I think that it is important to differentiate between the natural human state of "deja vu" and that which may be ascribed to inter-dimensional
As human beings, part of the working of the brain is to take a "snapshot" of circumstances so that processing a similar circumstance is "speeded"
up, rather than having to be cognitive of all events.
It is based on predictive behaviour and follows rules of recognition that allow us to pre-empt a situation and deal with it in a proactive manner.
Think of catching a ball in flight, our brain predicts the path based on empirical experience and allows us to intercept the ball in flight.
The same can be said of some deja vu experiences, where the circumstances for appraisal of an apparently new situation are such that they coincide
exactly with previous experiences and offer the conclusion that they *are* the same.
This should be differentiated from what we may call "true" deja vu where an experience is actually repeated seemingly to the smallest detail, but,
with our free will and ability to interact with the event still available.
The key here is *how* do we differentiate? Is there a physical attribute that we can cross-check, what element of time can we investigate to
determine the impact of events (e.g. lost time)?
