I wonder: why the effect of deja vu occurs
Probably, each of us experienced the feeling that this situation was already happening. We were here, tried it, heard similar sounds and so on. This mental state is called "deja vu". Back in 1857, Emil Bouarak tried to convey to people and explain the whole process. He did research for a long time, even wrote a book, but did not fully define the phenomenon of deja vu. Until today, scientists are trying to unravel this phenomenon. They conduct experiments, investigate the hippocampus (part of the brain), but they cannot say for sure: is this a prediction or a fantasy? Each of the professors, researchers, puts forward his own opinion and vision of this process, but basically they are different, and no one really understands what actually happens to people. For example, some believe that this is a natural phenomenon, forcing to experience the same events to achieve a certain goal. Others suggest that deja vu is the gift of foresight. Still others argue that this is just a form of schizophrenia.
Why does the deja vu effect occur?
There are cases when a person experiences the same situation. It would seem, where could I come across this? Maybe I saw it in a dream? But not so simple. In fact, this is our mental state. Why does the deja vu effect occur? What can provoke him? How to react to it? Psychologists think that the reason for everything is the change in the way the brain encodes time. You should not be afraid of it. To make it clearer, our brain creates a situation in which two times intertwine: the past and the present. We experience them simultaneously. And as a result, people just go astray, they are overcome by bewilderment, and sometimes fear.
Sleep or reality?
Why does the deja vu effect occur? The assumption “maybe I saw it in a dream” is very true. Sometimes our subconscious mind tries to show us something. It happens that unconscious processing of information leads to the fact that in life a person experiences everything exactly like in a dream. Due to the fact that people are faced with the events that they once dreamed of, the brain successfully recognizes information and models it. The feeling of déjà vu has long been considered a sign of a mentally ill person.Such people could easily be placed in the hospital and tried to “cure” for a long time. Today, this can happen to each of us and most people are completely healthy. Therefore, do not be afraid and panic, just your brain played a cruel joke with you.
Study the effect of deja vu
The study of the processes of the brain long ago, but mental deviations (at that time it was thought so) did not pay attention. Why does the deja vu effect occur? In 1878, it was suggested that human fatigue was to blame for everything, and the processes in the brain simply go astray under its influence. Opponents of this theory, on the contrary, argued that this phenomenon is the result of a good rest of the individual, and at the same time the brain. So why the deja vu effect? Unfortunately, today there is no definite answer to this question. It remains only to wait for the next achievements of science.
