Research Suggests We Unconsciously React to Events Up to 10 Seconds Before They Happen

Can your brain detect events before they even occur? That was the stunning conclusion of a 2012 meta-analysis of experiments from seven independent laboratories over the last 35 years, which found that the human body “can apparently detect randomly delivered stimuli occurring 1-10 seconds in the future”





The key observation in these studies is that human physiology appears to be able to distinguish between unpredictable dichotomous future stimuli, such as emotional vs. neutral images or sound vs. silence. This phenomenon has been called presentiment (as in “feeling the future”). In this paper we call it predictive anticipatory activity or PAA. The phenomenon is “predictive” because it can distinguish between upcoming stimuli; it is “anticipatory” because the physiological changes occur before a future event; and it is an “activity” because it involves changes in the cardiopulmonary, skin, and/or nervous systems.

Sounds a bit strange but if i am reading this correct it appears that the brain can detect and respond to events before they occur in real time. It would certainly help to explain why some people seem to be able to see events in the future before they happen.

Researchers have said more studies need to be done before any firm conclusions can be drawn.

I think if this was true, there would be no such thing as car accidents.

Then why do I always think of the witty retort a few seconds too late?
Also..Why am I not running for the hills a few seconds before the person lets out a deadly fart?

Excellent point, but.....

I think that a good deal of car wrecks are caused by people who are so incredibly stupid that this just won't work for them. This 'precognition faculty' is wasted on them. They are THAT stupid.

God, I hope with my first post I didn't just lump myself into the people I'm describing!!!!

I totally saw this thread coming 10 seconds before you posted it.
I have definitely had this phenomenon where I knew what exactly was about to happen. Usually if I say something stupid to my girlfriend

Detecting an impending car accident is one thing. Getting that information from the unconscious mind to the conscious mind is another.

That's why presentment studies measure physiological reactions to future stimulus... bypassing the conscious mind.

Not to mention unwanted pregnancies!

Sorry, didn't want to go there, but when I read this it was the first thing that came to mind.....

If this is true it totally rearranges the laws of physics of course. 10 seconds is too great of a delay to be explained. It would mean that the mind can receive input that has not happened yet. How this can be cataloged in a traditional sense of past present and future is mind boggling.

Could this something like a premonition?

Maybe our subconscious just puts together patterns that seem to point to a likely outcome.

I have noticed this often when in that state somewhere between being awake and asleep and the mind seems to drift away into uncontrolled thoughts/dreams, but at the same time being somewhat aware of noises in my environment. If there is a sudden loud noise of a random type eg phone rings, doorbell, car horn, whatever it somehow fits into the dream. Not usually as what that sound really is necessarily, but my mind works it into the dream. The strange part is it's generally built up to in some way. Like a monkey runs up with one of those air horn cans points it at me then outside the driver blasts his horn and it becomes the sound of the monkey's horn. (Not an actuall dream, just an example lol)

It's very apparent when this occurs that somehow my subconcious saw the noise coming and integrated it into the dream.

Anybody else ever notice this?

Hmm, I agree but what if it's that momentary change in perception, and the unfamiliarity of the reaction it causes that maybe helps people in crashing rather then prevention?

I dont know... I seem to have the ability to know that things happen to me before it happens, even such things as accidents. Though, I often do not react to something popping in my head moments before they happen. I have a pending feeling of "something". It's always when the issue happens that I can look back just before and tell myself... "I should have listened to my thoughts".

Personally, I would say it's even possible a while before 10 seconds even. Either that... Or I'm psychic, and I'm pretty sure I'm not.

Yes, I've seen videos about some of these experiments.

It's pretty amazing stuff.

Dr. Quantum talks about some of these stunning studies
as well.

a reply to: purplemer This phenomenon has saved my life more than once. Car accidents were already discussed but I have to include one here. I was a passenger with my friend driving. He was about to change to the right lane to get around some traffic backed up in the left lane. As he started to make his move I held up my hand and said stop. Just after that by less than a second we both turned and looked out to the right lane and saw a woman on her cell phone texting. Just then she smashed without breaking into the car in front of us and in the right lane. If my friend had made his move we would have been hit. The impact likely would have been centered on my door. I felt it coming I did not see it until it was nearly over and would have been too late for us to avoid the accident. 3 cars were damaged in that accident.

We already know that it is possible for a system to exist outside of space and time.


The role of the timing and order of quantum measurements is not just a fundamental question of quantum mechanics, but also a puzzling one. Any part of a quantum system that has finished evolving, can be measured immediately or saved for later, without affecting the final results, regardless of the continued evolution of the rest of the system. In addition, the non-locality of quantum mechanics, as manifested by entanglement, does not apply only to particles with spatial separation, but also with temporal separation. Here we demonstrate these principles by generating and fully characterizing an entangled pair of photons that never coexisted. Using entanglement swapping between two temporally separated photon pairs we entangle one photon from the first pair with another photon from the second pair. The first photon was detected even before the other was created. The observed quantum correlations manifest the non-locality of quantum mechanics in spacetime.

Entanglement Between Photons that have Never Coexisted
E. Megidish, A. Halevy, T. Shacham, T. Dvir, L. Dovrat, H. S. Eisenberg

We know that systems can operate outside of space and time, and we now know that entangled states can be cloned and swapped, allowing there to be entanglement without any direct interaction between two particles within the system. I recall hearing of a new theory that states that conscious might be a quantum phenomena, and that the brain is essentially a complex quantum computer. And that is starting to look more and more possible, as the old argument of "quantum mechanics only concerns the very small" is slowly being whittled away. Scientists are creating larger and more complex quantum systems. We simply don't have the means for measuring, recording and describing large quantum systems outside of the lab yet. But a break through is bound to happen soon, at this pace. We might find that quantum mechanics is true law, and classical physics are merely an illusion or misunderstanding. Materialism is endangered, me thinks.

This is new research? I remember reading about this a while ago and it makes sense. Think about it, it takes time for light to travel from point A to point B as evidenced by the fact that we have clocked its speed (velocity). So light has to take time to travel from its source to an object then bounce off of that object then reach your eye and travel to the nerve ending which are converted into electrical impulses which take time to travel to the brain. This is JUST your vision, you other senses also logically work on delays as well. Since new information is always arriving in real time, it isn't a stretch of the imagination if you consider that your brain fills in some gaps for you and reacts before you process the information fully.
