This thread reminds of a couple of examples where human beings have
unequivocally developed sensory powers beyond the normal ranges.

Facial vision is one. This is where blind individuals can somehow manage to
navigate their way around a room because they can 'feel' the objects in
space. In one example a 15 year old blind boy could safely ride his bicycle
around the block! It appears that in some blind individuals echolocation
becomes possible, though the phenomenon is rare. What would be fascinating
to know is which areas of the brain are doing the processing.

In a Sydney medical center for treating individuals suffering a generalised
immune assault (allergies to everything) etc, great pains had been taken to
make sure the patients were kept in a allergy free world. The doctors
noticed that 3 of the patients consistently reported feeling something at a
specific point in a hallway, the 3 patients being remarkably consistent in
their reportage of the area of feeling. When they investigated this it was
found that directly behind the wall where the patients reported the feeling
there was a powerful transformer and its field was consistent with the
reports given.

I'm prepared to accept that these are valid interpretations of the above
events. Niether requires spooky explanations and both reveal just how
versatile that cortex can be.
