like my brain predicted the future. ***** weird yo
User avatar #83 to #4 - limb (03/08/2013) [-]
I've had dreams before that I recall months later and I think that the dreams actually happened...at least that's what brain says.

I could be wrong, but I've heard another hypothesis is that the brain "shuts down" for an incredibly short time, resulting in feeling like the current even has occurred before.

Considering that we're far from knowing all about the brain, it's not strange that there are many possible reasons, I just hope I live to learn the specific reason.

On Svalbard in Norway, everyone may wear guns etc. in case of an encounter with a polar bear, it is quite common to see those there, there are even a "specialized police force" too control the bears.

i like the idea that déjà vu is a brain lag

While watching that video just now i realized that my brain is basically trying to understand itself while i watch it.

I get Deja Vu a lot, almost every week I have a dream and then a few weeks/months later that said dream happens IRL
#38 to #31 - anon (03/08/2013) [-]
That is not deja vu
User avatar #44 to #38 - cinematicbrix (03/08/2013) [-]
I don't see how it isn't
#51 to #44 - complecs (03/08/2013) [-]
That is deja vu, but you're not having that dream weeks or months before, obviously.
User avatar #61 to #51 - cinematicbrix (03/08/2013) [-]
Sometimes, yeah.
But many times I've been able to prove this by writing down my dreams.
#63 to #61 - complecs (03/08/2013) [-]
Then congrats, you're a psychic.

'the same chemical reaction in the brain'
'the same chemical reaction'
'chemical reaction'

do you have any idea how many chemical reactions occur in the brain every single second, and how different every single one of them is?
#70 to #13 - anon (03/08/2013) [-]
If nothing, the fact that it it feels the same should cover OP.

User avatar #15 to #13 - vatra (03/08/2013) [-]
that's the ******* point!
#17 to #15 - broorb (03/08/2013) [-]
but... I mean a physical injury and being ignored both incur thousands of chemical reactions! saying they both incur the same one is like saying there are two identical grains of sand in a beach in africa and a beach in jamaica

User avatar #18 to #17 - vatra (03/08/2013) [-]
Okay look at it this way: if a physical injury caused say two reactions if one was different it would be drastically different, yes? Now come back to reality where the injury causes thousands upon thousands of reactions, if one or two are different it doesn't make that big of a difference. Sand pretty much all looks the same until put under a microscope.
#19 to #18 - broorb (03/08/2013) [-]
you misread my point - they are ALL incredibly different and like 2 of them could be the same. thus, hardly any similarity at all. otherwise you'd feel exactly the same in either situation - hell, two different physical injuries can cause totally different chemical reactions.

find me some good evidence/sources and I'll believe you, and not just other websites that cite this word-for-word as a fact without sources
User avatar #20 to #19 - vatra (03/08/2013) [-]
It's two AM. I don't feel like doing research... I probably will later, but not now. As it stands though, I'll leave you with this, which probably won't mean much, but: next time you are ignored, focus on it, and remember that feeling, emotion aside. same goes for next time you are injured, ignore the pain and emotion if you have any, and focus on the feeling. It is remarkably similar.

I study psychology
I know my brains better than some average joe, my friend
I'm not saying I know everything but I can tell you at least that this is ********
and go to bed, what the **** .
User avatar #23 to #21 - vatra (03/08/2013) [-]
I'm an insomniac, sleep isn't an option right now.

I study psychology as well, yes I know that the slightest change in condition, be it your surroundings, your internal states, or physical conditions affects your brain's chemical reactions drastically. What I think it is saying, is when you take the reactions purely from the injury and the ignoring, at their base they are rather similar, which I can believe because they are both "pain".
#24 to #23 - broorb (03/08/2013) [-]
all right, fair enough. I'm not up for an intense discussion, but perhaps you're right, yeah.
User avatar #25 to #24 - vatra (03/08/2013) [-]
Yeah, I probably would have given up after this comment if you had had a rebuttal, I'm too tired to think on my feet, and as said earlier, with evidence the debate wouldn't even be necessary. I do enjoy a good debate though, one with logic, reasoning, and respect, that is.
#41 to #25 - broorb (03/08/2013) [-]
Yeah, amen to that. I reckon you and I could have had a decent, respectful debate should we have been up to par on the awakeness front, haha.
User avatar #90 to #41 - vatra (03/08/2013) [-]
Very true!

Deja Vu is caused when there is a split second delay between your eyes seeing the information and your brain processing it causing that image to overlap with the same one (because your still looking at whatever it is) and creating the feeling that you've seen it before

4th one is wrong, Vsauce have done a very interesting video about it though. It is more about the path information takes from your eyes to parts of your brain.

My thoughts on Dejavu
I think that when you die,And you see your life flash before your eyes,That it goes at the same time as your normal life,as if it's replaying your life over and over and over,like a cycle,you always start at the beginning,and getting Dejavu is when you can hit a strong point of the memory.Therefore having Dejavu.
