Recall a dream

04 Dec 03
I had a dream last night. Somehow, the dream seemed familiar. I was cycling to the edge of a sandy enclave. I parked my bicycle against the rock outcrop, and walked towards the shore. There is a tiny island close to the shore that all visitors come from afar to see. There was someone that I was expecting. The memory fades from here... I remember some photo-taking but that is all.

My dreams are always so surreal. There was another dream where I was in a swimming pool. although I was at the centre of the pool, the water was solid and unfrozen. It made no logic, yet there's this inexplicable sense of unattainability, which lurks in most, if not all of my dreams.

There are also occasions too many when a sense of deja'vu engulfs me at a particular location or incident. Sometimes certain slices of life just seem so very familiar, until I realize that I've experienced it in one of my dream or a series of recurrent dreams. Is it just me?

I wonder.

pay careful attention to your dreams, one of these days, the deja vu feelings may be crucial

LOL the way you said it, it's so funnie! LOL

Yeah, yeah maybe the dreams have some crucial 4D numbers which you probably missed!

*glares at darkseed73* oi!! it was supposed to be serious! cross my heart!

care to elaborate? I'm curious.

Yeah baby, I get that feeling of deja vu too! :)

A chemical Explanation

I read somewhere that Deja-Vu is a chemical reaction by the brain.
It results due to some 'short circuit' , where what we are experiencing is placed in the compartment of the brain we consider as "Past memories" instead of short term/long term memories.

When we place incoming information as 'past memories' due to this 'circuitory problem' for a short while, we tendto presume whatever is happening in real time as something we experienced before. (Our brain works at lightning speed, so the delay in storage and retrieval from 'past memory' is so rapid we don't sense the delay - hence DE JA VU.)

Some tidbits for reference.

Re: A chemical Explanation

Very possibly, actually.
The scary thing comes with interactions with people. Like knowing a person's likes and etc etc.... to the extent that you realise that you know too much of a person.


hmmm!!! Try Meditation maybe

hmm, maybe u want to try meditation for 15mins before u go to sleep.
U will sleep better that way. Oh well, at least u still got time to sleep and dream, hehe. I hardly have any sleep due to so many assignments to hand in. ok back to studies!!!

Re: hmmm!!! Try Meditation maybe

I can't. I doze off almost immediately when my head touches the pillow!
