You longed to know such a place, you woke up on the day of the trip with a strange feeling and decided not to go. Hours later, he received word that his tour group had collapsed. Or, how many times have you thought of someone who could even be in another country, without getting involved in a tragedy, and then get a message from that person? In a conversation, who could not have guessed exactly what the speaker’s next speech would be?
Although such situations, in turn, have been widely reported as precautionary, thought-provoking, or telepathic, science still does not fully understand the existence of the “sixth sense.” Experts consulted Live well Defend that we do not have extrasensory perceptions beyond the innate ability of our sensory organs to guess or predict the future and ideas of others.
This field of inquiry, they continue, belongs to parapsychology, a “hypocrisy” that believes in “sensitive” individuals, perhaps even influenced by supernatural forces. While some had the “gift” or “power” to target the above phenomena, there were others who were able to reveal and correct intimate and distant facts that they did not even participate in. Or have “energy” sensibilities and privileged information through contact with objects and people.
Explanations for these sensations
Skeptics acknowledge that there is no shortage of down-to-earth assumptions about these anomalies. Have you ever wondered what could be the coincidence that many call “luck” or “bad luck”? Yes, because it is very rare to experience, predict, or correct something without a clue — or assume you are not. Also, we spend our entire time judging, interpreting, and making predictions, so when we do something right, the natural tendency is to overestimate ourselves.
The human mind can also be highly suggestive, especially when you are afraid of something like boarding a plane, undergoing surgery, or presenting yourself in a crowded auditorium. Therefore, for presentations, they may be due to fertile imagination, nightmares, excessive negative knowledge, and constant risk assessment, and may increase and reinforce anxiety: Anxiety, Stress, Remorse, personality disorders.
We are also affected by external stimuli, which are considered to be “superstitions” (sudden cold, loud noise, odor), causing unpleasant physical reactions such as cold, fear, and nausea. “We recognize what they are, but we distort the past when compared to the present,” explains Luisko, a psychiatrist and member of the APA (American Psychiatric) at HC-FMUSP (Hospital Das Clinicas, Faculty of Medicine, University of Sao Paulo). Association).
Survival instinct exists
Waiting and making sure something happens – especially when something goes wrong – is related to our survival drives and what we have learned culturally, which helps us not to expose ourselves to dangerous or unnatural situations. In this sense, there can be an awareness of what we want to avoid ourselves, fleeing or avoiding the skin of those we care about from badly intermittent places, deserts, dark, wild, very high or deep places.
Julio Barbosa Pereira, a physician at the UFBA (Federal University of Bahia) and a specialized neurosurgeon at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles), says that people who spend a lot of time together learn to anticipate each other, especially when they are loving. The precaution is then the ability of these entities to visualize potential reactions, difficulties, and risks of their occurrence.
Pereira goes on to say that the mystery of telepathy can still be solved by the abundance of co-operation, which he regards as an understanding of non-verbal language. “We have many very complex forms of communication. Even couples or parents and children who have lived together for decades can recognize and understand each other by looking at each other. Neuroscience research shows that reason interacts and affects each other.
Memory also plays tricks
The brain uses old data to override new data and sets standards to help us understand the world around us. In the process, forgotten documents resembling situations similar to the present moment reappear, giving the impression that the person had a preconceived notion, as through an anonymous information channel, and convincing them that it was “special”. Now, if you suspect that you have already lived through it, this phenomenon is also a deja vu.
“Carl Jung [psiquiatra suíço fundador da psicologia analítica] It connected the ‘sixth sense’ with the inner wisdom. However, while perceptions are important to our lives, they are quick emotional responses that validate erroneous and often misconceptions and bring back dysfunctional actions, ”says Salva, a psychologist at Faculty Castro Alves and an experienced LC Batista at HC (City Hospital).
Finally, for Skoka, the future can only be hoped for from the development of our cognitive abilities, through cognitive-behavioral therapy and the support of professionals. “Thus, we know ourselves better, modify behaviors, and train ourselves to predict reactions because we learn to recognize in ourselves the thoughts and feelings that lead us to harmful actions.”
