There is one skill in all of us that gets very little or no attention at all, A small minority has been puzzled with this phenomena that appears to repeat itself in different forms for some while most of us have have had only rare occurrences and we have just shrug them away as nonsense.
In fact we do not know any answers here but the science is slowly making exploratory trips to it and if this exploring continues the science is bound to get interested. The fact is that the science can change only "funeral by funeral" with the old generation making space for new one that is getting free to say what they think.
Today if someone says they believe on this the most likely answer for others would be a simple: I would not believe this even if it would be true! The topic we are talking is called "premonition". The Webster dictionary defines this as "previous notice or warning" or "anticipation of an event without conscious reason"
