For the second time in less than two weeks, I’m having a major case of deja vu. Weirdest thing ever.
Today, it was when I was entering my many-great grandmother’s information into a genealogy website. I know I’ve never done it before, except that as I did it, as I looked at her name and her dates and the name of the website, I felt like I had. That I’d done this before.
It happened last week when I was moving my office and again a couple of weeks ago too, when I was writing a scene in my current WIP. I was writing it for the first time, but it felt like I’d already done it.
I don’t know what to make of it, but it really is weird.
I’ve read that scientists think deja vu is the result of frontal lobe seizures, but I’m pretty certain I’m not having one right now. I’ve also read that it’s the result of partial wish fulfillment. Eh. Maybe. But then, how to explain the dream I had over two years ago that I actually experienced last week?
I can’t explain it, but I know it’s weird.
Have you ever had deja vu, and what do you think it is?
