just today while in my cubicle at work, while listening to my iPod (BLASTING some Blue Man Group) i suddenly felt one of my coworkers approaching. mind you, i'm in my cubicle, facing the corner of two walls, totally oblivious to all sounds except the music coming from my iPod, and tapping my feet to said music, yet i could still sense my coworker's presence in crescendo up to the point where he was standing right behind me. below, you mentioned how you believe we have no soul, spirit, essence etc., and that everything about us is simply the sum of the chemical reactions in our bodies and brains. my question is: do you think it was a chemical process that allowed me to sense my coworker presence? or am i merely an atypical, strange (albeit cool
The same thing happens to me everytime I use an escalator, I'm listing to my I Pod full blast and but without even looking I move just enough so that the person behind me can move past me...The answer is that even though I can't hear the person or see the person I can sense/feel the vibrations of the people walking behind me.....It's kind of like if your standing on a sidewalk listening to your I pod full blast and a truck passes, you can't hear the truck or even see the truck but you can feel the vibrations under your feet....
