Why do certain things bring back memories ive never experienced?


Im not sure if this is the right subreddit for this, but im not sure where else to ask. i keep having this feeling or a memory of going outside at night at a motel. its very specific and i have never done that in my life. sometimes smells bring me there or certain songs. redbone by childish gambino always does that. i get this feeling when im really high too.

I’m not really sure about what your explaining but I have a theory. Think of it like reading a book, when the words allow you to conjure an image in your mind. Certain, words, sights, sounds and smells can all act as triggers, giving us different emotions and vibes. Our subconscious then combined these unexplained feelings into images that we associate with them.
