I wasn't thinking about anything, just working like a machine. But I had to consider his question. Was I psychic?

"Well, if I am I cannot think of a more worthless psychic power," I told him. "If it can't save a life or win a lottery for me what good is it?"

That would just be my luck. Psychic powers prove to be real and THAT'S the one I get. Perfect.
It gets worse than that. Most of psychic forces disappear under rational scrutiny. It's like trying to see in a mirror how do you look with your eyes closed. Or trying to remember what your last thought would be before getting asleep.
If you can still pull off the trick after your co-worker told you, then that would be really something. My guess is you'd have to forget and get immersed in work so your psychic powers start working again.
Maybe I spoiled your psychic powers by telling you the above, in that case I'm sorry, nevermind Big Grin


Anyway, I get intuitive hints quite often, but just a few seconds before they actually happen. Usually things like what number is going to get generated on my e-reader gamebook app (after I pressed the button), or who am I going to walk into on my way to the dorm bathrooms. The intuition is there, it's just so subtle that I rarely act upon it, if there is anything to do about it. It's not very helpful, but it saves me some surprises. I keep not doubting about it, hoping it will grow into some more useful ability.

If you claim there are nuances to principles, there are no nuances to getting arrested or shot for disobeying the power.

I am not sure what spotting a plane is. You are probably correct. I have been into keeping birds (parrots) for quite a few years now. I know it is going to sound odd to you, but I can tell just by facial expression whether a bird is happy, sad, angy, or jealous. Bird, despite having a beak instead of a mouth actually smile. So, even if not obvious to everyone your brain can spot extremely small differences if you do the task long enough.

Besides delusions,confirmation bias and scams...
If something depends on your brain doing a special function, you can`t do something opposite without disruption. Classical scientific tests are also rather stressing, as Kanarev said, scientific truth is never born in dispute. Subtle human-dependent phenomena need friendly environment to grow into testability. I would recommend methods used by John Heron,like a method of co-operative inquiry or Heron`s beard,a method of management of ambiguous experience.

Anyway we are better off testing just people who cllaim their abilities work always no matter what is happening. Like me,with me its solidly neurologic and independent on moods and all.
