Deja vu is not an illusion, it is something that you have already experienced in your unconscious fantasies. Believe if you will, or do not believe it. This was already mentioned a hundred years ago by the “great and terrible” Freud, and many subsequent studies have only confirmed his hypothesis.
The phenomenon called deja vu is the feeling of something “already experienced” and, according to Freud, is a remembrance of an unconscious fantasy. And since this fantasy is never conscious, during a deja vu moment it is impossible to “recall” something that seems to have been already perceived.
These strange dreams
We begin with a bit of explanation. Along with the conscious fantasies, unconscious fantasies can exist. They are simply called daydreaming. Commonly, they express (more…)
Good or bad experience gained by the father will be inherited by his children and even grandchildren. For example, if a man drowned, it is likely that his son will be afraid of water. And the son of his son too. If he died from fire, some members of the future generations of his family will be afraid of fire. Similarly, the subsequent generations may inherit even love to certain products and activities.
In other words, the offspring can inherit experience acquired by previous generations. In fact, they inherit the memory of those or other events. Nonsense? Not at all. The fact that such a phenomenon exists was proven by biologists of the Yerkes National Primate Research Center at Emory University. (more…)
James Lampinen, professor of psychology from the University of Arkansas, explains that déjà vu is a global phenomenon that makes us believe that we relive something that is actually happening for the first time. This experience can trigger confusion and anxiety and is often accompanied by a sense of removal from reality.
Sigmund Freud, the “father of psychoanalysis”, argued that déjà vu is the result of an unconscious (more…)
Deja vu is a very strange and in some cases even unsettling sensation that always causes some confusion. A certain sound, place, or sentence said by someone is perceived as something familiar and makes it feel like if we had previously found ourselves in this situation.
The first visit to a store which made you think that you have already been there once, or the painfully familiar face of a person you see for the first time are all symptoms of deja vu.
The French term déjà vu can be translated as “already seen.” However, even if we are insistently trying to recall exactly when we saw it, it is impossible. Deja vu is linked to several concepts: (more…)
Deja vu is one of the little-known and mysterious phenomena of our psyche. Many people sometimes feel that a situation in their life has already been experienced before in all the details. But how and when? This phenomenon is called déjà vu, which in French means ‘already seen’. It is a condition in which a person feels that once he already experienced a situation of the present, but the feeling is not associated with a specific moment of the past, but refers to the past in general.
Deja vu is quite common. Psychologists believe that 97 % of people have experienced it at least once. Sometimes people are afraid of deja vu and worry about their mental health. What lies beyond human understanding, always frightens us.
The reasons that cause the phenomenon are still not clear. It might be caused by the processes in the parts of the brain associated with memory and perception. There is a hypothesis that sometimes the perceived information gets to the memory areas sooner than to the area of the primary analysis. Thus, the brain, comparing the situation with its ‘neurocopy’ already received by the memory, concludes that it already happened before. (more…)
