Consciousness, Self, and the Prefrontal Cortex There is a basic question that must be addressed when pondering the nature of consciousness, and that is: why have consciousness at all? The brain processes a great deal of information below the level of conscious awareness, from visual to auditory to tactile, and then the integration of all of these before they can be brought into conscious awareness. Yet conscious awareness itself seems much more limited in the amount of information that it can handle at a time—5 to 9 “chunks” of information, at a time, it would seem.

Can your mind sense future events? A very interesting research shows that human minds have the ability to sense future events approx 2 to 10 seconds before they occur. Researchers suspect that the subconscious minds sometimes know more than our conscious minds. It has been found that the conscious mind only controls the brain for about 5% of the time and the rest controlled by the subconscious mind. This study called “Predictive Physiological Anticipation Preceding Seemingly Unpredictable Stimuli: A Meta-Analysis” shows that your mind actually has an energetic reaction to the future before it happens and before you are even aware of it. This phenomenon is sometimes called ‘presentiment’, as in ‘sensing the future’. Some call the phenomenon ‘anomalous anticipatory activity’.
