I've been having lots of it lately, like once per day. What could it mean? Does anyone even know what causes it?

I guess science would say its an aberration or quirk of brain function, but it sure is uncanny. One alternative explanation, that would depend on prophetic dreams being a possibility, and I certainly wouldn't dismiss that, would involve your not having remembered the dream, until the event occurred again, in real life.

i don't know what it's caused from, but deja vu has always fascinated me. i like to imagine that it's because time is not really linear. if i try explaining further i'll get all confused and you'll think i've lost my mind....

When I studied psychology of the eye (yeah, its a course lol) I was taught that one possible reason for dejavu occurs when there is a disruption between what you see, and the recognition of it in memory.

There's a link here if you're interested.

I remember a while ago hearing that dejavu could be a problem with brain funtion and senses being slower than usual. The same way that a subliminal message gets stuck in your head when you scroll through a magazine with a subliminal advertisement. Your eyes and other senses pick up on whats happening, but your brain waves are slow. So you see whats happening but in reality what you're sensing is actually the past by the tiniest microsecond giving your brain the illusion that you have seen or heard or been in that exact position before.

It's been a while since i heard this so I'm not sure. Its all just theory.

Some people have it often, some people never have it. Apparently it can be brought on my stress, tiredness, etc., and is much more common in younger people.
There are many different scientific theories but no one understands it fully.
Deja Vu is also common in patients suffering from epilepsy, which would indicate some abnormality in regular brain functions.

Basically no one really knows, but the evidence points towards it being an irregular brain function rather than something paranormal :)

If you are having one Dejavu experience every 3 to 5 years and you travel a lot...that is potentially paranormal...but every day...you may want to see a doctor and rule out a seizure episode..

I've never had any seizures and I've seen my share of flashing things, only thing I can think of is my ADHD and Aspergers

also sometimes I can get it for 3 days a row, sometimes not for a week, sometimes every few days, sometimes more than once a day.

Technically, those two should not give you such problems.....tell me about your diet...

Get back to a ballanced diet...does not sound like carbs are taken into consideration...also your electrolites may be way off...You need some carbs dude...

It still sound like you are not taking in enough carbohydrates..that is a problem and can be related to survival....
