Exactly.

Many, many years ago, I thought that everyone experienced deja vu, dreamed about their possible past lives, and had some idea of what was going to happen next. Apparently not.
thank you, I'm so glad to have met someone who does remember....



I believe Deja vu, is cell memory...you know how a dog circles and circles and then finally lays down...they say that is cell memory, from when the wild wolves circled and laid down for the night, so that they were either upwind or downwind....? So if that's true, then Deja Vu might be the same thing.

#2 theory. Deja vu experiences are triggered via the collective unconsciousness, therefore, it's not really your memory but that of someone else, living or dead, who previously experienced it.

I like both, and believe its probably both
"Psychologists who study memory point out that we have memories for things that have happened to us, and also memory for where we encountered the things that happened to us. That memory for where we encountered information is called source memory."....
"A paper by Anne Cleary, Anthony Ryals, and Jason Nomi in the December, 2009 issue of Psychonomic Bulletin and Review suggests one factor that leads to the experience. They had people study a number of drawings of scenes. Later, they were shown a number of new scenes and were asked whether they had seen them before. Some of those new scenes had a similar configuration to ones they had studied earlier, but all of the objects were different. For example, during the first phase of the experiment, people might have seen an alley between a fence and a building. Later, they might have seen an alley between a train station and a train. In this case, people often felt that the new scene was familiar, and participants often reported a strong feeling that they had seen the new scene before."

YMMV

I get it, and often I know when and where it was that it happened before.

I have experienced this in my 29 years of life - maybe once a year or so. What gets me is the feeling I get when it happens - you know, the feeling of it already happening before...
Only once or twice but one time...we did a lot of beer, weed and to this day don't know what it was, we guess mescaline . Went to the movies and saw a nature film called The Wonder of it All...I was describing scenes right before they came on...my friends would say...when did you see this before? I had never seen it but kept describing scenes, even narrative before it came on. At the time, it was like I know I saw this before...but how could I have?

See I view the dog circling differently and really do believe it is from Genetic memory but not from Deja vu.

Thousands of years ago, dogs, actually most animals who lived in the wild, had to lay upwind so that while they were sleeping, if a predator came near while they were sleeping their nose would pick up the scent, and they'd awaken.
Dont know how anyone would know what goes on in a dogs mind - however close they are to their dog. I heard it was to make a bed in the grass so they are not laying on the bare ground. All these are human interpretations of a doggy mindset.

As others have said previously, if everything is happening now, then 'previous' lives are also happening now. Some people theorize that we, as a spirit, can focus our attention or awareness into different points in time and experience different 'realities' or lifetimes in order to learn different experiences. Like you are looking down at a movie film and focusing on one frame(being a lifetime). Maybe dejavu is focusing on a different part of the movie for an instant?

One particular moment was when I was with an ex bf, that I found senario everything was too familiar even the clothes he was wearing, I surely had dreamt of the scenario way before even I knew the ex.. Totally unexplainable and spooky. I also noticed such deja vu stops to happen if not rarely as you get older.

I don't find them spooky. My brain is nearly always on. I may be asleep, but my brain is still recording.

I once lived in France with my French Fiance who barely spoke two words of English. Needless to say it was an interesting and funny conversation trying to get her to understand what I meant when I asked her what do they call déjà vu in French, but in French.

Because "déjà vu" literally means "already seen", she didn't know what the hell I was talking about, LOL.
