Knowing Before We Know
Most of us have experienced the sense of knowing things before we know them, even if we can’t explain how. Maybe you hesitated at a stop sign and missed getting hit by speeding car. Perhaps you decide on a whim to get your hair done at a salon across town and run into your long lost best friend (who is not on Facebook). Is this magic, or a deeper insight?
