I think I know what willizbiko's talking about. From the book, it's a flash of information, usually preceded by sensory phenomena (like a smell, or a particular sight, or sound). It was intended to be fiction, when it was written, but I don't know if Stephen King did research into it first, so it might be accurate.

Hi all!

I presume willizbiko means "The Shining"? If so, a synopsis states:

"A father is a recovered alcoholic, and he loses his job due to his alcohol problem. So now he's offered a job managing a resort/hotel in the winter in Denver Co.
His son Danny, who has the ability to almost foretell what happens, is scared for some reason. He has an imaginary friend, Tony, who is telling him very clearly that something is wrong here at this hotel. His parents don't really believe him, and think he is being silly, until things REALLY do begin to happen. There was trouble from day one with the bees, and it goes on from there.

Room 217 at the hotel is a horror story in itself. It has a great big lock on there, and people are forbidden to enter. Danny is curious, though, and he manages to get a key and enter the room. More trouble starts.

Boppy, Resident Stephen King Scholar"

from here

But I don't know where he got his ideas from. Stephen King says:

"I get my ideas from everywhere. But what all of my ideas boil down to is seeing maybe one thing, but in a lot of cases it's seeing two things and having them come together in some new and interesting way, and then adding the question 'What if?' 'What if' is always the key question."

from here

I don't know if that helps?

thats pretty much it. the person who has it has flashes of the future and sometimes the past. and like asala said, a smell or sight of something is related to it.

so does anyone have any experience with this shining stuff?
