This headline reminded me that I was recently wondering about the other "vu" phenomena. I knew there was a term I was looking for in a comment but I couldn't think of it. I thought this article was pretty interesting.

Deja Vu is a normal memory stored with a corrupted time stamp.

The actual time you saw it is when you experienced the anomaly.

I prefer Jamais Vu...

I've only ever experienced deja vu while sober. Has anyone ever experienced it while drunk or high?

This what happens.  Wires get crossed; for some reason you are interpreting what you are experiencing at the moment as a memory.

The Fifth Profession by David Morrell uses jamais vu as a plot point. Pretty good book.

Jamais vu. The sudden feeling that you've never done something before, when doing something familiar. It's basically deja vu in reverse.

My deja vu doesn't fit those patterns because I dream the instance sometimes years before it happens. At first I wouldn't usually remember the dream until the deja vu moment happened, but as I've aged I've learned to note the dreams.

Any dream I have where it's realistic usually becomes a deja vu moment. Sadly, I don't get enough of them with the frequency to do any decent testing. I only have any dream I remember once every few months, then an even smaller subset for the potential "precognitive" dreams on the order of one every few years.

Often it just some simple thing, like the family sitting around the dinner table and the conversation and environment being exactly like the dream. Only once has it been about something important, and the important bits of that moment would not have requred a psychic to see coming.

I do not think it's a psychic phenomena. I think our brains are always subconsciously extrapolating probabilities, and sometimes it bubbles up something we remember. Some more than others.

Can déjà vu predict the future?

No.

More stuff from Michio Kaku.  His basic line seems to be "anything is possible because quantum physics is strange, do why not this derp?"

May have to check it out - thanks!

No, that isn't it. Deja vu is our consciousness failing to integrate external stimuli with our internal model of what's happening quickly enough.

It's like losing mental lip-sync.
