DEJAVU

There you are walking down a street where you have never been before, but for some reason it seems familiar. It's almost as if this had happened before! But how?

Déjà vu (literally "already seen") is the experience of feeling sure that one has already witnessed or experienced a current situation, even though the exact circumstances of it are uncertain and were perhaps imagined. The experience of déjà vu is usually accompanied by a compelling sense of familiarity, and also a sense of "eeriness", "strangeness", "weirdness", or what Sigmund Freud calls "the uncanny". The "previous" experience is most frequently attributed to a dream, although in some cases there is a firm sense that the experience has genuinely happened in the past.

Theories

1. Scientifically a deja vu attributed to the hippocampus, which is an area of the brain responsible for memory. It is believed that in some situations the hippocampus records before the time a new fact that is happening. This confusion of registration in the presence of an event makes you feel that the situation has already occurred. It is a failure of microseconds but it happens. According to psychologists deja vu depends greatly on the individual's routine. The more imaginative the subject, most frequently the phenomenon can happen. It is also variable, depending on their habits. People who leave or travel a lot tend to feel more often than those who stay more home.

2. Spiritualists believe that Deja vu is related to reincarnation. An event you lived or a place you’ve been in a past life for example. Another spiritualist explanation is that the Deja vu emerges from the unconscious, whereas in the hours of sleep, the Spirit, protruding from the body with the perispirit, wanders around, looking after their interests and preparing to face their new tasks the next day. Thus, the feeling that a certain task has already been done or a certain place already been visited, without ever having been there before, can be the result of this out of the body experience and do not necessarily come from previous incarnations.

3. Well, there's also the theory of the Divine! Because as in the Bible itself is written that God owns  time, which for God  the time doesn’t really exist, He has the power to cross our chronological time, meaning that our memories are still a great mystery, and can store the past and so things to come too! Then the "DEJA VU" is a reminder of a future situation and not a past one.
