I honestly believe that when my brain and nervous system were burned by sodium lye in my bloodstream at 18 months of age, I hooked into this somehow very similar to the way animals are hooked into it. We might say animals are hooked into it because they don't have the blather of conscious thoughts to drown out the signal.
I think in some way I may never be able to accurately explain, I still hear the signal despite an inner dialogue as sharp and intense as that of anybody else if not more so. I think my early trauma did something to me that enabled me to hear this signal despite the presence of a conscious mind.
So there you have it. Sounds nuts except I think if you've been reading Vault-Co for a couple of years you know it might be plausible.
I'll go a little further and say all of my precognitive flashes take place at night and not as visions or dreams, either, rarely if ever. I believe they actually occur under the surface in another part of my brain that never sleeps.
I suspect the reason that all severe Asperger's sufferers have such chronic insomnia is that there is a part of their mind that never shuts down and continues to run at night when they are supposed to be in deep theta. In fact, as they grow weary after dusk, this part of the brain is able to come into the foreground and exert itself more intensely. I don't think it is the subconscious because it seems quite rational in ways that other people's subconscious minds never are.
I think in some people, like me, it acts as native radar several years in advance of the fact.
Many paleontologists often wonder how it happens that animal migrations and shifts in behaviour in ancient times always seem to proceed the actual changes to the environment. It's because they have a radar that feels things. Animals know when itz coming and so do some people. I believe that sodium lye burned out a part of my brain that creates social conformity and consensus and once it fell silent, I could at last hear the ancient dormant mammalian part of the brain that watches for subtle changes in the environment that can save it's life and the lives of others around it.
I think if I had been on the coastline of Indonesia before the tsunami, I would have felt a strong desire to move to higher ground before it showed up, just like all the other animals there.
