Deja Vu, but not Deja Vu

Postby raptornx01 » Mon Jul 22, 2013 2:04 pm

Ok, I was watching a video by Vsauce on youtube (excellent and informative stuff, you should check them out) about Deja vu. and what it was and what causes it.

As I'm watching though the question occurs to me, what is it called when you get deja vu, but instead of thinking you've experienced something again what happens is you've seen the event before in a dream?

It's happened my whole life as far as I can remember. dream something, then sometime later it happens. not all the time. and usually it's something minor, but sometimes it can be specific. like seeing a movie before it's existed (and the circumstance which you saw it. like who was there, where, etc). for me games i haven't played yet, or people i haven't met yet. then it happens and usually it's just like the dream.

generally i've never really talked about it, but when I went to ask about it in the comments I kept seeing the same thing again and again and again. reading through there were so many people asking about the same thing.

So i'm curious, anyone here experienced that?

I know the feeling, but for me it's usually minor things, like a conversation.

I usually dream events - although not regularly.

Our old house in London was strange though. Sometimes we'd see events occur via the television, before they happened!
We used to talk about a subject and no one could understand what we were on about. And then sometime later it would happen.
It could take days, weeks, or years, though. We both saw the news update that the actor Herve Vilechaize had shot & killed himself at his home, while his girlfriend was there. Our work colleagues couldn't understand why we refused to believe he wasn't dead - until he did commit suicide 2 days later! :confusion-shrug:

I was doing the washing up last night and thought - whatever happened to Yuri Geller?

Today I checked the BBC iPlayer and there was a TV show about him. :o I believe in you Yuri!

A couple of times I dreamed the winner of the Grand National but, as I don't bet, did nothing. Once I realised this was happening it stopped. I put this down to Sod's Law.....or Murphy's Law.......most of those bookies are Irish anyway :lol:

A work colleague once got me so mad that I briefly wished his chair would break when he sat on it. A couple of days later it did :shock: To say he deserved it (he really did) is no excuse - with great power comes great responsibility. I haven't wished for anything since, to be in the safe side.

Precognition is like that for me, too - almost always something utterly minor, of interest only to me. Sometimes others are affected as well, but my subconscious mind is very self-oriented.

Rather a lot of the time I don't pay enough attention to those little "feelings", e.g. I feel that I should bring a jacket and rationally decide that my summer cotton sweater will be enough, then I get to the place and the A/C is cranked up to counteract body heat of a thousand people and there are only 20 people there and I'm freezing.

:lol: should have wished for a bag of money to fall from the sky. :D

So, all this, It begs the questions then. what is it? How does it work?
