one day, when you start working in a big shot design firm, you will have dreams of photographing yourself photoshopping your photograph of yourself photographing yourself photoshopping your photograph of yourself photographing...etc..ad infinitum

and won't that be fun ? ;)

I'm not aware of any awareness.

I don't recall having any sense of smell in my dreams. However I have been woken from a deep sleep by Eau de That Was Dog.

*question*

do you ever get deja vu?


I get deja vu of having had deja vu of having had deja vu in an infinite regression. does this happen to anyone else?

Stephi_B 10-22-2007 11:49 AM

Yes, and yes also such nested ones. One was after me over several years, though you couldn't ask me now what it was exactly. It was a combination of many things: time of the day, place, voices, succession of a conversation... though I forgot till the next deja-vu of the deja-vu of the deja-vu...

But I don't have them so often today, as kid and teenie I had them a lot.
Maybe deja-vus correlate somehow with the amount of imagination one has? :confused:

Frieda 10-22-2007 12:39 PM

yes, it happens to me too

T.I.P. 10-22-2007 12:47 PM

i've noticed i get déjà-vus at pivotal moments in my life.
These pivotal moments usually occur after moments of great activity, hence a lack of sleep, hence the déjà-vus

Just the same, i've learned to pay attention when i get a déjà-vu - it's like a signal that tells me something important is happening or about to happen.

^Yeah, I get it more often when there are intense things going on, too...
What's that about? :confused: :)

auntie aubrey 10-22-2007 05:28 PM

sure. i've only gotten the recursive sensation in recent years. the sudden sense that i've experienced the sudden sense that i've experienced this before.

craig johnston 10-22-2007 05:48 PM

and a few others.

Totally, and it's completely paralyzing. Everything feels so...in place and predictable for that moment that it seems wrong to break the spell.

Sorry for the hijacking, but...



I can't resist. :D

lukkucairi 10-22-2007 08:59 PM

^^ oh, but it's a good one :D

I got deja vu actually this afternoon, again - the infinite regression kind.

is there such a thing as suggestible deja vu?

and will TIP forgive us for not using the correct accents over the e and a?

:p

brightpearl 10-22-2007 09:24 PM

^yes, as long as we all remember to hold our forks correctly.
:D

neither here nor there:

Déjà vécu

Usually translated as 'already lived,' déjà vécu is described in a quotation from Charles Dickens:
“We have all some experience of a feeling, that comes over us occasionally, of what we are saying and doing having been said and done before, in a remote time – of our having been surrounded, dim ages ago, by the same faces, objects, and circumstances – of our knowing perfectly what will be said next, as if we suddenly remember it!”

When most people speak of déjà vu, they are actually experiencing déjà vécu. Surveys have revealed that as much as 70% of the population have had these experiences, usually between ages 15 to 25, when the mind is still subjectable to noticing the change in environment. The experience is usually related to a very ordinary event, but it is so striking that it is remembered for several years afterwards.

Déjà vécu refers to an experience involving more than just sight, which is why labeling such "déjà vu" is usually inaccurate. The sense involves a great amount of detail, sensing that everything is just as it was before and a weird knowledge of what is going to be said or happen next.
