Good to see you again!
I have only been aware of the research that was done,
in sensing/feeling, coming quakes, for a few years.
But it's something I find really intriguing!
And someday when I have more time,
I would love to really delve into it!
Hubby has felt things like family members being ill,
thousands of miles away, his whole life.
His mother is 94 & is really good at it!
Whenever he is feeling especially rough,
the phone will ring, & it will be her, asking what's wrong?!
How do you lie to your Mom & tell her you're fine,
when she can sense that your not! Lol!
So it wasn't much of a leap to put things together.
Him feeling something, but everyone is okay...
then a good size quake being on the news!
Then when I found ATS & the quake & experimental threads,
there was no going back!
Over the years, there have been a couple of times,
when a HUGE wave of horrible, sudden,
overwhelming sadness has washed over me.
I could never figure out what it was.
Then once when I was watching the news about a mass genocide,
I had to wonder if it was perhaps something like that?
Who knows what ties humans have to each other?
It's really something how there will be no posts at all
on the 'prediction' thread for weeks.
But then all of a sudden,
there will be some of us posting at the same time,
because we are all feeling something!
It used to be when the 'regulars' on ATS were cranky,
& being snippy across the boards, that was a good sign!
But now, there just seems to be a lot of rude people! Sigh!
I think there is a lot more to it than just quakes though.
Strong solar flares seem to be one of those things.
There's so much out there that we aren't aware of yet!
And I think there is so much 'modern life' interference,
that it messes with what we are feeling!
Aaand, how many times do we second guess ourselves?
Or think that we must just be imagining things?
Wi-Fi, microwaves, cell phone signals...
I read an article about someone that is actually 'allergic' to Wi-Fi!
So it is possible that what we feel could be being 'polluted' if you will!
About the only way to do a good 'clean' experiment,
would be to go out into the boonies or on an island somewhere,
where there's no interference & keep a log for weeks.
Then come back & compare that log with the actual quake lists!
I notice in our family, that our oldest grown daughter,
gets especially cranky & really hungry before a bigger quake.
She would never admit it though!
Back in late October, hubby & I were going through one
of the most stressful times we've ever had. Business related.
Sleepless nights, chest pains sort of stress!
We didn't tell our kids for weeks.
But youngest daughter who lives 3 hours away,
was calling more than usual just to 'chat'!
We found out later that SHE was feeling something!
She was afraid that hubby was having some kind of health problems,
& that we weren't telling her, to keep her from worrying!
And probably we were feeling her worry & that was adding to our stress!?
It's a vicious cycle! Lol!
I think we are like a canary in the mine. Or...use it or lose it!
People who are aware of the possibility, pay more attention to it.
When you pay attention, you see things that you wouldn't otherwise.
Not talking about imagining things here!!!
Lets call it a 'yet to be recognized' science!
Nothing is 100% accurate.
Even the weather forecasts, with all that expensive equipment,
can be skewed by variables!
I'm so hoping to live long enough to see something come of predicting.
I don't care if it's through reading temperature changes above a fault line,
insects & reptiles scurrying away for their lives,
or someone hooked up to an EEG machine...something, anything!!!
Interesting times to be alive!!!
