Clairvoyance: these messages from the secret channels of the mind are images suddenly making their appearance to warn us about the future…
Many abilities of the human brain still remain hidden from scientists. Yet, only a small percentage of human potential has been known after years of research and much effort. This gives us insight into just how monumental the human brain really is. Take clairvoyance, for instance, there is no real indication of just how much we know and understand.
What exactly is this ability, why can’t we all have it? How hard is it to look beyond our world? How does it work?
The ability to see things, people and events that are going to take place in the future, or clairvoyance, is becoming more fact than fiction. People are becoming more aware of these phenomena and find it normal to use unknown sensory abilities.
On the other hand…
Clairvoyance caused much controversy in academic circles regarding what science will accommodate this phenomenon. Eventually, this responsibility fell on the parapsychology, a science that does not share the same fate with the accepted sciences. Many people call it pseudoscience and do not accept even the existence of phenomena it studies. In the same way, there are many people who doubt the existence of the clairvoyant ability.
Clairvoyance is a phenomenon that falls under the category of ESP (Extra Sensory Perception), which in turn, is studied by parapsychology.
The term ESP owes its birth to German researcher Dr. Rudolf Tischner, who first used it in his work Über Telepathie und Hellsehen, Experimentaltheoretische Untersuchungen: Bergmann, Munich 1920 (“Telepathy and Clairvoyance, Research in experimental stage“).
The term ESP is now used to express all the parapsychological phenomena that are directly related to the operation of our senses. Instead, phenomena such as telekinesis are not included within this definition as they relate to our kinetic function.
Despite the fact that extrasensory phenomena had never been taken seriously in scientific circles, there were researchers who tried to explain what really happens in people manifesting such abilities.
There remains still so many unanswered questions
But this did not seem to end the harsh criticism of the parapsychological phenomena, and other scientists such as mathematician Shannon W. Weaver denied the validity of the results.
Now, in the 21st century, the only thing we can say is that the battle between the parapsychology and the other sciences still exists. The conflict between the elasticity of perception and the rigorous rationalism will continue to concern us… Does clairvoyance really exist? I believe it does. Will we be able to prove this phenomenon beyond a shadow of a doubt? I’m not so sure.
One thing is for certain, our brains have much more to reveal to us in the future.
