01.23 – 07.05 – 08.05 – 13.45 – 16.20 – 20.20 – 22.22
These are a list of times… Times of the day which I see at least twice, everyday. And when I do see them, it’s always a déjà vu moment having seeing them again. Which gets you thinking… What is déjà vu? Why do we have these déjà vu moments?
If anyone has seen the classic “Groundhog Day” starring Bill Murray, then this explains exactly how I feel when I wake up to 7.05am most mornings with no intentions in waking up. Or, when I do try to snooze, I wake up exactly an hour later on 8.05am.
If you haven’t seen it maybe you should watch it… It’s a pretty awesome film! Groundhog Day
8.20pm or “20.20”, 10.22pm or “22.22”… it’s just seeing two of the same numbers that send shivers down my spine. ESPECIALLY, let’s say, when you have to pay something for the price of £22.22… i.e. a McDonalds at the time of 22:22 (note: I haven’t actually spent that much but how much of a coincidence would that be?!)
Essentially, howstuffworks.com states this
“The term déjàvu is French and means, literally, “already seen.” Those who have experienced the feeling describe it as an overwhelming sense of familiarity with something that shouldn’t be familiar at all” – howstuffworks.com
And as long as I keep having these “overwhelming sense of familiarity”, I will always have déjà vu moments.
Here’s a video of Michael from the VSauce youtube channel on “What is déjà vu?”. His videos are always so over the top and so captivating!
Well, not much to say on this post.
ta ta for now.
