You can make anyone experience déjà vu by modulated a magnetic field over the
right temporal lobe. This suggest that the brain is using time references for
data analysis. I do not remember the frequency, but as a guess it was around 15
hertz. Randomly, since you are a limited inferior biochemical computer, time
phase errors occur. Data goes into short term memory but is not strong enough to
generate a conscious phase lock for that information. The data comes in again
slight out of time phase and you have the conscious experience of both. One as a
subharmonic of the main gaussian wavelet stimulation and the memory opponent
wavelet. With a wavelet system only small pieces of match up are necessary to
stimulate a whole memory. Technically speaking the memory can be a composite
or creative memory suggesting a feeling of precognition, when in fact our memory
are remarkable good. For example, our visual memory is very good even 70 years
later. Locations are similar enough to stimulate a holographic memory from the
past which could be interpreted as déjà vu.
About 98% of the people experience déjà vu. It is the experience of déjà vu
that convinces the average person that ESP phenomenon is real and should be
investigated by psychologist. About 89% of the psychologist checking out déjà
vu as a ESP phenomenon report that the effort is a waste of there time and there
is NOTHING important to the déjà vu phenomenon.
Actually the reports can be interpreted as supporting a more global model of how
the brain works. Namely a wavelet associational reciprocal inhibition, or
correlational opponent processing model of how the brain works.
