Following the Asian tsunami, scientists struggled to explain reports that primitive aboriginal tribesmen had somehow sensed the impending danger in time to join wild animals in a life-saving flight to higher ground. A new theory suggests that the anterior cingulate cortex, described by some scientists as part of the brain's "oops" center, may actually function as an early warning system -- one that works at a subconscious level to help us recognize and avoid high-risk situations.

Cool, I didn't hear about the aboriginals sensing the tsunami. Anyway, good for the scientists if they can find some part of the brain that they can cut out and say "This is it!", so they don't have to get all nervous when people do stuff they're not supposed to.

just in time to ease their fears, so I'm grateful (humongous attitude of gratitude) this time that the physical level is prepping itself, with some proof in the physical dimension.
Perhaps that's all they need to know for now without realizing that the physical itself is only the shadows or reflections off what is and always has been already exposed in clear light on the etheric level.

Yeah, it doesn't have to have any mysterious super-natural explanation. It is all just senses. So it is just that some people might be able to interpret patterns in the surroundings that others filter out or consider to be noise. Yeah, the slight rumblings in the ground, the pattern of buzzing and moving of insects, the murmuring of the wind, etc.

My 2 year old has been wakeing up at night crying,when iask why?he says the bees are buzzing,the bees,the bees..Know he talks about buzzzing bees all the time.should I be concerned.I do not allow him to watch or do anything unsupervised so i can not explain why he seems so upset about this.

03/26/06 Someone associated with Lake Martin in st. Martin Parish in Louisiana sd that for the last week or so she had been getting reports that their were no birds around and she did not know where they went. I thought this was very odd..and have been looking for animal 6th sense info since. By chance we drove through there the same day and did not see one alligator..unusual.  

21 Nov 2006 @ 15:04 by fakky @ : they do
most people belive that animals have a beter sense of there surroundings
then humans do. but i belive it to be on more of a premitive level.
such as there need to survive, that make them notice little things
(such as dogs knowing about a tornado).

Okay, first of all. To the woman whose child is hearing bees. Get him to a doctor. I don't want to scare you, but there are medical conditions that present in hearing buzzing sounds in the ears. Some of them can be serious.

Now, onto the aboriginals. I read an article some time back on aboriginals. It had to do with their sense of direction. A doctor/scientist had discovered that aboriginals have an organ that most of us either have to a lesser degree or have forgotten how to use over the years. This organ resides in the front of the sinuses and along the olfactory nerve. This organ has a form of iron in it. The organ seems to act like a three dimensional compass. Now the compasses that we are used to point north but this sort of three dimensional sensing organ can sense the differences in the earth's magnetic field and allow the aboriginal to home in on specific locations where they have been or lived etc... much like a G.P.S. system. Dr. Robin Baker and other researchers have done exstensive experiments. If the aboriginals are so in touch with this sense of direction that we have lost then it also seems logical that they might also be in touch with other things. As to whether they are natural or not doesn't matter. I mean what is natural.

There was and I believe still is a method of telling future events by watching the flights of birds mentioned(and condemned, oh well) in the Jewish religious texts from thousands of years ago. There are fortune telling techniques that use the pattern and sounds that leaves make in the wind that have also been around for thousands of years. So seeing patterns in nature... Well, the old people used to call the sixth sense and some people still do "the third eye", so possibly this is a matter of seeing what others have forgotten that they could see if they only looked.

A really well functioning military team is slightly more than the sum of it's parts. Why could the sixth sense not be an input of all sorts of different seemingly unrelated data and then some portion of the brain of the person who is strong in the sixth sense puts this data together in such a way that it leads to a seemingly illogical outcome that turns out to be true.

As far as I'm concerened we have a sixth sense and its the part of us that detects patterns and organization. And there's another dimension also and its the organization of networks and such. the axis goes from small simple orders to unspeakably large and complex ones.
