Deja Vu Anonymous 664
What causes it?
Art is by @segseu, by the way.
What I have found is that a lot of times when I get it, I had a similar moment in a dream about 3 to 6 months prior.
One theory that kind of lines up with my experience is that our minds go through so many bullshit, hypothetical situations when we sleep and the only ones we end up remembering are the ones that eventually sync up recognizably well with a real life moment, and thusly scare the bejeezus outta me.
The Brain accidentally interprets stimulation as "already experienced" for a moment. Not spooky at all
This, I remember my dreams in detail so when the situation occurs I'm like "oh it's just like my dream".
Some religions / beliefs state if you suicide or, die at the wrong time I guess, you'll be doomed to repeat your life over and over again until you get it right.
Maybe deja vu happens when our spirits (minds? i dunno) recognize the moment as having happened before
