Confused about vision
December 26, 2018
I am confused about vision sense? Our vision is limited this means... The things we cannot see have something in it...like in air ...air is transparent this we know but actually it is? I am getting confused please explain me properly ...what us actual....

Some materials such as air and glass readily transmit light waves. See Optical Devices for some information on that subject.
Also, I updated the page: Sight or Sensing Light Images.
Hopefully, that will help your understanding. Also, check the resources toward the end of the page.
Best wishes for success in your studies.
I was confused
October 27, 2018
I was very confused and found it not intresting.
matt - USA (28767)
What the lesson is supposed to point out is that there are more senses than the commonly stated five senses. I'm sorry it was confusing to you.
Why don't we realize the inner parts of the ear?
January 1, 2018
If our ears have so many parts inside ,three bones, cochlear etc . then why we don't realize them when we hear any sound? What is the mystery behind this?
Koushik - USA (28371)
These parts do not have any extra sensors to indicate their use when you hear. It is similar to not realizing the various parts of the eye when you see things.
You realize the output for which the ear, eye, or other sensor is intended.
How do I know if my third eye is open?

How do I know if my third eye is open?
Magz - USA (28342)
The third eye is a concept of an invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. It can also be called the mind's eye.
If you are able to have internal perception of things, you may have an active third eye. Some people, can still see colors with their natural two eyes closed. This may be a case of their third eye being "open".
7-year old can see into the future
October 19, 2017
My son is 7 and claims that he can see into the future. I believe him because I personally have had dreams that have come true. How can I help him tap Into this talent in a world that does not believe in such things?
I would love to help him advance in this but don't even know how to talk about it with him.
Cynthia - Canada (28294)
Many people seem to be able to occasionally see future events (called "precognition"). Sometimes it happens in a dream, while other times the person juts gets a "feeling" that something will be happening.
However, it seems that the more you try to see future events, the less it happens. The ability usually happens when the person is relaxed and not trying. That is why is is so hard to measure the effect.
You can tell your son that seeing into the future is perfectly normal, although many people seldom experience it. One way to perhaps improve this ability is for him to recall how he felt when he saw into the future and then try to duplicate that feeling. However, I think it is better to let things go naturally and let him enjoy the occasion when he does see the future.
I hope that helps. Best wishes for a happy and productive son.
Thinks of things in great depth
September 8, 2017
Okay, so I feel like Im very different in a normal way though that it isn't normal....if that made any sense.
Its hard to describe so ill do my best but i always thought i just over think things way too much, like i mean I've always gone way into depth with things like to the point where it use to hold me back from things. For instance ill describe to my friends what I'm thinking of so well and use the best explanation possible they are mind blown and they always say to me "I would have never even thought about that but its so true".
Usually once I explain what Im thinking and why someone or an object did this, I always ask "have you ever thought about it like that" and they all say "No, this not normal to think that in depth, but what you said was so true i don't understand how you even thought like that".
So basically i say things that are so true and describe it so right. But according to my friends nobody would ever take the time to think that into depth with something so stupid or so simple or even complex.
Its weird cause I'm terrible with my words but when it comes to this i don't understand cause I'm terrible at describing things like how i feel about someone or telling someone my feelings. But its weird because i can't describe why i have this and why i guess its not normal They think i have a "magical power" or a "sixth sense" but i don't know if this is normal. or maybe it was just how i was raised but like i tell myself everyday how normal i am compared to people cause i can describe what people are thinking but in the same breath not in the way if someone came up to me and ask what am i thinking right now, i would have no idea what they are thinking that moment.
Its just weird cause i can get along and adapt to literally anyones personality even if they are crazy cause i know I’m normal and they won’t effect me cause i see everyones view points on things even if its not right but i can cope with them and get along because I'm so normal....? like i don't think when i tell my parents that I'm so normal like they don’t understand I'm not the average person i guess so many people are crazy and their thoughts aren't right and there is no reason for this but life.
I just don't understand how i can see things from other perspectives and know what everyone is thinking even if they haven't thought about the topic or subject really. I mean i guess thats the best way i can describe whats going on in my head over email but why do I feel this way?

It sounds like you have a very analytic mind. There are jobs in business and science where such capabilities are in demand. However, a person needs to know when to stop and to draw conclusions. In some areas, it is known as "paralysis by analysis" where the person tries to dissect issues to the point of not taking action.
Probably, in most situations, you can't think of the right words to use, but in special cases where you are extremely interested, you can describe things well.
You might try writing down your thoughts and observations. That could be an effective exercise.
Also, look into job descriptions where companies are seeking people with analytical minds. You could be aiming at a good future career.
Best wishes on using your skills effectively.
Can a person mess with your 6th sense?
June 10, 2017
Can A person mess with your six Sense if so how would you act
Michael - USA (28084)
Our definition of the sixth sense is precognition or being able to sense future events. It is different than being able to read or affect minds.
It is difficult or even impossible for others to mess with your senses, except by some trickery. You can usually tell if you are being tricked.
How is Braille used to extend vision?
January 2, 2017
How does Braille extend the sense organ?
Meg - Jamiaca (27780)
Braille is primarily used by those who are blind or have every poor vision as a way to read written material. It could be considered a "device" that extends the ability to read. However, it does not extend vision or the ability to see.
Increasing 6th sense
December 8, 2016
how can we increase our six sense of sensing any bad incidence in future. I experienced and it became true. I want to increase this sense
Shubham - India (27547)
You might look at Checking Your 6th Sense for some information in increasing that ability.
Can animals predict the future?
December 4, 2016
When stating that some animals and humans and plants etc. can sense danger, is it common for them to be able to predict when something bad is going to happen 24 hours before hand?
I've had multiple experiences where I started getting extremely scared and hearing voices and such, then the next day a car crash nearby or even the earthquake in New Zealand.
I need some form of resolution behind this, it's terrifying for me
Jasmine - New Zealand (27528)
Studies out of China show that many animals get restless and nervous hours or even days before an earthquake. They have used that behavior as an indicator. Animals are probably more sensitive to such things, but I would assume that humans could also sense the coming of an earthquake or other disaster.
Many people can sense future events (precognition or 6th sense). Sometimes it happens in a dream, while other times it is just a feeling that something bad will happen.
A funny thing about being able to sense future events is that the harder you try to do it, the less it happens. Thus, if such feeling occur, you might try to increase your feeling about it. This can often stifle that problem.
I see ghosts and hear things
September 18, 2016
I see ghosts and hear things and people calling my name is I have my father died when I was seven on Christmas eve my son Dyllis 32 and the husband died years ago I am remarried and I hear ghost in my house I always Trent and things came true I always hear things
Mary - USA (27299)
This could be your 6th sense working, but also traumatic events such as deaths of loved-ones can cause such intense thoughts about them that you actually hear and see images.
Sometimes purposely trying to think about such matters can actually stifle seeing and hearing things from your subconscious.
Are senses reliable?
September 2, 2016
WHAT MAKES A CERTAIN THAT THE FIVE SENSES ARE RELIABLE IN TELLING ABOUT OURSELF AND OUR SOROUNDINGS
AECIE - Philippines (27261)
In most people, the senses are reliable. Occasionally you may misinterpret what you see, hear, smell or such, such that you think it is something else.
However, some people have problems, such that their senses are distorted or the signals are not correctly transmitted to their brains. People with mental ailments may imagine things that are not there.
But for the normal person, the senses about themselves and their surrounding are pretty reliable.
Had dream about child and other person
September 1, 2016
The story is long but I will keep it short. moved back toward family with my only child. I had injured myself, was married to a man who I was not in love with (because of things he did that were more haneious then stepmother). I ended up there they had a child needed help.
Left what I was doing (following my dreams) to go help. I was to be the godmother and this child and I was close until I asked her mother to help for three days. The phone hung up. she said it was her mother. did not speak to either of them after called to say hi to little one and she wouldn't g err t on phone.
The grandmother stated her mother was talking about you and Melissa won't go against her. When I had to move back I didn't bother, uninvited she came to my apartment. Kept her shoes on and none stop for two hour. talked about her and how she changed. Never once asked about my son or why we came back. Well curiosity got the best of me and spent some time lies cold manipulator, covering her web.
I one night sound asleep-_- I was as awoken ; ,she said I'm not your goddaughter-_- three times, I opened my eyes a young man was with brown hair-_- white robe bet toward me and beautiful. I just woke up and didn't believe someone took the time to tell mmm ed. Her daughter also lying cold to me. Whom was that? I've always been watched over-_-this was divergent.
Heidi - USA (27259)
Sometimes dreams can bring out reality when your mind has been clouded by some convincing person. It is best then to go with your intuition.
I hope everything works out for you. You know that you deserve the best.
Sensing the future and sensing spirits
August 26, 2016
hii.. i hav read ur Article abt 6th sense n ol.. bt i wanna ask what kind of disorder is dis.. like in my case i can sense d present of any spirits.. yes its true dey exist nd dey contact us by entering in our body happend wid me many times... nd i can also see future in my dreams.. bt only sometimes.. nd it really cum true.. yes it wired bt also experienced dis...
MY question is can we control dis..sense or watever is dis.. nd what kind of combination is dis like seeing future nd feeling d presence of spirits..?
shina - India (27237)
It seems that many people can occasionally sense the presence of spirits, as well as to see future events in their dreams. These are senses that are often called para-normal senses.
Interestingly enough, the harder you try to have these experiences, the less they will happen. They usually occur when you are just relaxing an letting your mind be free. But also, by being alert to you body, you can improve your senses.
I can see into the future
June 12, 2016
I can see into the future for about an hour but it's been nearly 2 years seens and felt my 10 sense but now I'm always in my 6th or 1 sence.I just have to show you how to change your thoughts in the future by understanding what time when u hear or think or say in your head or mouth. Ivan show you if I'm in the same room small
Rakesh - New Zealand (27073)
You have sensitive senses to be able to foresee future events. However, being able to affect or change the thoughts of another person is not really a sense. It is uncertain if this is some sort of force at a distance.
