A US scientist believes he has discovered clear evidence of a lost human ‘sixth sense’ – one similar to that which enables animals to navigate the globe by detecting magnetic fields.
For years, planetary scientist Joseph Kirschvink has been trying to find a definitive answer to a hotly debated theory that suggests humans have an in-built magnetically guided ‘compass’ sense.
The Experiment That Proves Humans Have 6th Sense
During the experiment, human test subjects were placed in specially designed, darkened space known as a Faraday cage, where they were then exposed to a cycle of magnetic fields similar to the Earth’s.
Through EEG testing, Kirschvink was able to witness repeated active brain responses to the presence of a magnetic field – a consistent reaction which up until now has reportedly eluded the scientific community.
Speaking to Science Mag, Kirschvink said the sense, which happens unconsciously, is “part of our evolutionary history.”
He plans to replicate his findings in the Southern Hemisphere, having already repeated the experiment successfully in California and Tokyo.
