And what about all of the times you don't? Or think you do, and are wrong?Tis coincidence, and nothing more - or so science says. If you know whose on the phone before you answer it -
How many people are likely to call a typical person?if you experience a DeJa-Vu - if you follow an impuilse that proves beneficial - if you experience a premonition about someone that comes true - if something tells you not to board a plane that later crashes - rack it all up as coicidence.
Think of the millions of events like this that occur daily all over the world, and then think of all those brainwashed scientific schlubs who chose to ignore this widespread evidence of human extrasensory experience - experiences that shouldn't
happen at all according to them.
And my guess is that people tend to remember the times they were right about who is calling, and forget the times they were wrong.
Think about this, one time I was driving with a friend, mentioned a celebrity, looked at the car next to us, and he was in the car. Wow, huh? But think of all the times I mention a celeb, and they aren't in the car next to me.
People have a tendency to, what I call, "constellationalize" , impose meaning/patterns onto randomness.(Like making constellations and stories out of the random spread of stars in the sky.)Each precognition no matter how small is self-evident proof that the world has a meaning never found by Darwinian or Freudian thought - that the self has access to an inner system of communication and perception demonstated in the evidence of experience.
Doing that probably has a survival advantage, and no real survival disadvantage. People who thought a random pattern of leaves was a lion lived to produce more offspring than those who though a lion was a random pattern of leaves.
