the realization of these things might possibly be based in fact. Of course this is only my opinion.
I think it has to do with going from childhood to an adult.
A child has more synapses firing and they are more aware than adults. Adults are more self aware and they have developed the ability to rationalize
I remember debating atheist in a chat room and an atheist came into the room and he was shocked because he had seen a ghost. He couldn't believe
what he saw.
By the end of the conversation the others had convinced him that he didn't see what he saw and he began to rationalize things. He said he was sleepy
at the time and he probably was confused. He left the chatroom saying he felt better now he knows he didn't see a ghost.
This is because adults can build a worldview and a belief system. Children are more open to these things.
We already know children don't develop in these areas and they are more open to things.
Here's some research:
I think everytime a child see's something, it's not just make believe.
I think psychics are connected in this way. Maybe there synapses didn't fully degrade and this is why psychics and children are aware of these
Young children have about 10/16 synapses (10 quadrillion). This number declines with age, stabilizing by adulthood. Estimates for adults vary from
10/15 to 5 × 10/15 (1-5 quadrillion) synapses.
So maybe children and psychics are connected this way and this is why they are aware of these things. This could actually be tested.
