Sometimes we feel that what is happening right now has been done or seen before. What is the reason?

By Sunil Kumar

Psychologists and pop culture refer to this phenomenon as “deja vu”.

Scientists reject any notion of any supernatural explanation of precognition.

Neurologists probably relate this to “temporal lobe” epilepsy. In a book I read recently by Arun Shourie “Two Saints”; his claim was that most religious figures around the world and their miracles were merely hallucinations caused due to affliction in the brain’s temporal lobe.

Of course if you want to believe “religion”; then go right ahead. Indian religions will attribute it to past karma and other traditions in the world may attribute it to God’s intervention or angels etc.

Take your pick. Nobody can claim to know the real reason behind different phenomena. The truth is still out there.
