FAMILIARITY

is a generic feeling in which a situation, event, place, person or object directly provokes a subjective feeling of recognition which we then believe to be a memory. As a result, we recognize "it".

FAMILIARITY: "As human beings we typically observe familiarity between two members of the same family or even between members of our social groups."
