Scientific Research Suggests We React to Events up to 10 Seconds Before They Happen

The Daily Grail reports on scientific developments that suggest a strange intertwining between the brain, consciousness and what we experience as time.

Via The Daily Grail:

Can your brain detect events before they even occur? That was the stunning conclusion of a 2012 meta-analysis of experiments from seven independent laboratories over the last 35 years, which found that the human body “can apparently detect randomly delivered stimuli occurring 1-10 seconds in the future” (Mossbridge, Tressoldi, & Utts, 2012). In the studies, physiological readings were taken as participants were subjected to unpredictable events designed to activate the sympathetic nervous system (for example, showing provocative imagery) as well as ‘neutral events’ that did not activate the nervous system. These readings showed that the nervous system aligned with the nature of the event (activated/not activated) – and what’s more, the magnitude of the pre-event response corresponded with the magnitude of the post-event response.

In a more recent paper, researchers have critically analysed these findings, considering possible mundane explanations for the results and also the implications of the results if they truly do point to a paradigm-shaking discovery…

  1. Sorta reminds me of Asimov’s “The Endochronic Properties of Resublimated Thiotimoline”.

    Are they sure they aren’t changing the outcome by measuring it?

      HA so its like the double slit experiment? good point, as we descend into the realm of the quantifiably weird.

    ‘random’ number generation. couldn’t be much harder than reverse engineering Einstein’s, Newton’s, or any other physicist’s “complete math work”, right? “always show your work”, they said.

    this has been known for decades
    10 seconds is the biggest number i’ve ever seen
    but 10 milliseconds has been verified many times
    in many situations

    wee mistakenly assume
    that the representation generated by our sensorium
    is reality

    The logical explanation for this is to be found in quantum mechanics, in the fact that we live in a holographic universe that materializes when observed. Meaning we already know whats going to happen in the future as we ourselves are creating that very future in accordance with our expectations of that very future.
