Have you ever experienced a moment when you knew you were seeing something for the first time, yet you have a distinct memory of having seen it before? This has happened to me. I later realized that I had dreamed about it.
I’ve also been in situations where I could tell who was going to speak next and what they were going to say. It’s as if I’ve heard the exact conversation before. Sometimes it’s like I can hear the whole conversation in my head a couple of sentences ahead of what’s being said at that moment.
So, am I dreaming about the future and I just don’t realize it until later? Why do I keep getting such strong feelings of deja vu? It’s like: I’ve been here before, in this exact spot, talking to these people, watching this happen…
Sometimes my experience is so much like my dream that I wonder when I’ll wake up.
