As anyone living a life of continuous wartime stress from either the front line of battle or behind the lines can tell you, one develops a “sixth sense” to protect themselves—to include US Marine Staff Sergeant Martin Richburg, who in 2006, used his “sixth sense” in the Iraq war zone to protect himself and his fellow soldiers from hidden improvised explosive devices—and is important to note as what happened with Sergeant Richburg is part of the multi-million-dollar scientific research being conducted since 2014 by a team of US Navy scientists led by Dr. Peter Squire from the Office of Naval Research (ONR)—and are research scientists who know this mysterious intuition, called by many US Navy sailors and Marines their “Spidey Sense”, is provable and real—with Dr. Squire and US Navy Lieutenant Commander Brent Olde of ONR’s Warfighter Performance Department for Human and Bioengineered Systems stating about their research:
We have to understand what gives rise to this so-called sixth sense.
If the researchers understand the process, there may be ways to accelerate it — and possibly spread the powers of intuition throughout military units.
If we can characterize this intuitive decision-making process and model it, then the hope is to accelerate the acquisition of these skills.
Are there ways to improve premonition through training?…
