The Déjà Vu Phenomenon

Another Space Time Paradox

     It was a Saturday morning when a couple of students met at an Internet cafe for some fancy named coffee drinks. One of them was James, an undergraduate student who had met the previous afternoon with Professor Wishbone, to decide on researching and writing a thesis paper on the phenomenon of Déjà Vu. The other student was a graduate assistant named Greg, who was there to do some of his own research as well as provide assistance to James.

     James: “For my thesis paper this fall, I plan to find whatever I can about Déjà Vu, and even explore some new theories that may have been overlooked by the scientific community. Let me show you some of my notes taken from an informal discussion with Wishbone last night.

     Greg: “Jimmy, please proceed; since time travel paradoxes have always intrigued me. I am anxious to see what you have.”

     At this point in time James had flipped open his laptop and brought up the following video clip shown by Wishbone. Obviously this was a crude, yet creative scientific version of Déjà Vu, conjured up by creative Hollywood sci-fi writers. In the segment shown, the bending of space time, theories of wormholes and parallel universes are all part of the equation.


     The next image shown was found by Jimmy after doing some minor Internet research. Jimmy then relayed how over %70 of people have had this experience—especially younger folks. It’s like going on an instantaneous time travel journey through a wormhole, he stated. He went on to say, “Most head shrinks maintain it’s nothing more than a mental fluke. That is, our mind does a bate and switch which causes us to think we were previously in a situation we never were in. It’s all mental contortions”

     Greg: “If any of this is to hold water, I believe our spirit has to temporarily leave our body behind; since we are still mortal beings of flesh and bones. That way we can momentarily transcend spacetime, and overcome gravitational and energy forces, and ever matter. As of yet I don’t believe God’s laws allow for this paradox in our current physical state.”

     James: “Good observation. However, other scientist give credence to the theory of reincarnation—an experience that already occurred in a past life. I deject this hypothesis on account that those that support it maintain that the surroundings they were suddenly interjected into at that point in time were modern and current, which leads me to believe they couldn’t have known of modern things during those times. Yet some will reason that this is proof of forward time travel from those past days.”

     Greg: “So what do you propose for your thesis paper, Jimmy? You seem to have your hands, . . . or shall I say head full.”

     James: “As of yet, I feel I’ll have to do a lot more research, before I can come up with something conclusive. However, during my research I hope to uncover some repetitive method of forward time travel. If I could just get a glimpse of some significant future event. For instance, the state of the stock market, or the winner of a major sport event, or the impending incursion of some catastrophic disaster.”

     Greg: “Well Jimmy, I think I’ve peeped your whole card: You can make some big dollars if you could place winning bets prior to those stock market and sport events. How shrewd you are.”

     James: “Why not make some bucks along the way. Huh Greg?”

Einstein-Rosen Bridge

Worm Holes

     During one of Wisenheirmer’s classes, he open up for questions regarding theoretical wormholes. It followed the lecture given by Dr. Chad Chandler, notable Cosmologist from MIT, on Black Holes.

     Professor Wisenheirmer began by asking, “How many of you here believe Wormholes are possible?” Seventeen out of the class of twenty-five raised their hands.

     “Not to embarrass any of you who did not respond, “What are your objections to this hypothesis?”

     An undergraduate freshmen stood and said, “I don’t believe in them because there seems to be no reliable scientific proof that they exist. Not to be contentious, but I believe it is nothing more than scientific conjecture. Pure science fiction, if you will.”

     “What you say is well founded,” responded the professor. “There are many things in this Universe that we still don’t completely comprehend as of yet. Take for instance, near death experiences and/or out of body experiences. According to a Gallup poll, approximately eight million Americans claim to have had a near-death experience. Plus it is estimated that there are many more who’ve never come forward for fear of ridicule. I’m sure most of you, if not all of you, have heard tales of folks traveling through a tunnel where a white light appears at the end. The following slide is being displayed in anticipation of your concern.”


     “Although not absolutely verifiable according to traditional scientific methods, there are many scientist, including myself, that lean toward the Wormhole hypothesis. In fact, there is the hypothetical topological Einstein-Rosen bridge, a feature of spacetime that would fundamentally be a “shortcut” through spacetime. It was hypothesized by Albert Einstein and his colleague Nathan Rosen, who first published the result in 1935. The following animation shows an artist conception taken from survivors of near deaf experiences.


     “It is my contention,” Wisenheirmer continued, “these are Wormholes that connect to the eternal realm. That is, completely outside this Universe, but into the third heaven. In turn some have testified about going to hell through similar experiences. In many instance there are cases of meeting with deceased relatives, angelic beings, Jesus, and so forth. Most of the time they are told to return, because their time is not up yet.

     Just then, a seasoned sophomore raised up and asserted, “I still don’t see how all this is possible. Won’t anything going into the Singularity of the Wormhole be crushed by extreme gravitational forces?”

     “Anything, yes,” responded the professor, “However, we are referring to spirits here. Spirits in their travel through a hole are not affected by gravitational pulls, nor matter, nor electromagnetic forces. Distances through space, and the time it takes to travel those distances are instantaneous relative to our time. It’s all relative, as Einstein would say.”



     “So here they are: those two chalk talk fanatics, Albert Einstein and his colleague Nathan Rosen. Two God gifted Jews.

     “This is another subject to chew on. Think it through and form your own decision, but during your analysis try to formulate your theories based on as much scientific fact as possible. Maybe you will one day discover a scientific breakthrough as these two heavy weights. There is still a great deal more to uncover about our Universe and beyond. We’ll delve into more of these mysterious topics in upcoming classes.”
