Deja Vu Explained
Before writing any of this I should probably point out that
there are 2 explanations here. The first is a semi-scientific
one and the second is a mad theories one. I just didn't want
anyone reading the first and thinking I'd gone all normal
The first one is a combination of an idea by Trev and Tam
Web Design from the Cre8asite
Deja-vu is caused when your brain tries to store a short term
memory about a particular situation, but another memory uses
the same brain path and they corrupt each other.
You therefore only have part of a memory stored so when a
second later your brain compares that corrupt memory to this
situation it assumes the corrupt memory was old and therefore
you've been in this situation sometime ago even though in
reality it was only a second ago.
This also explains why you're the only person who has deja-vu
at that time.
Mad theories explanation:
If we take the parallel universe idea - what you're experiencing
when you get deja-vu is a situation that happened to "you"
in a nearby parallel universe which you somehow connect to
The people around you don't get the feeling because they
haven't made contact with the copies of themselves at that
exact moment and therefore the moment is completely new to
Since the deja vu is caused by the non-connectability of
the universes and is therefore not all that clear you can't
quite work out whether it was definitely the same or just
something similar that you "remember"...
Actually same thing explains non-interactive ghosts but thats
Back to mad theories....
