The most popular deja-vu theory is that the brain mistakes perception with memory. That's why we can't predict what's going to happen, instead have the feeling it already happened after it happened. Deja-vu's are hard to study, because they occur randomly, however epileptics are prone to them, so if you experience a lot of deja-vu's, you better consult a medic.

Major parts of the TV series Fringe are based on these things. Special devices were supposed to force parts of two worlds to synchronize with each other in order to build a bridge... Other shows and literature are also based on this.

As far as I know a deja vu is sort of a memory glitch. Usually everything we experience goes into short term memory and only if judged "important" goes into long term memory. A deja vu is an experience that is falsely stored instantly into long term memory. So the moment of actual experience seems like the exact copy of something we think to remember from the past.

physics messing with our brains.......... we are in trouble now. Next they will be plugging us in

Just because people think and sounds as if they know what they are talking about s doesn't mean they do. The brain is great and we still have no clue on the way it works.

The main issue with his explanation is that it's a string theory explanation (strings, vibrations, etc.). The proof of existence of the Higgs field (and Boson) renders the only advantage that string theory had over the standard model which is that of explaining mass of elementary particle in free space. So, in other words, string theory doesn't bring any additional understanding to the equation than the standard model (along with the Higgs fields and boson). And therefore, string theory may not actually correctly explain our universe (but it may as well).

#9 "There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory, which states that this has already happened." Douglas Adams

This dude is one Ancient Aliens episode away from quackville, and he rides it all the way to the bank. He's less a student of quantum physics and more a master of quantum hyperbole.
