Maybe its due to the older we get, the less neurotic "misfires" we have, or simply less neurotic firing overall... For example, when we are young,
and have an experience, neurons are firing all over the place in different directions (accessing different memories, and processes), and maybe
stimulating the deja-vu experience in the first place. As we get older that chaotic firing of neurons lessens (or dullens), therefore our experiences
of deja-vu lessen...
Maybe it is because as we get older (and wiser), our mind learns to organize and "defragment" the info and memories in our brain more efficiently,
and learns to process incoming information (stimulation) more effectively, thereby reducing the amount of "erroneous CPU usage", aka chaotic firing
of neurons taking place. This would lessen the number of deja-vu experiences, since these chaotic firings are no longer accidentally accessing and
triggering similiar memories or emotions...
