Last Show Recap

Understanding Déjà Vu

In the first half, Dave Schrader (email) welcomes veteran police detective, Robert Snow, who during a hypnotic regression, experienced a vivid awareness of being alive in three separate historical scenes. Remaining skeptical, he began to investigate with the intention of disproving reincarnation. However, what he discovered was the opposite-- solid evidence that he lived a former life as Carroll Beckwith, a 19th-century American artist. Followed in the second half, by former President of the Scottish Society for Psychical Research, Tricia Robertson, who'll share stories from her extensive casebook that deal with a wide range of phenomena that provide evidence for survival after death.

6-10pm PT, Art Bell: Somewhere in Time returns to 6/20/96 when Luba Brezhnev, niece of Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev, revealed how she was hounded by the KGB.

Understanding Déjà Vu

Show Archive
Date: Wednesday - October 11, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Dr. Vernon Neppe

Neuropsychiatrist and anomalistic psychologist Dr. Vernon Neppe shared his intensive research into the phenomenon of deja vu. The experience is defined as feeling as though something has happened before-- that you've already been in a place, or heard or seen something, even though it should be unfamiliar (see list of various subtypes).

Early interpretations of the experience associated it with temporal lobe dysfunction, and while that holds true in some cases, Neppe found that deja vu could also be related to nostalgia, relief of anxiety, and paranormal experiences.

He is particularly fascinated by the paranormal or psychic connections with deja vu. The sense of "time distortion" that can accompany the experience relates to notions of reincarnation and having lived before, he noted, and premonitions and precognition share a similarity to the phenomenon as well.
