This is not a deja vu
... but what is the phenomenon called? →
[More:] I often feel that I see an alternative thing happening than what is actually happening - always regarding pretty mundane things.
For example, my father-in-law was pushing the coffee-plunger down and I 'saw' how the whole pot went off-balance, tipped over, and splurged hot coffee all over the place. In reality he seemed to have the same thought, looked at me (who would have been hit by the coffee) and suddenly adjusted the way he pushed the plunger, holding the pot with two hands because he said that he worried that it might spill. The visual was as if I had remembered
it happening, but I haven't had a coffee-plunger spill like that. Yet I know
and knew then, exactly what that looks like, as if I have seen it.
It's similar to the flash-intutions I get, like when I parked the pram outside of a cafe to run in to use the bathroom and I got this flash visual of pram not being there when I came out. Which then actually happened.
