OK, first off this is a paper, hardcopy wise it was 4.5 pages in length.
I wrote this paper today, so please forgive me for any spelling and
grammatical errors I may have made.
Precognition, the gaining of knowledge about events before there
This ability has been claimed by people throughout human history,
from the so called prophets of are major religions to the modern
day new age charlitans.
While we are able to discount the religious "prophets" for a multitude
of reasons and the modern "psychics" for even more obvious reasons,
to say that Precognition is complete hoaxery would be an erroneous
Though considered psuedo-science and Tom-hoaxery by mainstream
science, Precognition is an anomoly that deserves serious research
into how it may work.
This paper will outline three seperate and equally unique theories on
the Precognition using current scientific knowledge, theoretical physics
and some fringe science.
We exist in a linear-temperal universe, meaning we progress forward
in time at a relatively fixed rate.
If we assume this to be an absolute it allows us to eliminate many
chances for the various paradoxes.
If indeed the above is true, and time is steadily progressing at a fixed
rate, and the future is not predetermined, than this leaves us without
an answer as to how than Precognition can be possible.
However, if we take into consideration the existance of the Quantum
many worlds theory, and go a step further and assume that every one
of the infinently large amount of possible universes that can exist
already do so, than we can establish a basic theory.
The theory would work thusly;
the precognitive would use some sort of interdimensional knowledge
gathering ability basing the events around them as bases to choose
the knowledge from the closest probability to there own universe.
While this theory does give us a theoretical basis fo the workings of
Precognition, the energy required for such a feat is uknown, and is
undoubtedly an exponentially large amount, and the ability to travel
interdimensionally corporeal or otherwise is a total uknown at this
time, and indeed may not even be possible.
A more likely theory may utilize quantum mechanical properties.
At one time in our not to distant past physicists thought they could
predict everything that would or could happen in the future of the
test area, this would be possible by measuring the velocity and
position of the particles, thusly allowing for them to know the future.
However, with the discovery of Heisenbergs Uncertainty Principle this
has been proven to not be possible.
However, as hgas been seen throughout scientific history, science is
never always correct about things, indeed rather science is an ever
changing and evolving field, and Heisenbergs Uncertainty Principle
may prove to not be as impossible to side step as is currently thought.
This theory works thusly;
the precognitive predicts the paths and movements of particles while
at the same time taking into acount the various other factors into mind,
this unification of particle prediction and factoring would than produce
the end result, knowledge of an event before it's occurence.
However, as we do not have a sufficiently large enough knowledge
base in Quantum Physics, we currently have no way of telling what
quantum mechanical principlas would be invlved ins such a complicated
The third and final theory, and of all the three the seeminlgy most
plausable presented in this paper is based on current theories of
SuperLuminal temporal field propogation.
Current theories stipulate that if something were to travel at speeds
exceeding c, than it would would be subject to the effects of
temporal relocation, or as it's more commonly refered to, time travel.
From what we know of the human brain and body in total, there are
several recognised naturally occuring energy fields.
The brain uses electrochemical reactions, which means that our
thoughts and emotions are comprised of electric charges.
Apart from that, the body also produces it's own natural Electro-
Magnetic field, albeit weak in comparison to other objects.
A more disputed energy feild that may be an existing natuarally
occuring energy is the so called Psionic energy field.
These three energies, either working seperately or in tandem comprise
part of the basis behind the third theory.
The third and final theory is thusly;
th precognitive utilizes the aforementioned energy field(s).
The energies are manipulated in such a way as to cause SuperLuminal
The energies than would travel forward in time and interact with the
electrochemical "knowledge" of an individual in a future time, the energy
matrix, carrying the information it had gleaned from the individual(s)
would than travel back to thewir original temporal origin point.
Although at the time we have no way of testing any of the theories
stated in this paper empiracally, they are not meant to provide a simple
answer, rather they are meant to start the scientific process of
investigating Precognition and how it works.
Hopefully the theoreis presented here can be used as a springboard to
start said process and understanding the enigma that is Precognition.
I'm very interested in everyones responses and opinions to it.
