Give me some time to research it...

Actually precog is true. I have some strange things that happened to me that was mainly precog. And it helped me lots of times. Sometimes I ignore that feeling and the outcome was worse

There are many other possible explanations though that could easily describe this, not subconscious reactions to hormones or your brain just figuring out things subconsciously.
What you describe in no way supports precognition or provides any evidence for it.

Favorite transcript, still available, of those who refused to accept, from an office window view:

"There's this plane, and it's getting closer..."

Some escape willfully from the mind, others think on it...it's all the same...

And, thanks to your 'ma bell slip-approach, they're text now, available for search.  Yeah, incl. the Osama Drama...

I have observed many reasons. But precog is still the most likely reason. I was very careful to research on other effects. And now I am very sure it is precog.

Actually, there was quite a bit of those who claimed premonition status for 9/11, one of the most famous a woman in NYC who also worked part-time for the NYPD as a psychic adviser.  They promoted her for awhile, and she was even listed on the Jamaican woman's site.  You know the one, that used to have that 900 number when they were famous.
Disasters are the most significant events that some have foreshadowing thoughts of.  Earthquakes are prominent, and I recall a gentlemen that at the time had nearly 40% accuracy at predicting earth quakes.  I forget his name, and many disclaimed him.  Some say he was statistical, as so many occur each hear, and he predicted at least 14 per high incident area.  But, in some instances, he gave apt description.  Like Kobe, Japan.  Where the quakes destruction was described by him with pretty good detail, accurately, beforehand.


I think I read somewhere that sometimes animals can sense when an earthquake is soon to happen, supposedly they 'feel' the earth's magnetic flux changing due to tectonic shifts...

Dean Radin's book, "The Entangled Universe" gave a few examples of psi precognition of 9-11.   No one definitely came out in the days before and said, "Hey terrorists are going to crash jets into the WTC!" but they posted some vague references to visions of tall buildings crumbling and associated commotion on some psi testing websites.  

Interestingly, Radin's data from psi testing links reported a curiously negative decrease in psi ability on 9-10 or 9-11-01, as though people with psi were subconsciously repressing their abilities because of the terrible scenes.   I'd upload his graph when I get a chance, show's psi tests' performance on a weekly basis for all of 2001.

In general, those claiming psi abilities need to back up their claims with demonstrable abilities, not just vague and fuzzy generalities.  Even I am skeptical of my own experiences two posts earlier on this thread.   I chalk it up to coincidence (for now...)

there are other explanations that psi or precog.  Check out this topic from psychology, "latent inhibition."   There was a study in 2003 by Shelly Carson of Harvard U on it.  

Latent inhibition is the amount of retaining of trivial info we keep in our subconsious memory, for example most people forget all the insignificant details of their daily experiences, and thus higher "latent inhibition" is what allows normal people to multi-task in their daily routines.  For example, driving to work while talking to a passenger and drinking coffee.

People who are very creative and/or intelligent tend to not forget all the small details are said to have low "latent inhibition", and thus for example you see the absentminded professor or artist who has trouble paying attention (maybe there is also a link to ADD but that's another issue.)

Anyway, the people with low latent inhibition tend to see more coincidences, more deja vu, and can connect seemingly disparate events in their minds.  

Maybe this could be an answer, may you have some degree of precognitive ability.  

Like Plato said, "Know thyself" !!!

As for me, I must have low latent inhibition, I can't drive my car and have a conversation, once someone asked me when we almost got to our hotel to translate something from Spanish to Russian and I drove around the hotel 3 times since I got so absorbed in my own thoughts... and they interrupted me asking "Why the hell do you keep driving in circles, just park!"
