Fandango’s Provocative Question (10 June 2020)

Wednesday. Fandango’s Provocative Question once again. This week, he asks:

Do you believe there is such a thing as ESP? Or is what some suggest to be ESP merely that there are people who are highly intuitive and are very good at reading people’s very subtle signals?

ESP? Nah, not for me.

I think broadly in human history, we started off not understanding thinghs, and called them supernatural. Or will of God – I lump the two in the same category. Then bit by bit people started understanding little teeny bits, and called it science. For example, why the sky is blue in the day, black at night. What stars are, and why the stars appear to move in the sky when we observe them night after night.

I just think that ESP is one of those things we don’t yet understand. There are lots of things that we don’t understand.

Even my own experience with stroke – strokes are suficiently common, you’d think we would know everything about them, right? Wrong. I started getting we don’t know from about the second question. Really. There is an awful lot we don’t know, especially if we want to start talking specifically about the brain.

  1. I agree we know maybe a little bit of how the world and our brain works and everything in between.
    As for ‘ESP’, I think we all have our strengths and some people are better ‘feelers’ and other use more maths and reasoning to look at the world. We’re just like other flavours but there isn’t so much difference.
