Psychic Intuition-Everything You Ever Wanted To Ask But Were Afraid To Know by Nancy Du Tertre explains how animals and humans perceive and act upon information on a broad scale, which encompasses the experiential domain, logic, intuitive judgments, and even non-human senses.
Nancy Du Tertre explains that intuition operates on a broad sliding scale controlled by the ratio of rational to irrational and conscious to subconscious thoughts. The main difference between a smart guess and psychic intuition is the amount of data at your conscious disposal. Psychic ability is therefore a different flavor of intuition. Psychic ability is just a natural extension of our ability to make an educated guess. Intuition uses creative past experience, rational thinking and judgment calls. Sometimes, intuition involves a hunch or gut call.
Du Tertre refers to various types of non-human senses. For instance, echolocation is the ability to sense the environment via echoed or reflected sounds. Bats, whales, and dolphins have the ability to create a mental map of their environment via echolocation.
Animals such as migratory birds, salamanders, hamsters, dolphins, and honeybees have been found to be able to sense the earth’s geomagnetic field in order to orient themselves and make survival decisions. Du Tertre mentions other senses which have yet to be explored like thermoception, and proprioception or the sense of a body’s location or space. Sharks, eels, fish and rays possess electroception or the ability to sense electrical field patterns and even auras surrounding the body.
Du Tertre documents how Edgar Cayce, the noted psychic and scientist, was said to have the ability to sleep on his books and retain the knowledge contained in them. The Croatian born inventor Nikola Tesla was known to memorize many complete books effortlessly.
Professor Allen Synder, a neuroscientist, could simply shut down the left hemisphere of the brain using transcranial magnetic stimulation. His studies showed that the subjects could vastly increase their artistic ability and mathematical skills. This feat could be done within a quarter of an hour after receiving the magnetic stimulation of the brain creating instant savants out of seemingly otherwise normal people. By inhibiting the left brain, the right side of the brain would flourish.
Kim Peek was a superstar savant who committed 12,000 books to personal memory, according to the author. While reading a book, his left eye read the left side of the page and the right eye read the right side of the page.
Psychic Intuition is a bold thrust into the unknown area of perception, clairvoyance, and psychic phenomena. The author attempts to explain these concepts using known scientific precepts.
The analysis succeeds in some areas, such as thermoception, proprioception, echolocation, and intuitive judgment calls. Du Tertre’s analysis awaits further investigation by science in the all-important area of causality. The implications of Cayce’s ability to literally absorb knowledge could have revolutionary implications for how students could learn in the future.
