Scientists Discover Sixth Sense?
from the mindsight dept
Some researchers think they may have discovered part of what is commonly referred to as the sixth sense, which they refer to as "mindsight" - having your brain realize that something's not right before you can explain exactly why. The researcher in question claims that his studies show this is completely separate from actual sight, because the two "senses" don't seem to respond the same way in multiple experiments. There's also the interesting suggestion that some people in the tests who didn't appear to have "mindsight" may be drowning it out with an overdose of rational thinking, saying that what their mindsight is telling them couldn't be possible.
