Can Accessing Memory of Prior Auras Trigger A Seizure

Can thinking about or remembering your auras of prior seizures trigger a seizure? Today my husband and I were talking to our 22 year old son about the auras he has experienced prior to the three seizures he has had. He was getting very specific about the feelings and thoughts that he has had, and then all of a sudden he said "wow, I feel really weird," exactly what he had already told us he thinks right before a seizure; for a split second I thought he was just demonstrating what happens just prior to a seizure. But in fact, he actually had a tonic clonic seizure right then and there. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Yes, I don't know why. I gave my wife a detailed explanation once, and just the description got my mind whirling in that tornado-like way that can lead to a seizure.
