It's only precognitive if you write it down and then the thing happens.

Except, during my experience of deja vu, the clincher is you don't know it's something that was actually precognitive until it happens. Though I think there are such abilities.

Then its not precognitive.

Your brain is laying down new memories, and it's wiring them in wrong, so that the new memory looks like an old one.

This is just a quirk of how our brains work that we don't understand. Its not evidence of psychic ability.

It would be nice to live in a world with magic, but then we'd have to deal with dragons too, and those things are buggers when they get big.

First off: I already know of this explanation which I clearly stated in the post. Another thing I clearly stated: that I was looking for believers ONLY. Lastly: there are whole swaths of reality that science doesn't comprehend and I'm looking for those who have experienced such things and their opinions on what they are. This was both implied and explicit.

Please, for the love of all that is still quite mysterious to our existence, get the hell out of here.

PS: Even scientists experience weird unexplainable shit, so don't come on here patronizing people.
