~Aikido~

Aikido ~ (合気道 Aikidō, also 合氣道 using an older style of kanji) Literally meaning “harmony energy way”, or with some poetic license, “way of the harmonious spirit”, is a gendai budo – a modern Japanese martial art. Practitioners of aikido are known as aikidoka. It was developed by Morihei Ueshiba (植芝盛平) (also known by aikidoka as o-sensei (大先生)) over the period of the 1930s to the 1960s. Technically, the major parts of aikido are derived from Daitō-ryū Aiki-jūjutsu (大東流合気柔術), a form of jujutsu with many joint techniques, and kenjutsu (剣術), or Japanese sword technique (some believe the tactics in Aikido are especially influenced by Yagyū Shinkage-ryū). Aikido is also considered to contain a significant spiritual component.

~Déjà Vu~

Déjà vu” describes the uncanny sensation that you’ve already experienced something, even when you know you never have.

There’s no conclusive evidence on how common it actually is, but varying estimates suggest anywhere between 60 and 80 percent of the population experience this phenomenon.

While déjà vu is fairly common, especially among young adults, experts haven’t identified a single cause. Maybe a glitch in the matrix?
