Title: Using Déjà vu as a Catastrophe Survival Skill
Post by: admin on August 30, 2010, 03:36:36 PM

Using Déjà vu as a Catastrophe Survival Skill - Author Marie D. Jones

Is Déjà vu one of those surreal human perceptions that is best ignored?

Or is it a brief peek through an opaque interdimensional doorway, into knowledge that could save your life?

The difference could mean all the difference to you and your loved ones during a catastrophe.

A popular guest on Cut to the Chase, because she's not afraid to take on the big question issues is Marie D. Jones.  Along with co-author Larry Flaxman, her latest work The Déjà vu Enigma: A Journey Through the Anomalies of Mind, Memory and Time offers keen insights into this phenomenon.

The term Déjà vu was first coined by French psychic Émile Boirac in his book L'Avenir des sciences psychiques ("The Future of Psychic Sciences"), published May 1919. Described by Sigmund Freud as an "uncanny" experience, we simultaneously experience a feeling of witnessing or experiencing a new situation as both a past and present event. 

The question then becomes, is this weird oddity in human perception that is best ignored?  Or, is it like standing in front of a kitchen door that swings both ways, where we are faced with a simple decision.  Do we fearfully step back to get out of the way, or do we boldly seize the initiative and step through?  In this interview, Marie D. Jones answers that very question.
