BOOK REVIEW: The Deja Vu Expirement by JG Renato

The Deja Vu Experiment

Theyʼre everywhere around us, but usually we choose to ignore them. They happen in space. They happen in time. Theyʼre little moments of discontinuity in our experience, but they can become portals to the greater experience of our world as illusion, as the veil, as Maya, as the collective dream.

And the experience of ourselves as the dreamers. If we choose not to ignore them, but to follow them, like Alice down a cosmic rabbit hole, we might just begin to understand how it was that we got here in the first place.

This book is about not ignoring them, but embracing them. Journey to the outer limits of the mind to explore the worlds of quantum physics, black holes, and superstring theory.

John Galt guides us through The Déjà Vu Experiment. He acknowledges that he was wrong about stopping the motor of the world, not just because stopping that motor may have been harmful to too many people, but because that was the wrong motor. Instead of asking the immortal question “Who is John Galt?” the proper question to ask is: “What is John Galt?”

The singular perspective of John Galtʼs transformed character is certain to attract the discerning enthusiasm of Ayn Rand fans everywhere. Readers worldwide will gain valuable insights that transcend our boundaries of previous notions about reality, life, and our purpose - goodreads

 I'm not really sure where to begin with this book. Mainly because I don't know what his point was.  As I was reading it I kept wondering if he was going to talk more about deja vu? I appreciate the fact that he makes you question those 'gaps in time' and to live in the moment- which he equates to not getting stuck in the autopilot side of life. But some of the ways he brought it up sounded to much like a revisit to grade 12 physics.  That being said I liked that he didn't dumb it down too much.

He kept talking about his past wife and how it was her that made him look differently at the world. Which bravo for her (and him) but really, it felt like a thank you note for her. I mean the cynic in me says write a journal entry not a book. I

 guess I was just very confused about this book because I was expecting something more about how to embrace deja vu. On that point I don't recommend this book.
