What I propose is to separate the
phenomena that has been collectively called the '6th sense' or
'intuition', into two quite separate concepts, or senses.
Sense number 6 - the nervous system as an
I propose that the spinal cord as well as the
peripheral nervous system, functions as a kind of aerial, or
receiver, for the frequencies of EM radiation that matches the range
that is transmitted by the human nervous system. I propose that the
brain has two halves partly because it enhances this aerial array,
enabling it a directional sensing ability, 3D so to speak. Just like
the eyes and ears - stereo.
This gives us the ability to sense when someone is
like us, or what their mood is, or when they are looking at us. The
'evil eye' relates to this sense. So does my ability to find people
just like my 'mother'. Simple learning is enough to explain why I am
attracted only to them. I learned that I am only allowed to be
attracted to certain kinds of people, and fear did the rest. Maybe
even some programming as well.
As you can see, the technological and scientific
precedent for this sense has long been set (eg - communication with
radio waves). That it is possible is not the question. But how? How
does the human nervous system actually decode the signals? Is the
tuning of this ability part of childhood development? Does a child
tune their sensation of the energy fields of those they know very
well, with their long-term behavior, then apply it to strangers? Is
this the same thing as an animal with a sense about who will harm it
Why don't people accept that there is more than 5
senses? So many people claim intuition is a vital part of their
decision making processes.
Sense number 7 - connection with the
consciousness that is the universe.
When people talk about being connected with God,
or their 'higher self', this is what I think is going on. I propose
that the entire universe has an overall consciousness. That people
can know things that they really ought not to, just by opening
themselves to information that comes through their intrinsic
connection with this 'universe-consciousness'. Clairvoyance, deja-vu,
making decisions based purely on intuition - doing what 'feels'
right. These are the sorts of things I think fit into this
A lot of people believe in this, in one way or
another. Not that I let them affect me for most of my life, I thought
they were just plain delusional. The argument that it's true because
a lot of people believe in it - they wouldn't if it wasn't true,
didnt wash with me. Still doesn't. What matters to me is what I have
Churches have taken advantage of being able to
corrupt these beliefs for millennia. They say that to connect with
god you must go through us special (and very rich) rulers and our
holy persons. This was a great improvement on the pre-Christian
situation, where only the royalty could connect with god, the rest
were truly pieces of meat. Christianity allowed a big jump in
importance for the masses, and discovered a more effective tool to
attract loyalty. Great way to recruit soldiers, too.
Aside from the political manipulation of these
beliefs, it shows that humans have had them for a long time. This
does not mean it is true, but it certainly is consistent with it.
It's not as if there is no precedent for belief in a higher
consciousness, or at least a much wider one. If it turns out to be
true, then we know what all these people have been doing all this
The concept of deja-vu brings into question the
traditional view of time. ie, that there is any. Scientists have even
gone to the extreme of saying time is a fourth dimension. Now
physicists are beginning to wonder if spiritualists are right after
all when they say time does not exist as we believe it to.
But how to explain it. What does it mean to say
there is no thing as time? I can only explain it by its supposed
consequences. When humans dream, they are traveling in time, IN
ACTUALITY. Really doing it, traveling about the universe like the TV
character Dr Who. You'd be motivated to believe it, wouldn't you?
Beats the crap out of going to work in the morning, doesn't it? But
if you believed it, would you be able to cope with going to work in
the morning? Probably not.
So, just imagine it, when you go to sleep, you
travel in time. What does this say about the reality of time (and the
rest of our existence), if it is actually true? And even if it was
true, how would you demonstrate it?
Here are some books that talk in much more detail
about this stuff. These are extraordinary books, for they give an
interpretation of our existence that is inspiring, eye-opening and
scary. They have really got me thinking a lot about my few little
strange experiences. But I still can't decide.
