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.

About Dr Joseph S Maresca

I've taught approx. 34 sections of collegiate courses including computer applications, college algebra, collegiate statistics, law, accounting, finance and economics. The experience includes service as a Board Director on the CPA Journal and Editor of the CPA Candidates Inc. Newsletter. In college, I worked as a statistics lab assistant. Manhattan College awarded a BS in an allied area of operations research. The program included courses in calculus, ordinary differential equations, probability, statistical inference, linear algebra , the more advanced operations research, price analysis and econometrics. Membership in the Delta Mu Delta National Honor Society was granted together with the degree. My experience includes both private account and industry. In addition, I've worked extensively in the Examinations Division of the AICPA from time to time. Recently, I passed the Engineering in Training Exam which consisted of 9 hours of examination in chemistry, physics, calculus, differential equations, linear algebra, probability/ statistics, fluids, electronics, materials science/structure of matter, mechanics, statics, thermodynamics, computer science, dynamics and a host of minor subject areas like engineering economics. A very small percentage of engineers actually take and pass the EIT exam. The number has hovered at circa 5%. Several decades ago, I passed the CPA examination and obtained another license in Computer Information Systems Auditing. A CISA must have knowledge in the areas of data center review, systems applications, the operating system of the computer, disaster recovery, contingency planning, developmental systems, the standards which govern facility reviews and a host of other areas. An MBA in Accounting with an Advanced Professional Certificate in Computer Applications/ Information Systems , an Advanced Professional Certificate in Finance and an Advanced Professional Certificate in Organizational Design were earned at New York University-Graduate School of Business (Stern ). In December of 2005, an earned PhD in Accounting was granted by the Ross College. The program entrance requires a previous Masters Degree for admittance together with a host of other criteria.

Maresca Box 646 Bronxville NY 10708-3602] The clinical experience included the teaching of approximately 34 sections of college accounting, economics, statistics, college algebra, law, thesis project coursework and the professional grading of approx. 50,000 CPA examination essays with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Additionally, membership is held in the Sigma Beta Delta International Honor Society chartered in 1994. Significant writings include over 10 copyrights in the name of the author (Joseph S. Maresca) and a patent in the earthquake sciences.

    What a lot of bad information this author has put in this book! Cayce was certainly not a scientist; he only went to the 8th grade in school! He did not remember the things said while he was in trance at all. I have studied and also lived by the content of his Readings since the 1970’s, but this information about him, except for the sleeping on books part, represents a gross misunderstanding of his life and what he did.

    The memory things and other examples that he cites have nothing to do with intuition, which is a connection with the unseen world. It is not something that is learned or explained in an academic way.

    I am very sorry this book is out and about with all its misconceptions and downright false information.

    Since 1901, the information in the Cayce readings has been explored by individuals from every imaginable background and discipline. In addition to individuals from all walks and stations of life, this vast scope of materials has come to the attention of educators, historians, theologians, medical professionals, and scientists. No doubt, part of the attraction has been that regardless of the field of study, Cayce has continually proven himself years ahead of his time. Decades ago, he was emphasizing the importance of diet, attitudes, emotions, exercise, and the patient’s role – physically, mentally, and spiritually – in the treatment of illness. As a result, he has been called “the father of holistic medicine” and has been recognized for describing the workings of the human body and foreseeing the direction of health care.

    In the field of psychology, he has often been compared to Carl Jung. In the realm of education, he stands with Rudlolf Steiner. Dr. Richard H. Drummond, one of the world’s most renowned theological scholars, called the Cayce information on spirituality “the finest devotional material of the 20th century.”

    In history, the Cayce readings gave insights into Judaism that were verified a decade after his death. In world affairs, he saw the collapse of communism nearly fifty years before it happened. Even in the field of physics, a professor and fellow of the American Physical Society theorized a connection between the elementary-particle theory and the way in which Edgar Cayce received his information. Repeatedly, science and history have validated concepts and ideas explored in Cayce’s psychic information. The wealth of these insights has resulted in hundreds of books that explore various aspects of this man’s life and work, not to mention foreign translations around the globe.
