Maybe its ourself (Our soul) checking the other soul out or making a slight acknowledgement or gesture

I think we lost the ability a long time ago. However we have all had that feeling when we accidentally lock eyes with a stranger and for a moment feel some kind of connection then carry on with our everyday lives. I think this is the remnants of some kind of telepathic communication we lost a long time ago. Our soul knows whats its doing however i feel the physical body is the part that makes us ignore it and carry on walking by.
The physical body is conditioned to many other forms of communication now such as talking, illustrating, phones, computers etc etc we have forget how to communicate any other way however once every now and again this scenario happens and gives us the "What just happened there" feeling

The eye thing is kind of weird for me. 90% of people, I can't stand to look them in the eye for more than a split second like you say. But there are a select few people I know who I feel very comfortable with and I can just look into their eyes while I talk to them. It's not just because I know them and feel comfortable around them either. Sometimes I just meet people and I am immediately comfortable just gazing into their eyes.
I think everyone has the 'crowd anxiety' thing to lesser or greater degrees. Humans are not naturally supposed to school together like fish, hundreds of us shoulder to shoulder. So it is a bit uncomfortable to do so, especially once you throw all the noise and chaos into the mix.
And of course nearly everyone has felt like someone was watching them and then turned around to see someone standing there at one time or another.
I am interested to see the turn this conversation is going to take.

When I briefly lock eyes with somebody-I feel like I am looking into their soul. Then flashes about them spring up in my head for an instant. I can sometimes feel the emotions of those I come in contact with in a mall and have even made a point of speaking to them to find my feelings are correct.
I have learned to be careful with the ability. I don't want to be too invasive about somebody's life. I have been able to detect people who are being unfaithful to their partners, or those who have bad intentions.
I think we may have used it in the beginning before we uttered our first words. I believe that we do make telepathic links when we make eye contact, but are afraid of it.
I can often tell when somebody glimpses me and is able to read me; as I them. It can be a bit unnerving. When it is done to me;it feels like I am being scanned. I have learned to smile when this happens and the person smiles back.
