I like the idea that there is many trillions of dimensions with 'possible' futures that have already happened (because time does not exist) and each action that we choose determines which future path we go along.
As much as we hate to admit it, there is only a finite number of ways our lives can go. It's a BIG finite number, but still finite. Therefore it is perfectly logical that everything that has happened, could happen or is going to happen is actualy occuring right now. This is destiny.
The free will part comes in the choices we make. If we choose to kill someone, all the multi-dimensional futures in which we hadn't killed someone don't exist - what actually happens (to our perception) is now limited by our actions. We choose our own future.
That said, the number of choices and dimensions is so huge we cannot even begin to comprehend it.
I have deju vu regularly. I have always meant to keep a journal but somehow within minutes of the deju vu being 'over' I forget exactly what it is that I 'remembered'.
I have also had deju vu on top of deju vu - little sequences of life that seem to have happened multiple times, not just once before... It's very very strange and awesome.
