It's generally regarded as a kind of short circuit in the memory - basically what happens is that some wires get crossed and the experiences that are being fed into your memory moment by moment are accidentally sent straight back out again as though you're recalling them. It makes it seem as though you've "been here before" even though you're actually remembering the last few seconds in a kind of feedback loop. Nothing spooky or psychic about it though it is pretty weird at the time.
Occasionally I've had what I thought was deja vu only to find that I had in fact been in an almost identical situation before. Most of the time though it's just because I'm tired or stressed and the old brain is having a senior moment.
Now if you're talking about the movie Deja Vu then I fully recommend it.
but i'd have soemthing happening and thinking about it after. mostly a dream way prior to the deja vu event. usually marks something right before something bad would happen. idk man, i think it's something more than a feedback loop.

deja vu kinda creeps me out, on several occasions I've had it happen and been able to remember what is going to happen. I assume it's just deja vu paired with my sub concious generating a "prediction" that gets worked into the false memory, but it still freaks me out when it happens considering how specific a few have been.

there have been plenty of times where I have had a dream, and then the next day I thought some scenario that I run into that day was already played out in my dreams. it was nothing ever bad, just little things
