There was another thread posted a few months ago concerning another analysis extremely similar to this one:
Predicting the Unpredictable: 75 Years of Experimental Evidence
It seems that analysis wasn't quite as comprehensive as this one, but their conclusion was the same... people do in fact have the ability to sense
I've pretty much known this fact my entire life, because I've experienced the power of intuition myself many times... there comes a point where
coincidence can no longer explain it.
Mossbridge’s analysis of the data puts the odds of her findings being the result of chance or coincidence at 400 billion to one.
I've said for a very long time that many so called supernatural phenomena are real, we simply haven't worked out the scientific mechanisms behind
The problem with mainstream science up until this point, is that it has for the most part ignored anything which "sounds like science fiction"... this
is true for a lot of strange phenomena.
Anything which can't be explained with our current scientific understanding is typically classified as not being real. There's an old saying... the
truth is often stranger than fiction.
There's so much we don't understand about reality... especially all the weirdness associated with quantum mechanics. Reality is much more interesting
then we first assumed.
“The cause of this anticipatory activity, which undoubtedly lies within the realm of natural physical processes (as opposed to supernatural or
paranormal ones), remains to be determined.”
You see, there is no such thing as paranormal forces... anything which exists can be understood and explained in scientific terms. For if it couldn't
be explained it wouldn't exist.
There are things we already understand, and things we don't yet understand... nothing more. The things we don't understand yet are often neglected and
relegated to the realms of the paranormal.
Even if god exists there is a scientific explanation for how and why such a god exists, how it came to be, how it functions, what it is constructed
of, how its brain/mind works, so on and so forth.
I believe telepathy is also a legitimate process, numerous studies have shown evidence such a phenomena is real. It just seems so amazing that we
instantly deny it.
In reality it's probably not that amazing... all our brains emit electromagnetic radiation in the form of brain waves, it's extremely possible our
brains have an inductive mechanism capable of reading such waves.
Evolution will exploit every possible mechanism in order to build more robust organisms. The ability to sense danger moments before that danger
arrives, is indispensable for survival.
The ability to pick up on the thoughts and/or emotional state of other people also has numerous evolutionary advantages. We can get along with others
better and avoid angry people.
Sooner or later these phenomena will be completely understood, and we will look back to see how stupid we once were for ignoring these amazing
processes for so long.
