The feeling of déjà vu is familiar to every person: finding himself for the first time in a certain setting or circumstances, a person feels as if this moment in time has already been in his life.
It is assumed that the phenomenon of déjà vu contains 3 main types:
1) dejavecu - already existing experience
2) dejasenti - what was already felt
3) dejavisit - the feeling that you have already visited this or that place
Many theories have been put forward as to why we feel déjà vu. Some say that these are still unknown processes in our brain, others argue that we pass through parallel worlds, portals.
The funniest, but nonetheless scientific, fact is that most of us do not doubt the existence of déjà vu, because almost everyone has experienced this feeling. That is why this phenomenon stands out among the thousands of mysteries of our unknown world.
