Definition of wierd
1. weird [ a ] suggesting the operation of supernatural influences
Examples: "an eldritch screech" "the three weird sisters" "stumps...had uncanny shapes as of monstrous creatures"- John Galsworthy "an unearthly light"
(Nathan Rapport, ""I've Been Here before!"...)
Most psychiatrists dismiss these instances of that weird feeling as the deja_vu ( already seen ) illusion , just as they dismiss dream previsions as coincidences .
Dreams that display events of the future with photographic detail call_for a theory explaining their basic mystery and all its components , including that weird feeling of deja_vu , inevitably fantastic though that theory must seem .
The degree of circumstance , the ratio of memory to forgetfulness , determines whether a dream will be a recognized , fulfilled prevision , or the vaguely , effective source of the weird deja_vu feeling .
If Depew had told any academic psychologist that he had a weird feeling of having lived through that identical convention session at some time in the past , he would have been informed that he was a victim of deja_vu .
