How do you define 6th sense? As ESP, Imagination, and/or other?

A 'tumor' of extremely dense brain tissue that gives a person the ability to see things before they happen. (wonder if anyone will get that)

I thought it was when you got treated by a dead psychiatrist.

I was making oatmeal for breakfast today and for some reason thought of my landlord. I munched on a banana I was cutting up into the oatmeal and saw his face so clear in my mind. The oatmeal was too hot, so I put it on the counter to cool and just grabbed the peel and the trash bag and walked out the door to take out the garbage and ran right into him coming up the walk.

I was in 3rd grade doing my spelling test when I thought about my mother. It was so vivid in my mind and she was angry and shouting and I was terrified. I went home and she had pulled out my bed and gone postal over her dishes and sissors and well. . .junk under there. I was definately in trouble and it had been months since she had even bothered me about not putting things under there.

I can pretty well tell who is calling on the phone. It is like I feel a breeze on my face and I know who it is calling, like I can 'smell' them or 'feel' them. Humn. .. "sense" them
with some sense I don't know what it would be called.

I could give examples all night, actually. I am not too sure what 'good' it does me, but I have learned to 'listen' to it. I have avoided accidents and other unpleasantness when I do. I have also kicked myself quite a few times because I have ignored it, too.

Seeing a little bit into the future is a lot easier and more common than people think. Time acts like water. Study the flow of water in a river and you'll understand how the future can be seen.

I'm an Autistic savant. I do have hyperacute pattern recognition abilities for finding right answers and spotting things amiss, also a sixth sense kind of predictive ability that is almost always 100 % accurate. I do have some ESP ability as well that I cannot usually call up but comes to me, for just one example, a sudden feeling someone was in the process of dying followed by a truck coming out of nowhere I could neither have seen nor heard beforehand, that pursued at speeds up to 80 mph on a Country road. It would be impossible for it to be a temporal lobe syndrome, since I get a vision of it just before something real and factual actually happens. I understand, however, these abilities have been medically documented to occur in Autistic savants. Can I explain it ? No. Do I have these abilities ? Yes.

The Sunday that Diana, Princess of Wales died I woke up and thought 'there's something wrong, I'll turn on the TV and see what's happening'.

A number of times I've seen something in the TV program guide such as Mythbusters and thought 'bet that's the episode about X (where X can be any episode of interest) and I've been right.

Twice I've known about getting fired from work before it happened, in one case the night before, yet nobody told me about it.

that is hysterical.... :)


It's something that keys you into the superstrings or something. Like I think some people have perfect pitch and they can detect the frequency of musical notes, people with abilities like this have better pitch than most of us at detecting the 'resonance' or characteristics of different dimensions.

I have remnants of it from childhood...I did everything in my power to squash it in myself. I don't think I was ever full-on psychic but I had some experiences and now when it tries to come back I have panic attacks. I don't know what happened...I'm all for self-knowledge but when it comes to this I don't ever want to relive it and I'd just as soon it stay forgotten. I watch that show 'psychic kids' and I am blown away by how brave these kids are to live like that every day. I can't do it at 40, the whole topic is terrifying to me.

Proprioception. That's just my personal pick, we have many senses.

i was watching Jeopardy! one day and the final Jeopardy category was "islands". before they went to the commercials, i thought, "St Helena". the answer (or question in this case) indeed turned out to be "what is St Helena".

this is only one, really specific example of the clairvoyance events i've had.

hi EquiisSavant, i know what you mean by getting a vision of it before it happens, it's like smelling bread baking on the air, you just know what it is that is going to happen. I cna't bring it on, it just comes. I don't know what other people or doctors call it, but I used to think that everyone was like me.

.


i recognize that too, subliculous, and sometimes I will catch a rerun of a tv show I rarely watch and it will be the same episode again and again, months apart, but that one is the only episode I catch.

The sixth sense is when you have access to information that does not exist in your material existence.

Mostly the information I get is very practical and relates to my own existence. Big things and small things. It's not dramatic, it's very lowkey. It's not always easy to understand, but it's always easier to understand than other people, hence I do tend to rely on it too much. I can ask people until I'm blue in the face to be straighforward when they talk to me, but they'll still throw riddles at me. So I hide in bewilderment and that's the way it goes.
