It feels a little weird to post this as a time travel claim, especially after reading all the "I'm From the Future and I'm Going to Drop My Wisdom on a Select Few" tales -- but I guess it's the most appropriate spot. (I've been trolling the boards here and finally created an account so I could contribute my story. It is probably less interesting than some of the other stuff on here, but it's something that I've remembered vividly, and struggled to understand, for nearly twenty-five years.) In sharing my experience, I hope to find out whether anyone here has heard of this before (or... experienced it?). Maybe it even has a name? Anyway, here's what happened to me. I was a child. I don't remember my exact age -- between seven and nine is my best guess. I was sitting upstairs, watching TV, at my grandparents' house in West Virginia, during a summer visit there. And I remember this so vividly -- a game show was on TV and the announcer was talking to the contestants. Downstairs, my mom and grandma were chatting. I could hear their conversation well, so I guess they were sitting in the room that the stairs emptied into -- although I can't really remember the layout of the house very well. Then, suddenly, I experienced a sort of replay events. Very mundane events, but still... There was a period of, oh, maybe five seconds where everything around me repeated what had just happened in the previous five seconds. The game show announcer and the contestants repeated everything they had just said, and my mom and grandma downstairs SAID the same exact things they had just said -- same words, same intonation. Just, the same. It was a complete replay. Now, I was just a kid, but I knew this was messed up. I ran downstairs and told my mom what had just happened, and I remember her telling me that the sensation was called déjà vu. But that just made me mad, because I already knew what déjà vu was, and this was not déjà vu! I remember describing it as a kind of "glitch" -- and that is still the best way I can put it. A glitch in time, where things were just kind of messed up for a few seconds. In 25 years, I've had a lot of time to think about the experience and its possible explanations. Of course, it has occurred to me that the "glitch" was in my own brain. I'm certainly open to that explanation (although the "glitch in time" explanation is a lot more fun!). If anyone has heard of similar experiences, or had them, I wait eagerly -- and have been since the early 80s!
