I've had several deja vus myself.
I would be sitting or standing in a place and in a way doing something and suddenly realize that I've done that before at the exact same place, at
the exact same time and doing the exact same thing.
I came up with two theories to explain this phenomena:
As the poster above, I can imagine that our mind sometimes slips. It creates a hole in our constant perception and in order to recover from that and
to keep our mind busy, it processes an event twice, giving you the impression of having experienced that moment twice. Your mind, though, can't
manage to "believe" that you've gone through the same thing twice in the exact same fashion, it "believes" that the previous memory imprint has
occured at a different time in the past.
The other theory is more of a personal, perceptive one that combines with my belief that I have more knowledge in my mind that I even can imagine. I
have these moments in my life, where my mind would wander off and then, for a fraction of a second, I would feel like I just unlocked all the buried
knowledge from my past lifetimes, which have been buried deep in my mind. In those moments, everything becomes clear; who I really am, what I'm here
for and everything about the universe. Unfortunately, it goes away as fast as it happened and I'm back to my humble self, sitting in the street car
on my way to school.
The interesting thing with these "universal moments", as I call them, is that I feel like, I've done everything in my life before, not necessarily
the exact same way in the exact same place in the exact same fashion, but it makes me believe that maybe, a deja vu is our mind's way of saying,
"hey, you've done this before, now do it differently."
