If you are an avid reader of my blog, you might have read a post I wrote on déjà vu, and how there were other types of “vu” that I might explain in the future. Well today’s post introduces the second instalment in the “vu trilogy”; Presque vu. Much like déjà vu, presque vu has a number of theories that try to explain it and a few of them will be highlighted throughout this post.
You’re in a new part of town, having a gentle stroll in the sun. You turn around the corner and suddenly this “new” part of town becomes very familiar. You’ve been here before, you’re sure of it. But you couldn’t have? You’ve never seen this place? Why does it seem so familiar? It’s this feeling that people know as déjà vu. This sensation is where an individual feels like a moment they are currently experiencing has already been experienced before, despite this being the first time. Weird right? So what exactly is going on in that head of yours?
