It's probably been 25 years now but I remember watching an episode of Unsolved Mysteries...you know then one with Robert Stack. Anyways, there was an episode of where this dude fell asleep on his math book. When he awoke he knew everything in that book. Needless to say, this started a long trend of me sleeping on my school books lol.
The next night, after a complaint from the school teacher, his father ruthlessly tested him for spelling, eventually knocking him out of his chair with exasperation. At that point, Edgar 'heard' the voice of the lady who had appeared yesterday. She told him that if he could sleep a little 'they' could help him. He begged for a rest and put his head on the spelling book. When his father came back into the room and woke him up, he knew all the answers. In fact, he could repeat anything in the book. His father thought he had been fooling before and knocked him out of the chair again. Eventually, Edgar used all his school books that way. By 1892, the teacher regarded Edgar as his best student. On being questioned, Edgar told the teacher that he saw pictures of the pages in the books. His father became proud of this accomplishment and spread it around, resulting in Edgar becoming "different" from his peers. Shortly after this, Edgar exhibited an ability to diagnose in his sleep. He was struck on the base of the spine by a ball in a school game, after which he began to act very strangely, and eventually was put to bed. He went to sleep and diagnosed the cure, which his family prepared and which cured him as he slept. His father boasted that his son was, "the greatest fellow in the world when he's asleep.

REINCARNATION??..16 Year Old Teen Awakes From Coma Speaking Fluent Spanish

This is extremely interesting. Thought proceeds language, so it makes me wonder how they are able to tap into these fluent thought patterns completely foreign to them.
Reincarnation could be an idea.
Tapping into the collective unconscious could be another.
Hall of records?
