Déjà vu

February 9, 2021 February 2021 No Comments

Déjà vu, which translates as ‘already seen,’ was coined by the 19th century French philosopher Emile Boirac  who was the president of Dijon University but spent most of his time doing experiments with clairvoyance and mysticism . 

He believed that déjà vu was due to emotions, thinking that if you had the same emotions in two different situations then you might accidently confuse the two.

Current best theory is that it’s your brain doing a quick memory stock check. When you are in a situation similar to one in the past your brain gets confused and send signals of similarity , along with a feeling of unease. 

Researchers  say that it is a good sign indicating that your facilities are in full working order.
