Every time we meet someone, view an event, or simply look out our windows at the world, we take a mental snapshot. We may only take that one glance, or we may replay the image over and over, each time gleaning more meaning. Even though we may only take a casual glance, the mind files the image away giving it just as much importance as other snapshot.
Consciously, we develop perceptions just as a photographer who develops photos from film or tinkers with them in Photoshop. We zoom in on one or more elements while blocking others from view that we either do not find meaningful or are not ready to see.
Subconsciously, the mind holds on to all of those images we cropped out of the snapshot. They are there when we are ready to look at them.
When does perception become extrasensory perception?
Our minds are amazing computers that hold millions of billions of snapshots. Each element in a snapshot can be imagined as a puzzle piece. The mind can put together pieces we may not even be aware of from all the puzzle pieces related to a person or event.
Is extrasensory perception really just taking a look at a completed puzzle the brain has composed?
This Week’s Challenge: Using prose or poetry, write something (fiction, nonfiction, or essay) about extrasensory perception.
