Yes, pre-cogs are evolved. All humans with above average IQ's can and do predict the future. It's actually a function of the memory combined with the processing speed (regulated by salts, lipids, and other factors more complex) of the frontal cortex. People with persistent pre-cognition would be evolutionarily speaking more likely to survive and have a larger number of average offspring. Hence, the first pre-cog did well reproductively speaking, and since his children had a higher chance of being pre-cog than the neighboring cavemans kids, yadda yadda.

Anyways, i was more looking along the lines of the above example. Would the mind be able to come to a conclusion on that before it actually happened?

As to the quote.....history repeats to the unaware; all factors must be considered by the inclined.
To extrapolate is to infer something that is unknown from something that is known.
To predict is to tell in advance, usually on the basis of facts
I was making the point that prediction and extrapolation were the same, countering your earlier point that they were not the same. You were trying, at the time, and now, to confuse with lengthy linguistics. But you did succeed in making my point stronger, bad debate move. For shame.
What I know, I'll say again. The human brain is a very special computer, with a program call 'Survival' installed. We are exemplary in many ways, including our ability to social engineer, choose mates, murder, endure, and adapt. The future will either be very bright or very dim for us, depending on whether or not a large percentage of people 'wake up' in the next few years. It's entirely possible that the entirety of the species is psychic to varying degrees, but more likely, we'll begin to see the emergence of a psychic 'class' amongst men.
::Sigh::More strife is surely on the way regardless what happens. Humans are engineered to make life tough on themselves, and apparently the planet, because it increases the stress factor that adds to evolution. You seem to think in terms of the supernatural, but this term mystifies me. Is something super simply because we don't understand it? It's all natural my friend, it all comes from nature.
We're arguing over whether precognition and extrapolation are the same thing. You originally said they weren't, I disagreed in a way that made it seem as though I agreed, then I clarified, and I think it's your turn. I might have missed a volley. Should we be arguing, no, probably not. I think it's just semantics at this point.
On another element of this thread - The quantum mind
If the mind exists, as all things do, on multiple levels, does information leak from one level to another? This would account for things like pre-cog, remote viewing, past life regression, etc.
By what vehicle is the leak transmitted? How does the impression of a thought move from the ether into a pattern of electricity that can be perceived as thought? Is there a semi-permeable barrier between dimensions, and if so, what can cross freely? Probably everything, right?
Thoughts on this, quantum inspired or conventional?
