Is there a sixth sense?

Many of us who acknowledge the existence of a sixth sense. We sometimes refer to someone has the special senses, can predict good or bad things will happen and see ghosts, spirits, and so on. However, if there is a sixth sense? Are there really people who have special abilities, can see something that is not seen by others?

According to a study published in the PLoS ONE journal, the sixth sense is actually not there. The ability to see the future and feel weird actually just a trick of mind which is interpreted wrong for thousands of years.

The research states that the ability to recognize something that is invisible or not known to come from a sixth sense or Extra Sensory Perception (ESP). Feelings have a sixth sense related capabilities actually just an experience of someone who is not given time to think about what they see and explain it in detail.

Piers Howe of Melbourne School of Psychological Science at the University of Melbourne conducted a study to ask a number of people look at the two photos of people who refer the same with slight differences, for example hairstyles. The photo was shown to a number of people for 1.5 seconds.

Between photos with one another, there is a lag time for one second. After looking at the two photos, respondents were questioned about whether there is a difference between the first and second and were asked to provide details of these differences.

A number of people were able to recognize the difference, but not able to describe the difference. This is the root of the notion that a person has a sixth sense. "They can be aware of changes, but they could not identify the change. Which is why they believe in the sixth sense is actually just nonsense," said Howe.

"It was not a sixth sense. What happens is they get too much information from which they could express verbally," added Howe as quoted by the Sydney Morning Herald, on Wednesday, January 15, 2014.

Howe acknowledged that a person may have the ability to see or feel more than anyone else. "But it's not a miracle," he said. According to him, human has a great brain and mind, wonderful things that happen in the subconscious. He said also, "it's more powerful than a sixth sense." *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE | PLOS ONE | SIDNEY MORNING HERALD]
