The Reality of Time

Déjà vu

You see someone, or go somewhere new, and within the first few seconds you suddenly realize that this person or place looks very familiar. This is when your conscious mind assumes that it could only be the result of some inexplicable phenomenon, as you have never met this person – or been to this place before.  In reality what happened here was that in those first few seconds, “human time” of your conscious mind, your subconscious mind experienced it in ‘atomic-time’, which is like hours in relation to a few seconds in your conscious mind. It literally had almost all the time in the world to analyze the data present at the scene. Your subconscious mind, for various reasons, became excited about this specific scene and then unintentionally starts to spills some of this information over to your conscious mind, which in turn interprets it as familiar ground. Keep in mind that our actual physical moment is way ahead of our moment of awareness. Because the subconscious mind was excited by a specific scene, it will jump the queue with this data like an excited little boy, passing this data on to the conscious mind as a subliminal moment. Moments later, when you experience the actual conscious moment, but for a second time, you will be left totally confused.

Stand in a queue to buy a movie ticket and when you’re sixth in line, quickly jump the queue, buy a ticket and get back in line. When you get to buy your second ticket, don’t be amazed at the confused look on the cashiers face.

As such let’s now define Deja Vu

Déjà vu is nothing other than a moment of awareness jumping the queue only to reappear moments later.

Without being able to explain this through conscious behavior, your conscious mind comes to the conclusion that it could only be because you have met this person before – or been in a certain place before. Depending on your knowledge about evolution, it might even be perceived as an experience from a previous lifetime (reincarnation). Although reincarnation most certainly exists, this experience is quite different from how information from a previous life is revealed.

The very first humans who experienced déjà vu would also have been puzzled by this experience. Eventually as humans became more intelligent, someone suddenly had a “eureka” moment. He figured that if he had never visited the place in his experience, it must be that one returns one way or the other after death, and so the seed of reincarnation was born, or rather the realization thereof.
