    Please review the posting rules, paying particular attention to the part about personal theories and speculation.


    It is highly likely that this thread will disappear with little or no warning. In addition, concern that personal theories about things such as deja vu will be stolen and used by others are generally misplaced. When expressed, such concerns are sometimes regarded as negative indicia. See, for example, http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/crackpot.html

    Honestly your topic doesn't fit into any physics category. De'ja vu is a psychological occurrence, unless you are referring to biochemical processes which falls under biology or medical sciences.

    I've got this feeling that I've read this same thread before ... I just can't put my finger on it.

    Welcome to the PF.

    jbriggs has given you some good advice -- please be sure to read the links he's provided to you.

    Also, keep in mind that the PF is a mainstream scientific website. We discuss mainstream science as presented in peer-reviewed scientific journals and standard textbooks. If you find material in those sources that discusses the deja vu topic, you can link to those sources and ask specific questions about that material. We do not accept the popular press, blogs, etc., as valid sources for scientific discussion here.

    The thread is closed.

    Here is a starting point for your reading: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deja_vu

    Please also follow the references and links out of that article to find more information and reading. As I said, it you have specific questions about that reading (scientific questions, not philosophical ones), please start a new thread in the appropriate forum here with your specific questions. :smile:
