Can a sense be evolved to give and advantage?
December 27, 2014
Why is the '6th sense' always considered to be some kind of future prediction. All animals and life as we know it is dictated by five senses, sight, sound, touch, taste, and smell. No animal or creature that is created on this planet has had a different type of sense. But why wouldn't this be possible? As animals evolve we develop traits that give us an advantage in our surroundings. would it not be possible to develop a sense that percieves something different, not future predicton, but maybe the passage of time or something. we percieve the passage of time, that perception that may also be considered a sense. Could an animal develop a sense that is past our capability of understanding, will humans eventually evolve to a state where we have the ability to sense different things, that we currently cannot comprehend?
at the very least this idea creates an interesting movie or book. what is your opinion? can a creature evolve a different sense to give it an advantage, why would we limit ourselves to five senses, could it be possible to have many more than five senses?
A - USA (25666)
Actually, scientists have found more than five senses in animals and humans. Sharks can sense electrical fields in the water. Some birds seem to be able to sense magnetic fields. Also, the sense of touch could be divided into sensing pressure and sensing heat. Animals and plants can also sense gravity. We also all seem to sense the passage of time.
I agree that there must be a purpose for the development of certain senses over others.
As far as sensing future events goes, it does seem a stretch. However, many people seem to have had such experiences. There are also some who claim to have psychic powers to predict the future or to look into past events. Perhaps the 6th sense for both future and past events could be something spiritual or related to other dimensions.
I know there is a book and movie called "The Sixth Sense" about a child who had visions of dead people. Perhaps a different spin on the topic to show the development of a sense that would give an animal or person an advantage might be quite interesting.
Thanks for your comments and best wishes in your investigations.
Using technology to perceive other energy forms
December 27, 2014
Just looked at some of your other articles, saw that you said tempertature, time, and the perception of gravity are our other senses. And you mentioned how birds can possibly sense magnetic poles, and eels can sense electromagnetic fields. probly should have read your other work first LOL but do you think that humans could forcibly create the perception of another sense using technology or another form?
A - USA (25667)
Often people will read one article and not check similar ones.
Technology will often extend senses, like seeing in the dark or hearing subsonic sounds.
Except for sensing time, most senses detect or perceive forms of energy. But there are forces and forms of energy that we have not yet been able to detect directly.
Mother had feeling I had been in an accident
December 27, 2014
sorry to send so many emails but i figured i would share a possible experience for a sixth sense (the future prediction kind)
when i was thirteen i was in a car crash where the car flipped over, luckily nobody was hurt in the vehicle but it was a crazy event. mere seconds after the event occurred my mother called me, i answered and told her i'd call her back in a minute. I called her and explained the situation.
she explained to me that she felt that she should call me for some reason and see if i was ok, she had no other reason to call me at the time. she decided that it was some sort of extrasensory perception that gave her the intuition to call.
thanks for reading my emails and good luck with your work

Having a premonition like your mother had is not uncommon. I would classify it as a form of the 6th sense.
Interestingly enough, for some reason my wife Googled the name of her nephew, who she hadn't talked to in years. She then saw an obituary from the week before that said his wife had just died. This is another example of these strange premonitions or feelings about some event.
Examples of high and low pitch sounds
August 8, 2014
What are some examples of things and animals with high and low pitch sounds? thank you
- USA (25251)
Since mice squeak in high pitches or frequencies, cats are able to hear high pitches in order to hunt for the mice.
Elephants can make low frequency sounds that travel for miles. They also can hear such frequencies.
Thunder gives off low frequencies, while squealing brakes give off high frequencies.
Has video of spirit walking in her bedroom
July 13, 2014
my name is judy, if theres any question of a live spirit I have one on video walking from my wall into the bedroom, and no it isn't a person, its a spirit and you can see that, ive seen spirits before, not often, I also predicted a couple of things that came true, Im not sure if it is a gift or a curse but I know im different than others, I saw a spirit, a beautiful woman walking past one of the blds that I live near , I asked if anyone was killed there, I was told a woman was killed by a man that was infacuated with her, he killed her when her husband went to work, I described her and they said that's what she looked like,i feel alone with this and scared to tell anyone , that they would think I was crazy, so I keep it to myself, I saw your sight and saw I could right a message , I had the video of the spirit freeze framed and enhanced
judy - USA (25110)
Thanks for sharing your experiences. Many people can see into the future and past, but not too many have actually communicated with spirits. It probably is a similar talent or sense.
People who have not had such experiences might say others were crazy. Others just keep to themselves.
I don't know what reaction you would get if you put your video on YouTube.
I believe is the 6th sense completely
June 24, 2014
I believe in this fully because I have a tendency of really freaking people out with some of my ability to be spit one whether if I want to be or not. im still trying to understand my abilities and haven't understood fully why they happen.
they come at the most random of moments and they are vary quick and and end very fast. but even with things like going to the store and getting a lotto ticket. or scrach off my friend went in and got two tickets I told her the to not buy a third one. it came out a loser.
and when somethings not right ill tell u and be spot on about I wone my first trifecta at a horse race and never did a horse race a day in my life. but I didnt get the two thousand because there was a disqualified horse. but still walked out with more than I went in with.
I took preseason football and circled most of the winners I thought would win out of all the per season months I olny came out with six losers not olny did I do preseason. I picked six games from the rest of nfl season and thay all came out winners.
I almost made my best friends brother poop his pants. and ive kind of grown acoustic to it and would like some help with my ability to understand and cope with it if I can get help abie I can understand it more need input please help me it kinda scares me sometimes.
but then again I do come from a line of witches and native American background and my dad and step mom it comes naturally to them too.

Thanks for sharing your experiences with seeing into the future.
Son affects electronic devices
February 13, 2014
One of my grown children has an effect on objects like smart phones, TVs & other electrical items. The TV may change channels, smart phone may lose information & then get it back (this happened on a couple of phones). Some items just stop working & in a few days begin working again. He does NOT welcome this phenomenon.
Jean - USA (24513)
It is difficult to pin down the reason for your son's problem.
Some people have a body chemistry that seems to be prone to collecting electrical charges. Another reason could be extremely dry skin that builds up charges on the clothes. Typically, they often get static shocks when touching metal objects.
This may be what is happening to your son, such that it affects electronic devices.
An acidic diet can cause the body to be more prone to electrical charges. If it is dry skin, avoiding polyester clothes could help.
Your son can try looking into those possibilities. Hopefully it will help.
Best wishes for him to solve his problem.
Frequency of dog's bark
February 1, 2014
sir can frequency of dogs vocal cord is equals to human frequency vocal cord
HIMANSHU - India (24476)
Just as dogs can hear sounds slightly above and below the frequency range for humans, their barks also extend slightly beyond the human range of speech.
Puppy seems to hear sound at same time every night
January 13, 2014
There is a broadcaster on THE TODAY SHOW that claims her. Ew puppy runs around in circles at 5:03 pm eastern standard time for a minute nitely for no apparent reason. Could this be a radio or satellite broadcast unheard by human ears. They r in NYC. Thanks erin
Erin - USA (24429)
It could be in anticipation of getting supper. Or perhaps there is some high pitched alarm or signal that goes off at that time. It wouldn't a radio or satellite broadcast since those waves are electromagnetic.
Which animals have the best hearing?
January 13, 2014
Can humans hear peoples and store alarm systems and what mammals/animals have the best hearing?
Erin - USA (24430)
The ears in many animals are shaped to focus sound, thus making their hearing more sensitive. Look at the ears of cats and mice for example.
The frequency range of the sound an animal or human can hear depends on what sounds they need to hear. Much of what a human hear is in the vocal frequencies. However, a cat needs to hear higher frequencies of mice and other animals they are hunting.
See: Hearing Pitch or Sound Frequencies for more information.
Used to be able to sense things about people
December 21, 2013
I used to be able to since things about people not to the future or anything like that. I could sense where people have been what they had done where they were from sometimes our intentions. I could do this with people had never met before. For some reason I've almost lost his ability over the years I don't know if it's because I just stopped using it as much or maybe I showed off one time to maney but I only since things every now and then with certain people. I don't see spirits words to the future anything I just know things about people. And not nearly as often as I used to. If there's anything you could suggest to get this gift back or to help me with it it would be greatly appreciated.
sealitia - USA (24363)
Instead of sensing future events, you seem to have the ability to sense past events, especially what other people have done and such. But also, you've been able to read signals people give off about themselves, such as body language and even odors. Much of this comes from subtle observations--and not purposeful observations--you have made.
It seems that as people get older, their ability to sense future events diminishes. Likewise, for other types of special senses. One reason is that life becomes so cluttered and busy that you don't take time "to small the roses" as they say. Another reason is that you may be trying too hard.
Recall what you did and how you felt when you were able to sense things about other people. It wasn't trying hard, but it just seemed to flow and happen. By relaxing in your interactions you should be able to get those feelings and insight again. Just let it happen and don't dwell on it.
Hopefully this will help you get your "powers" back again.
Best wishes, and let me know how things work out.
Sensing when bad things will happen
July 17, 2013
My name is Josh, I live in Winnipeg Manitoba. I am 24 years old.
I have had "feelings" or "sensing" when something bad is going to happen throughout my entire life. When I was 12, a few days before October 3, 2002 I had a bad feeling something was going to happen to someone close to me. On that day my grandfather past away. This has happened countless times since then but I have not kept track until recent. In January of 2012 I had this "feeling or sense" again. Mid January my father was diagnosed with lung cancer. Most recent was yesterday, July 16, 2013. I was telling friends/ co workers days prior that I have been feeling off and unsettled for the last 3 or 4 days then yesterday my sister got into an accident.
Josh - Canada (23871)
Thanks for sharing your experiences. Some people seem to have the ability to sense future event more than others. Unfortunately, it seems like they mainly sense bad things. But that may be because they are more traumatic. Sensing that something good will happen is often ignored as wishful thinking.
Several times I just knew I was going to win a raffle, and I did. That was better than sensing an accident.
I don't know what you can do about sensing bad things, but perhaps you could try to notice when good predictions came true.
Why can I feel things others can't?
April 29, 2013
I am 24 years old and for as long as I can remember I have been able to see and feel things others couldn't! why? does this make me weird? and why does it only happen every now and then and not every day?
stephanie - USA (23658)
Everyone seems to have the 6th sense or precognition, as well as other extreme senses, such as sensing magnetic fields, except that they are weak senses.
Some people have greater sensitive toward the 6th sense than others. The strange thing about such mental senses is that the harder you try to use them, the less they work. Usually people can see the future, auras, or such when they relax and don't try.
Being able to sense what others can't can be annoying, especially since you hesitate to tell other about it.
The best thing is to accept it and look at it as a curiosity.
February 20, 2013
Can a person with synesthia that is color /taste only taste one color or would they taste every color they saw? Does it work like that?
Annette - USA (23214)
Color/taste synesthesia is not very common among those experiencing the phenomenon. Also, it seems to be limited to a few colors and tastes.
How do senses relate the knowledge?
February 17, 2013
the senses are the gateway to knowledge,discuss.
umar - Nigeria (23206)
You gain information about the world around you through your senses. Also, when people or even animals communicate, you interpret what your senses detect and turn the information into knowledge.
Without your senses, you would gain no knowledge.
