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?

it's freaky when you get that meta deja vu for the first time. now I don't think I ever get deja vu without the deja vuity getting wrapped up in its own deja vuness. that convinces me that deja vu is not actually the feeling that something has happened before, but for some reason feels like the feeling that something has happened before.

Are you aware of your sense of smell in your dreams?

for those of you interested in catching up on the state of the art in dream science, there are a number of interesting articles in today's online NYT science section

thank you for your kind assistance in these matters and post a new ¿ question of the day ? while you're at it

T.I.P. 10-23-2007 06:32 AM

you're absolutely right it's intolerable all this blahblahblahing around here after the day is done.

I have just the question to set things straight:

¿ Is there a sequence of events (3 or more) that you repeat every day in exactly the same order, in which each gesture has been repeated so many times that it is now reduced to a minimalist expression of perfection ?

T.I.P. 10-23-2007 06:53 AM

No. But almost every workday I ask other people to perform a sequence of three actions. Then I give them a score according to how well they perform.

There is a sequence: crawling out of bed (i.e. mattress) - turning on radio - making coffee - searching ciggies/ashtray/lighter - sitting cross-legged in my green armchair (but turned by 90° so I have the ashtray on the armrest in front of me) - having the ritual c&c with music.
Unfortunately the minimalist, perfect flow is too often disturbed by morning-clumsiness-induced spilling of coffee on the way from the kitchen... though if I include that into the sequence... then: yes :)

brightpearl 10-23-2007 07:19 AM

^oh yes
the coffee-spilling is the wabi-sabi that qualifies it as perfection!

"turned by 90° so I have the ashtray on the armrest in front of me" is exactly the perfection i was talking about ;)

Timing the making of oatmeal and coffee such that they are ready and beep at the EXACT same time that the dog wants back in.

T.I.P. 10-23-2007 10:34 AM

open front door, remove coat and walk three steps, press the computer ON button with, rotate 170° and three steps back to fill a pot with water/turning on the electric stove, go to wash hands in lavatory, come back to type administrative password that is appearing on a prompt screen that has appeared on computer at that exact moment, walk back to refrigerator, remove vegetables,..etc..

[continue this kind of sequence until sleep]
