The perception of reality by biosystems is based on different, and in certain respects more effective principles than those utilised by the more formal procedures of science. As a result, what appears as random pattern to the scientific method can be meaningful pattern to a living organism. The existence of this complementary perception of reality makes possible in principle effective use by organisms of the direct interconnections between spatially separated objects shown to exist in the work of J.S. Bell.
On the other hand, it is certainly true that all current neurobiological descriptions of the brain are based on Newton's Physics, even if it is well known that Newton's Physics has its limitations. First of all, Newton's Physics is an offshoot of Descartes division of the universe in matter and spirit, and it deals only with matter. Secondly, neurobiologists assume that the brain and its parts behave like classical objects, and that quantum effects are negligible, even while the "objects" they are studying get smaller and smaller. What neurobiologists are doing when they study the microstructure of the brain from a Newtonian perspective is equivalent to organizing a trip to the Moon on the basis of Aristotle's Physics, neglecting Newton's theory of gravitation.
"The state of the universe is an objective compendium of subjective knowings". This statement describes the fact that the state of the universe is represented by a wave function which is a compendium of all the wave functions that each of us can cause to collapse with her or his observations.

It would be natural in the sense that everyone can do it, but with the current model of human biology this is not natural...That is what I was trying to say, lol.

Try taking any metallic object (one example would be a screw driver) and place it one centimeter, just above the bridge of nose in relation to the forehead. The sensation that you experience, is one that you need to replicate in meditation, without any tools. From there I feel that each of us are a part of an infinite puzzle, so your thoughts are relevant to get past the veil.
Using this as my basis I'd like you to reflect on a ball being thrown at you. In any one moment the ball is only occupying one space in our visual perception. Your intuition however has mastered the art of reading that wave of possibility including all the associated effects. Whether your consciously able to do the calculations or not, you intuitively know that at this many seconds in the future the ball while smack you dead in the face. So in the succession of moments between the ball being a distance away and hitting you in the face your consciousness has the time to affect the current probability to bring about another possibility. In this case, like a great symphonic conductor you orchestrate the waves of your body to move out of the calculated trajectory. Some with great musical mastery (athletes) and some loosely and less accurately (The clumsy ones). This is our talent of interpreting past and future and reacting to 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.
“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.”
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.

But the even stranger signals come in sometimes concerning events that there is just no way in heck anyone else could know beforehand! Like that two miles down the road, a bird will fly out of bush in front of you, causing your horse to bolt into a giant truck. You get signals, but there is just no way you can decode those correctly because the event has no basis to start from yet. But you learn through repeated experience that it is telling you SOMETHING...
