We frequently discuss intuition. In contrast to logic, which makes conclusions based on existing facts, intuition is the capacity to acquire information at the level of feelings without the need of any analytical data.
The phenomena of the so-called “sixth sense” has recently piqued the curiosity of experts.
Describe the procedure.
The US Office of Naval Research (ONR) has taken up the research of this phenomena in particular. “The US military believes humans have a sixth sense,” according to a Time magazine article from 2017.
“We need to figure out what causes this so-called “sixth sense,” says Peter Squire, a program manager at the Office of Naval Research’s Expeditionary Maneuver Warfare and Counterterrorism Division.
People frequently refer to intuition as unreasonable, according to Squire. However, it’s possible that this is still a psychological phenomenon that may be explained scientifically.
If these mechanisms can be deciphered, perhaps new techniques to increase the intensity of the process and apply it to practical applications can be devised.
Butterflies and nausea are two things that come to me when I think about butterflies.
Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, Judith Orloff, MD, says:
“I deal with female CEOs in my private practice who want to improve their intuition. They consider it as a’superpower’ that should be employed in all work choices, as well as a guide to action for effective leaders and organizers.
The mechanism of the “sixth sense,” according to Dr. Orloff, involves the whole right hemisphere of our brain, the hippocampus, and the digestive system, which also contains neurons.
The functioning of the so-called neurotransmitters causes “butterflies in the stomach” or a sense of nausea in our intestines, allowing us to intuitively accept or reject certain items.
Remove the excess.
The journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, in turn, presented an analysis of a series of studies on the topic of foresight.
They demonstrate that our brain and body may react to random stimuli that occur 1-10 seconds before a yet-to-occur event. Physiological alterations in the cardiovascular, cutaneous, and neurological systems occur as a result of this.
And Gerd Gigerenzer, director of the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, argues that intuition-based judgments are linked to an instinctual knowledge of what information is unnecessary.
Predict the future.
A team of scientists lead by Dean Radin, Chief Researcher at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), ran a series of intuition tests with 26 persons who knew how to sustain a condition of heart harmony a few years ago.
Two weeks apart, volunteers performed two cycles of research procedures. They were not told the true goal of the study; instead, they were told it would look at stress reactions.
At the same time, one half of the volunteers conducted the procedures after deliberately establishing a condition of cardiac coherence for 10 minutes, whereas the other half did not do so.
The first group, on the other hand, did not go through the cardiac harmonization process until the protocols were completed, but the second group did.
The studies consisted of each person being seated at a computer and being instructed to hit the mouse button as soon as they were ready. The screen stayed black for the next six seconds. A unique software was used at the time to capture the volunteer’s physiological characteristics.
Finally, 45 distinct pictures were shown on the monitor in a random order. Each image remained on the screen for three seconds, and the program recorded the audience’s reactions. After the previous photo was erased, the following one was presented barely 10 seconds later.
It became determined that 30 photographs elicited a neutral reaction in the individuals, whereas 15 images elicited a significant emotional response, depending on the plot. But this isn’t as shocking as the fact that the matching reaction happened 4.8 seconds before the images showed on the screen. The “cardiac” response was the most severe.
“Information is first registered in the heart,” says Rollin McCraty, Ph.D., “then to the brain (emotional and prefrontal cortex), where we can logically correlate what we intuitively feel, and where we can logically correlate what we intuitively feel, and where we can logically correlate what we intuitively feel, and where we can logically correlate what we intuitively feel, and where we can logically correlate what we intuitively feel, and disturbs).”
According to the experiment’s authors, humans have intuitive or “heart” intelligence in addition to standard “brain” intelligence. It’s no surprise that we remark, “I feel it in my heart.”
Experts say that the only way to fully utilize our intuition’s capabilities is to practice with various circumstances. And sooner or later, it will begin to assist you in your daily life.
