i want to know
Let me tell you. This is untainted. And it isn't anywhere on the web.
Deja vu is French.
Deja - Already
Vu - Seen (from verb voir - to see)
So, roughly, deja vu translates to already seen
But, in English, it means a feeling of something you have already experienced. Only a person who has experienced deja vu can accurately understand it.
One more thing: you don't create deja vu.
Have anyone seen the Matrix movie, staring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne and Carrie-Anne Moss directed by Andy Wachowski and Larry Wachowski. The part one that was released in 1999.
Remember when the Agent (Hugo Weaving) trapped Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss and others in Matrix, when their exit were blocked by another program. Carrie-Anne Moss (Trinity) saw a black cat passed her, then again after like 5 seconds she saw exactly the same cat passed again and she altered the word DEJA VU, Laurence Fishburne (Morpheus) asked her what she saw and she said, "I just saw the same cat passed me twice" and immediately Morpheus said DEJA VU is a glitch added in the program when someone changed something and immediaely they knew that they were in danger.
The point, she saw the same thing twice more importantly, the occurance were identical.
If you understand English language more than the Hollywood, na you sabi
Nah,man.it's not a repitition of events.It is like something that is happening to u that u feel has happened to u before but u're not sure.
So, in beyonce's deja vu, she was telling jay z that the way she's attracted to him, she feels she has been attracted to someone like that.
lol.just explaining so u don't get it twisted.got it?
It is called repetition of events. When something happen twice to you particularly when you cannot explain it. I cannot understand why someone would choose to cheat on their boy/girlfriend. If you are done in a relation, just end it and move on. They could be a chance of reconciliation later on in life. But cheating is evil and in my good book of life no f*#^k&% reconciliation, that is pure evil.
Ok people so Euphoria got her definition from another source, so what? wasn't that the reason why dictionaries etc were invented?
Hot-Angel you were able to paraphrase( and did a great job) the definition and give your concept in the best way you can. Both of you served the purpose.
Now to blatantly criticise Euphoria for her level of academic intelligence is indeed a travestry of justice. I do not in any way see the reason for all this bickering. Come on, we have more important issues at hand.
Freedom of speech is a scarce commodity but I do believe that people should be allowed to exercise that right.
I am very elated when I meet intelligent people of colour, after all for decades we have been labelled "Non-skulls, unintelligent, gorillas et al". so instead of bashing her, why not embrace her as a sister.
Hot-angle you yourself are very talented. I have read a number of your posts here on Nairaland, and fancy your style of writing, however, you must be mindful of your strategy. My mom would always correct us as children when one of us would speak out of terms, by telling us "it's not what we said, but rather how we said it" In a nutshell, I admonish you to watch your tone when responding to someone's statements.
Last but not least, criticism Is healthy, as long as it is administered in a way that would benefit the person or persons being criticised.
Listen like i said before, your attention span is really that of a goldfish, if you take time to read instead of jumping like an you will see that i never made claims to be the brain behind that definition, of course anyone can look it up, your problem was someone else got here b4 you to respond , like the jack of all trade and master of non that you are , you got mad.
Again , it was never a claim i made that it was my thought or definition and you only trying to make this allegation to divert attention from the fact that you were called a goldfish and attention crazed little so and so. Like i said you really do make me laugh when you try to tell grown a$$ men and women here what life is about, fuksake you haven't even lived yet and you band yourself about NL like you have seen it all and done it all. It's truly funny because you don't seem to realize how silly you sound half the time, i really do blame this, well some of it on the bad education you getting in America, you even try to talk like you lived there all your life , you little mind village clown.Listen stick to speaking Yoruba or whatever language from now on.
Next time you address me try to sound educated, smart and get your head out of your backside , then i might just listen to you. You say you apologized to me? well i told you already what i thought of that half a$$ed apology, and your little girl psychology game. Hence the reason i said you will never and can never be as smart as me, even on my worst day. Yes i said it again, go do a dance .
Honestly why do Nigerian parents insist on sending their children to America, they come out speaking like retards with under developed world views. (sorry to the few clued up ones here,you're the exception)
Replying to me will be like pissing in the wind luvies.I am done with your slow self. Go read a book or something and don't forget the American slangs and lingo? leave that to those who were born and bred , it does not suit you at all.
Exactly my dear. I mean Thats not even HER deffinition. It's WIKIPEDIA's Deffinition, and she making it seem like she got all that from her head. As if she's Ohhh, all that and then some.
If the owner of this thread wanted the etymology of 'deja vu" im sure, s/he wouldn't start this thread, but would rather go on wiki.
An ordinary Wikipediea deffinition doesn't warrant insults and doesn't make you automatically smart.
i'm not denying her def. was wrong or if she did a great job. just that it got unneccesssary junk, all that talk about itk and goldfish whatever was uncalled for. u d one doing d yapping. y d heck would i care whether someone on here know me? u expect everybody to know/be aware/recognise and be friends with all 45,830+ members? even people without a life can't afford to have that much stress.
wasn't gon say notin but i'm bored so here goes. yall' r d ones acting like amateur psychologist. she's a friend of mine and since u talking about her friends you talking to me too. in truth that definition u gave was too lng.
The term was created by a French psychic researcher, Émile Boirac (1851–1917) in his book L'Avenir des sciences psychiques (The Future of Psychic Sciences), which expanded upon an essay he wrote while an undergraduate French concentrator at the University of Chicago.The experience of déjà vu seems to be very common; in formal studies 70% or more of the population report having experienced it at least once. that's story story/junk. she didn't ask 4 all of that. your first sentence was all d answer she needed.
well, didnt want to tell u about diddy cuzz it will change the whole thing. yeah, i spoke with hm recently and he is ok. tried getting him to comeback to this site and he blatanly refused. said some ppl here are just not worth his time plus he has work to do and ish. wesly and her friend are one of the reasons he left including your admin. he is in another site now even though he aint posting much there.
what u told wesly was funny as hell. cant stop laughing. amateur psychologist, damn, dat ish is so funny. dont like her guts at all. all these microbes here that think they know it all. non sense.
Girly did not ask for a long or short meaning of the word. Basically your explanation to someone who does not know what Deja vu is or the feeling, would not know what you are talking about. I felt the explanation i found would help her get a full meaning of this word. Ever heard of Deep and surface learning? (if u are in university or have been you will know what this means)
I dont appreciate your comment, you are free to give your explanation of the word the poster enquired about, you just dont go about dismissing others when all you have done is scratched the surface and in effect sounded like a parrot.
Sorry maybe i should have waited till you came on the thread to give ur meaning, i think you a bit peeved that someone got here before you. i see you come here telling grown men and women about life, when you have hardly stared life urself luv, On my worst day you can not out smart me love.
I am out sorry girly didnt mean to upset ur thread just like to speak my mind when ppl with the attention of a goldfish try to appear smart.
