Someone told me once...

That's the HighDEA that reminded me of a long-lost HighDEA of my own.

Ok, so you're going about your day, and out of nowhere, BAM. You get caught up in a random "Déjà vu". After it's 'over', most people just say "Woah" and go on with their day. As high as I was at the time, however, I took the time to think of this, instead: What if we had already done everything we're doing now, but our brains, being mostly locked to us, can only comprehend time at a slower speed, and Déjà vu is a random moment in time where the brain remembers being a part of the Déjà vu event previously? In Layman's terms, we've already done whatever it is we're doing RIGHT NOW, but it was a while back. Déjà vu is us "catching up with real events, instead of real [time]."

I hope this isn't too close to someone else's theory.

He's pretty much right. By the time your eyes take in what your seeing and your brain translates the signals and puts them together in your head, 8/10ths of a second has gone by. Basically, when you see something, your brain takes almost an entire second to process it, so what you're seeing has happened in the past. With that being said, Deja Vu may be your brain catching up to your eyes, giving you the feeling that you've been there before.

my theory is that we done it or something similar to it in a dream.

what if the universe infinitely repeated itself in every dimension.
and you're remember a past life

or repeating the events of one your lives in another dimension at the same time

Or someone traveling in time altered the time line and it is two separate moments splitting off from each other creating two different realities..

I am so stoned, and that was wonderful. Thanks for a good chilling highdea man.

Maybe we're just an elaborate computer program so precise and incomprehensible, and deja vu is a glitch in the program.

Okay, I guess that's from the Matrix but who knows!

yea, i like to think that deja vu is when outer stimulus significantly matches whats in your head. like a memory or a thought. When they match, you get a feeling of, "ive been here before."

Fri, 03/08/2013 - 5:38pm

what if we are riding along with the expansion of the universe in real-time, all of us experiencing the newest version of every event. i believe deja vu is just a pattern we observe in our experiences, but has no supernatural significance.

Woah, nice. Like our consciousness has a slower processing speed than our brain? Cool idea man. I had a case of deja vu the other day that was different from most others in that I could SWEAR I had dreamt of the exact scenario before. It was a real mindfuck lol

Recently I had déjà vu that really freaked me out! My friend told me about how his daughter had to be taken to the hospital and I would have sworn he already told me this happened. I even remembered each detail as he told me! At first I was like why would he tell me this again he's lying about this and using this story again! But then I found out it was true so somehow maybe in a dream? I knew it was going to happen because I'd already seen it. This isn't the first time something like this had happened to me but i knew more about this than other déjà vu moments. My sister gets them too.

deja vu I think would be better understood if you see it like this

Imagine u are an author and you just finished writing a book about the full life of a man.In which you tell his whole life story from birth to death and all events in his life in great detail. You then became trapped in that book and were forced to live out that life. So deja vu would be you the author recalling an event in your story.

Deja vu is like this;

while we live life with sensory input about in our 3D life world, we are at more than this One place, at all times.

We are also in Patterns in our mind, like different Vibes, I know you know what I mean some of u, that people have different vibes they hold unto, or change them, or use it as their Personality, because they HAVE those things on their mind, like Lessons they ened to learn..
Because that's the point - to grow - to learn more about ourselves.

This is actually Frequency, in form of electricity that we are Wirelessly transmitting to eachother all the time.

What the point is this, The Majority of the world is not aware of this.

So we often walk around in the Exact same Patters all the time, Loops! Or we have certain favorites that we come back to, just because of habit - and of course, lack of certainty in understanding about the world.

So when we get into a certain Vibe we have been inside of before, it will Repeat itself, literally - and the environment always Match up to this frequency on the Otherside, so that there will always be a Reality out here in 3D

so who came first the chicken or the egg? doesnt really matter tho

What matters is this;

We are able to learn the patterns, and when we start seeing this from a higher perspective, we can literally choose these Vibrations and Ride them freely sa we want!

No more caging and reliving the same dream over and over again..

this is also why our memories are locked away from us at times, because we need to ride the certain frequency to easily acces the Signs (memories) we put up at the side of the road along the way!

Oh no dude don't talk about this it gets me tripping! Once when I was little I had a dream of playing in my room with my brother then the next day the EXACT same shit happened in real life!

And think about this, sure we think we have 'free will' but no matter what you do whatever you decided is what you did, how do we know there was ever an alternative. It seems like there is but how do we ever know if everything isn't AAAAHHH!! :P

It is like we are behind reality but still in the present.. Or something. lol

Sun, 03/10/2013 - 1:40pm

What if we are at the exact age in which we died in another life when Deja Vu happens.

Samus Says:

That is cool! But now you owe me a brain. :P

Sun, 03/10/2013 - 2:42pm

A short period of time where our brains lose oxygen, and we essentially process the events slower. Like thinking about .5 seconds late. Actual medical reason

Sun, 03/10/2013 - 3:27pm

The whole free will thing is trippy. I have been in déjà vu before and thought, "oh shit I'm in a déjà vu I need to do something different to stop something bad from happening or change the course of events" but then the "different" thing I did was still the thing I did in my déjà vu moment. It didn't even matter that I noticed it and tried to change it. I still did what the universe wanted me to...

Sun, 03/10/2013 - 4:14pm
Samus Says:

Yeah thats what I am saying! Like it doesn't matter if you try change it because whatever you do will be what happened.... That is actually really scary because it means that there is no free will and all of time is either set out or already happened..? Spooky.. Time must not exist how humans perceive it to be.

Sun, 03/10/2013 - 5:51pm

This is crazy man. I made a HighDea about this and credited you. Its called "What is Life?"

Mon, 03/11/2013 - 12:44am

yeah my brain just thunked its way out of thinking...
