Have you experienced Déjà vu?
It refers to a state wherein a person feels certain (cognitive judgment) that he or she has previously seen or experienced something that is actually being encountered for the first time.
I already have encountered this state of feeling in the past. There was one instance when we went to place wherein I haven’t been in my life, but I had the feeling that I’ve already seen it but uncertain about the exact circumstances. Last week, I experienced it again when a long time friend called me. It’s been a year or so since we last talk.
Suddenly I just had a feeling that I already talked to her about the same topic, yet it’s impossible because the subject of our conversation was just a recent activity. I do not know, but it might be in one of my dreams, the settings, the time and the topic we were discussing about were very much familiar.
Frankly speaking, I do not want this experience to happen again. The compelling sense of familiarity, the sense of eeriness and strangeness made me uneasy for days. The feeling that I already done something even though I didn’t yet, is so weird.
On the contrary, I was thinking this might just be because I did the same action in the past or I thought that I already did somethingJ.
