Presque Vu

Let’s continue our look into the mind…or rather the dark areas of the mind that mystify us… the term presque vu, from French, meaning "almost seen") is the intense feeling of being on the very edge of a powerful epiphany, a wondrous insight, or revelation, without ever actually achieving the revelation…therefore, the feeling is often associated with a sense of frustration, a tantalizing sense of incompleteness or near-completeness like running a marathon but not finishing the final mile…sometimes these are achieved in dream-like consciousness or even in dreams themselves…perhaps you’ve woken up from one of these and longed to go back to sleep and that dream so that you ascertain the answer…but there is no going back, and that is when the frustration sets in.
