Research has found some human brains can pick up on rotations of geomagnetic-strength fields as evidenced by drops in alpha wave power following stimulus. For more, see ve42.co/magneto

They should try this experiment with some kind of tribesmen or someone who is close to nature, . these types of people will be more in tune with other senses that we civilized people lose or have become numb too. U can experience this just by being barefoot outside every day for a few hours ,u will notice a change in subtle ways but it will be noticeable.

I wonder if people who are more directionally inclined have bigger reaction to magnetic fields than those who don’t. This is really interesting!!!

Standard electrodes are very sensitive to electromagnetic signals in the environment, hence the Faraday cage to shield them out. I am wondering if the EEG signals are the artifact of the environmental electromagnetic fluctuation. The interpersonal differences between the sensitivity could well be correlated with the environmental fluctuations. As a control, the signals from the electrodes should be measured without attaching them to a human.

My father, older sister, and I are very sensitive to this, but there's also a solar aspect for us. My sister is currently living just south of the equator and she says it messes with her a lot, because the sun's movements don't align with her internal compass. But, we both have a cardinally linked memory thing where we orient ourselves to the same compass point as the memory when trying to recall information.

I have seizure disorder I have read that when some one picks up on a non static magnetic field stronger than what they are used to they may see burst of light known as magnetophosphenes .I would see these flashes of light many times before I'd have an attack.Makes me wonder if there is any correlation between the two.

I wonder how the brain scan would compare to a bird, or another animal that we know does have a strong sense of magnetism. Also whether you'd see a response difference with a farmer from a poor rural area over a citydweller, when it comes to the 'too much magnetic stimulus' hypothesis. Or even, accordingly, a difference with younger kids over older adults.

There is a device called North Sense in the body modification community which is implanted into your chest. I think the idea is that this device outputs a small vibration whenever you are facing north, and you wear it for some months before removing it. After removing it, your body has becoming attuned to identifying when you face north and people retain this ability indefinitely. Would be really fascinating to look into things of this nature and determine the amount of truth in that claim!

The human brain is flexible and can sense patterns. What's going on is probably the brain being slightly "disrupted" by the changes in the magnetic field. You can probably learn to notice if something happens to your senses and make the connection that it's because of a particular electromagnetic wave change but...i don't see how you can use that as a compass.

And this isn’t the only problem with shade balls. Max Liboiron, a professor who studies marine pollution at Memorial University of Newfoundland, did a deep dive (aggregator speak) into the story, and wrote: The black additive [in the balls] is carbon black, which isn’t supposed to be harmful when it leaches, which is great. Yet even with this precaution, most plastics leach endocrine disrupting chemicals that interfere with animal and human hormone systems (Yang 2011). Some endocrine disruptors, like bisphenol A (BPA), break down in water after a few weeks or months. Some don’t.

Many people do use cardinal references instead of egocentric ones. I know I do. In fact, it is difficult for me to understand egocentric references when given directions. I always prefer cardinal references (like go north.. etc.) I am not sure that this is due to me sensing the magnetic fields, because when I traveled to Japan, my 'compass' was 180 degrees off until I retrained it, which took weeks to do.

In birds at least there has been a recent study suggesting that they actually can see the earth's magnetic field as it distorts the light in wavelengths their retinas are particularly attuned for (even suggesting this ability improves during migratory season), applying a directional filter across their horizon. www.cell.com/current-biology/fulltext/S0960-9822(17)31605-6

wouldn't magnetic field create false positives inside the wires in the EEG at the beginning since they would induct a current inside them? also, information in our body are being spread with electricity and hormones. Magnetic field should technically interfere with brain's electricity

RE: 11:29, see what the linguist Steven Pinker has to say about cardinal versus egocentric directions. Places that (mostly) use cardinal directions are places where people live near an always visible landmark. It's much more plausible that the salient *visible* quality of these landmarks is far more important that subconscious awareness of magnetic fields. Also, RE 12:30, if our internal compass really were a victim of our modern technology -- it's possible -- then we'd expect to strong artificial magnetic fields confuse animals as well.
BlackBeltMonkeySong

@trapd00rspider That's precisely the situation. There's a few places in the world where a tribe's territory is very small, and always in the shadow of some massive obvious landmark. It's only two or three languages in the world. The landmark is always there, you live around it forever, and when you close your eyes, you still know where it is. And you can *teach* these people egocentric words pretty easily.
trapd00rspider
trapd00rspider Hace 13 días
That doesn't explain why a language would be completely lacking egocentric directional words, unless he claims those people never lack a visible landmark in any situation throughout the language's history, which seems unlikely.

I can't help but suspect that these kinds of results are due to the bodily content of magnetic agents. That this is an adaptation that if it exist only can manifest in individuals that will have magnetic elements in their body, and as such the tendency and resultant trends of such bodies is dependent upon a multitude of factors.

You can maybe feel it....... sometimes your going a place on foot and there is a "twisting" feeling in your head, enough to make you feel angry, but it's more like a subconscious thought. it's like it is just there, but if you try to focus down on it, ... it's gone... as if the act of thinking about it redirects and overloads it.

I had a pair of 'Clarke's Wayfinder' shoes with the compass in the heel when I was a kid and I was always checking where north was and where home was. I generally guessed right though I always put this down to being able to remember the turns I'd taken either on foot or in a car. It's certainly a skill I lost as I reached adulthood. Maybe there is a sense of magnetic fields. I've heard it's easier to get to sleep if your bed lies North to South.

Some people seem to know when UFO are in an area and I hypothesize that they may indeed by picking up on EMF produced by Electrogravitic propulsion and/or shielding, which may also exist in certain terrestrial/ military aircraft. As one who seems to know when anomalous phenomenon are present, I would love to learn more and I know of a few others who can do also do this but in other countries.
