What is Deja Vu

The term déjà vu 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. Say, for example, you are traveling to new place for the first time and when you get there suddenly it seems as if you have been in that very spot before, felt like you know the place better. It's so strange isn't? In the déjà vu experience, however, we feel strange because we don't think we should feel familiar with the present perception. That sense of inappropriateness is not present.

The psychologist Edward B. Titchener in his book A Textbook of Psychology, explained déjà vu as caused by a person having a brief glimpse of an object or situation, before the brain has completed "constructing" a full conscious perception of the experience. Such a "partial perception" then results in a false sense of familiarity. Scientific approaches reject the explanation of déjà vu as "precognition" or "prophecy ", but rather explain it as an anomaly of memory, which creates a distinct impression that an experience is "being recalled". As much as 70 percent of the total population of the world reports having experienced some or the other kind of Deja vu experience. This is commonly found in people in the age group of 16 to 25 years. Several psychiatrists have been conducting researches on this topic, and many have found various reasons for the occurrence of these experience. Some attribute it to temporal lobe, while some say it is just an illusion. Many have also reported Deja vu to be an experience of past life.

Since déjà vu occurs in individuals with and without a medical condition, there is much speculation as to how and why this phenomenon happens. Several psychoanalysts attribute déjà vu to simple fantasy or wish fulfillment, while some psychiatrists ascribe it to a mismatching in the brain that causes the brain to mistake the present for the past. Many parapsychologists believe it is related to a past-life experience. Obviously, there is more investigation to be done.

Unique Daily Info : Fun Facts about Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls, city in the Regional Municipality of Niagara, southeastern Ontario, Canada, a port on the Niagara River opposite Niagara Falls, New York. The city overlooks the Horseshoe, or Canadian, Falls cataract of Niagara Falls; the crescent-shaped cataract is 54 M (177 ft) high and carries nine times more water than its United States counterpart. Niagara Falls is an enormously popular tourist destination, and it also serves as a major source of electricity for Ontario.

 

Here let’s check it out fun facts about Niagara Falls :

  • The Falls at Niagara are about 12,000 years old.
  • Niagara Falls is made up of 3 waterfalls : the American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. The 3 waterfalls combine to produce the highest flow rate of any waterfall on earth.
  • Fish travel down the Falls—and about 90% of them survive thanks to the foamy cushion on the way down.
  • The Niagara River flows at approximately 35 miles/hour (56.3 kilometers/hour).
  • 681,750 gallons of water flows over the Horseshoe Falls every second.
  • The first person to ever go over the Falls was a courageous 63-year-old teacher Annie Edson Taylor. She traveled down the Falls in a barrel.
  • About 20% of the fresh water in the United States passes over Niagara Falls.
  • The word Niagara comes from the word "onguiaahra" which means "a thundering noise".
  • About 28,000,000 (that’s 28 million!) liters of water travel down Niagara Falls every second.
  • Niagara Falls is not the highest waterfall in the world. There are actually about 500 waterfalls that are taller than Niagara. It’s actually the combination of height and large volume of water that makes Niagara Falls a great tourist destination.
  • Although Niagara Falls isn’t the tallest waterfall in the world, it may be the fastest moving waterfall on the planet.
  • Niagara Falls is the result of glaciers. (Niagara Falls was created by glacier activity around 10,000 years ago).
  • Niagara Falls is the collective name for three water Falls that overlap the international borders of Canada and New York.
  • Parts of the movie Pirates of the Caribbean were filmed at Niagara Falls. Superman and Niagara starring Marilyn Monroe were also filmed at the Falls.
  • At the current rate of erosion, scientists believe that Niagara Falls will be gone in around 50,000 years.
  • The first tightrope walker to cross Niagara Falls did so in 1859. Daredevil Nik Wallenda tempted fate with a highwire crossing of Niagara Falls in June 2012 before an audience of tens of thousands at the Falls and millions more on live TV.
  • You are almost always guaranteed to see a rainbow if you’re on the Canadian side of the Falls. To capture this beautiful phenomenon be sure grab your camera and visit from about noon until the sun sets.
  • Fish actually travel over the Falls. Don’t believe it? Visit the Cave of the Winds for $10. This place will prove the fact and you might even meet someone who has actually been struck by a fish on his journey down the Falls.
  • Approximately 90% of the fish that travel down Niagara Falls survive. It is believed that the white foam from the rushing waters acts like a cushion for the fish traveling down the waters.
  • Back in the 1800’s Niagara Falls was nearly frozen solid. The water was so frozen that only a small trickle of water traveled down the Falls.
  • About 20% of the drinking water in the United States goes through and over Niagara Falls. Yup, you have most likely drank water that came from the Falls.
  • Falls were formed when melting glaciers formed massive fresh-water lakes (the Great Lakes) one of which (Lake Erie) ran downhill toward another (Lake Ontario). The rushing waters carved out a river in their descent and at one point passed over a steep cliff like formation (the Niagara escarpment). From the original falls going over the Niagara Escarpment, the water began to wear its way back up the river. The path that it left is known today as the Niagara Gorge (a deeply-cut and very scenic river path).
