    Well...it certainly won't make her rich or convince the skeptics.

    Hister is Latin for the Danube river. It has nothing to do with Hitler.

    So far that lady is way ahead of Nostradamus with her psychic abilities.

    or maybe there was nothing at tv and she couldn't decide between going to the bingo and watch a movie, so she decided "Hey! Why not make the whole world think I'm psychic? "

    Humans use only a portion of their brain at any given time. However it is fully utilized during the course of our lives. Its one of those scientific statements that have been misconstrued by laymen to mean something completely different from its original meaning.

    Lightbulb

    I had a dream months before 9/11 where I saw an airliner flying low overhead, while walking in the streets of an urban/skyrise area (that resembled NYC). I remember images of others in the dream who were kind of as shocked as I was, looking up as it went by.

    Of course, there's probably a million people who have said that, and I should be disbelieved. I would not believe me. My usual, conscious manner of behavior is skeptical...and there's no reason why some random person like myself should have that dream. Especially since I didn't have the means to do anything about it, and barely remembered it. You'd think the powers-that-be that would show things like that in advance would have given the duty to someone more responsible.

    I did hear one interesting suggestion by another person with a similar dream (and she said there were others who experienced it).. she suggested that the event caused such a ripple in time that the future echoed back into the present, and that those with even a slight awareness/clairvoyance would have sensed it

    Anyways, as for the woman in the original post, I don't know. Maybe the same weird rippling effect is at work even in small events..and that some very attuned, psychic people are sensitive to those. I don't even know what to think about the things I experience myself, so I'm not a good judge.. I got in trouble before for speaking about my experiences (besides the stuff I mentioned above), so I've disciplined myself with skepticism now. I kind of want to be as grounded as possible, and shoot things down these days. :P

    I agree with you, she's open to receiving and processing stimuli that other people deny exists. This does not seem beyond possibility to me at all. There is alot of energy in this world that most people are oblivious to, because they are too fixated on their Blackberries, iPod's, DCroid phones, and other crap.

    Considering the small amount of understanding the medical community has regarding the overall functionality of the human brain, I'd venture to say there's quite a few things we're completely unaware of.

    Also, it seems like most people think psychic ability is this "on all the time" ability. Isn't it possible that it could be situational? Maybe the right things happened at the right time to allow this woman to perceive the meaning of the energy she was exposed to, and make sense of it as she did?

    Also, different people experience things in different ways. I'm a bit schizotypal, and although I am a Sensor, and a hard and fast rabid observer of facts in my environment, once I lock onto them they start getting put together in strange ways. I also have very sensitive hearing. I hear things most others don't. Alot of times I ask people "What is that sound? That frequency? Do you hear it?" Maybe psychic phenomena are dependent on not only being able to "perceive" these stimuli, but also being able to put them together and make meaning of them. Without both abilities you only get half the picture, and thus none of the effect...

    Interesting stuff.

    The difference in opinions will count for the differences of those who believe in the metaphysical and those who disbelieve in it. Each will come with his own theory of how this would have happened.
    One must dwell into deeper knowledge to realise truth.
