    I have really weird Deja Vu sometimes.

    I'll have it, then remember having the exact same Deja Vu before, and know a split second before it's said, what the next sentence will be. But I've never ever ever been in a situation close to it before. So how can I have had that Deja Vu before, and now again, when this is my first ever time being in this situation. Does that make sense?

    And no, it's nothing to do with weed. I get it just as often when I'm clean as stoned. Plus weed has no effect on my thoughts these days.

    Proper shits me up sometimes.

    No, I've had Deja Vu of Deja Vu before...

    I'm gonna be boring and tell you what causes Deja Vu -

    Basically, it's when your brain makes a fileing error..

    It's when your brain stores the information for what is happening here and now in a part of the long term memory rather than the short term memory, meaning that it occurs to you that what is happening is something which happened at some point in the past rather than just a second ago, because the information is coming from a part of your brain that you usually only draw past events from...

    Hence when you have a Deja Vu of a Deja Vu, the reason that this happens is bacause you realise that you're having a Deja Vu when this begins to happen, but then it continues to happen so that the Deja Vu is sent to the long term memory also, so that makes you have the feeling that of having the same Daja Vu before...

    Totally normal though, happens to everyone, weed smoker or not, and usually when you're tired... Dont usually last more than a few seconds...

    How does my brain gather information twice, even though it's never happened at all?

    Where does it get the info from to store in the first place?

    It's usually something pointless I get it about, in a not very special situation.

    I've been experiencing some weird things too recently.

    Such as a few months ago, I thought to myself, "I havn't had a wispa in years". A week later, I see a Wispa in my local co-op.

    "Havn't heard that tune in time". Go into a shop and it's playing.

    Just loads of things like that.

    Happening more and more frequently.

    It doesn't gather information twice, it just gathers it once then puts it in the wrong place so that you think it's old information, giving you the feeling that you're getting it twice

    How do you know all of that?

    I love deja vu. Another crazy thing that happened to me a while ago, I was walking down the road and saw someone I thought I recognised, and then realised they looked a bit like me. I wanted to go and tell her, I managed to hold it back.

    I did Psychology at uni...

    I used to know a guy at school who looked just like me, we avoided each other for years as it was a mental co-incidence... Finally got chatting one day and he turned out to be proper safe!

    Yeah to be fair there's several different theories about Deja Vu (as with everything in Psychology!), the one I've given is just the one that I personally (or more to the point, the people who taught me) subscribe too... There's really no difinite answers in Psychology, it's all just theories!

    Oh, I wondered because I did some psychology at uni too, it seemed like a bit of a random thing for you to just know!

    It's interesting though, it always makes me feel like I'm psychic.

    Like I said, it's only a theory...

    I'm sure there's some more mystical explanations out there...

    Glitch in the Matrix (when they've changed something) is a contender...
