  • Questions on the edge of science

    Hi everyone Ė itís my first post, I come in peace. Iím really interested in your thoughts about the following.

    Iím looking for those everyday questions about human behaviour that live on the edge of science. Questions weíve often wondered about, but science is at odds to fully explainÖ

    FOR EXAMPLE:

    Why do we turn around when someone looks at the back of our head?
    Why do we think of someone right before they call?
    Why do we wake up just before our alarm clock goes off?


    I know in some cases science offers *an* explanation for these, but run with me here. I'm interested in the questions rather than the answers.

    Are there any questions like this you've ever pondered? That you suspect science might one day explain (or not)?

    I don't understand. How could the questions you seek be substantially different from the question in your post?
    You might try the Google scholar app. for research papers on your questions above and you might just type in that interesting title of your thread and see if you get any hits. The "scholar app." is one of the standard apps. on Google's home page. You don't even need Google Chrome.

      Have you heard of Rupert Sheldrake, Simon? The questions you're asking are the main area of his research.

        Exactly! I've done some reading on him and it really is solid stuff.

      Have you ever walked into an empty room and realize you are not the only one there?

      All of this is connected.
