Is deja vu merely an aberration or does it have scientific basis??

My understanding is that there are characteristic patterns of brain activity associated with deja vu, and there are different mechanisms. For instance, some types of seizures can result in very intense feelings of deja vu. Most instances of deja vu are not symptoms of anything more serious than being a little tired.

I think Ophiolite was just playing on "deja vu"...
