personal experiences of self awareness: deja vue

personal experiences of self awareness: deja vue

When I experience deja vue it is not just that I feel like I have done this before. It is usually a completely banal experience, nothing worth noticing, but I feel like I have done it a thousand times, and the last time it happened I was felling deja vue of another time just like this that I felt deja vue. It’s like this infinity mirror sensation. A tunnel into forever. I remember one day as a child in the bathroom noticing that the moment was completely unimportant and that I would forget it as soon as I was finished. I imagined a me 20 years from then not being able to recall it, having no reason to. I felt that that moment didn’t exist because it would disappear. Somehow, 20 years later I remember. It caused me to remember it often when I am in the bathroom. Perhaps I don’t remember the first time, I just remember remembering remembering it.
