Deja Poo

My last post received an awesome comment about confusing a past real-life event from a game event, and somehow that mixed with all this Matrix talk reminded me of deja vu. Most people I know -- including myself when I was younger -- find deja vu enjoyable. It's certainly an uncanny sensation to feel like you are exactly repeating a past event. But one day it occurred to me that having previously done whatever activity I'm currently engaged in means I'm just wasting my time. Now I hate deja vu, although less than I hate the deja vu scene in the Matrix (so dumb!).

  1. Its definitely a stretch but I always felt that deja vu was us recollecting visions from our dreams that felt familiar. I believe that we dream ever night and a majority of them we do not remember. Our subconscious does all sorts of crazy stuff when we're asleep.

    Now I'm gonna go wikipedia deja vu so that I can read the scientific and more logical explanation.
