JustGeneric, I can tell you what's going on. It's something that's scientifically proven too.
However, it doesn't have to do with "the soul" or any wierd science or mysticism.
What you have is a sensitivity to the electromagnetic field that is produced by a living creature's body. For almost any creature that has a central
nervous system, you should be able to see an aura for it.
What is this EM Field that I talk about?
Well, it's simply the force of magnetism. Whenever there's a current, there's an EM field. If you take some copper, and roll it into a spiral
spring, and put a current through it, you end up making an electro-magnet, because you are aligning the magnetic field created by the wire.
Now, this doesn't have to be done with copper. It's for anything with a current - such as the current that keeps your neurons sending signals to the
rest of your body.
Human naturally create this EM Field.
Electric Eels have such powerful ones that they use it as a weapon! The electricity from their nerves being easily carried through the salt water. Try
looking at an electric eel in person - you might see something pretty amazing then.
Anyways, the reason that you can see injuries is because the nerves around the injured location are damaged. As such, the EM Field is a little "off"
Why is it you see it? Well, because your brain isn't wired to be able to process all the information your nerves are picking up (think of it like a
wireless internet connection), so it tries to put it into the information that's most similar to it, which is visually. There is no center in the
brain designed to process this information... yet (and likely not for another five hundred thousand years).
But it's real.
Now, if you train yourself, you'll be able to build a neural network on what these sights mean. You'll be able to tell that an "oozing" from one
place means something, and an oozing from some place else means another.
How real is this? It's as real as people that can see slightly into the infra-red or the ultra-violet. For example, I can see slightly more into the
infra-red than some people. Not by any meaningful amount, but just slightly so that I can see in a perfectly dark room some shapes. However, since my
brain isn't designed to handle that kind of information, it ends up looking like an "off-black" colour with a slightly redish tint.
You're seeing something similar to this. Your nerves are picking up on the nerve-impulses of others.
I'd imagine that if this were the case, then you'd see the main differences as following:
1. The Head. Tons of neurons, something about peoples faces and heads will seem different than elsewhere on their body. The closer to a person you
get, the more this should become apparent.
2. The Heart. There's a little organ that functions as a kind of ticker by the heart, it might be visible.
3. Hands. There's a lot of neurons to process all the information that hands have to work with.
4. Legs. There's a lot fewer, comparatively, neurons around your legs than anywhere else on your body. Theoretically there should be something
different about those sections.
Anyways, I think you're living with this. It's a genetic trait, although whether it breeds true or not is a mystery (or perhaps it's so random or
complex that we can't tell when someone will get it), but training it should allow to be able to use this extra sense to find out a lot of things.
