The Mind Is Our Wellspring: More Evidence
A vignette by Fred Leeds
A person I know is able to tell the day of the week of a future date without using a calendar. That person has what is known as autism, a disability so called, which rather seems to swing open the gates of the subliminal mind. Now there are only 365 days in a year; that’s 52 weeks with a day left over. So every new Tuesday for example is only 7 days away from the old. If a year starts on a Tuesday, the next year always starts on a Wednesday. The math is simple and the whole trick could be referred to the mind’s inner mathematician. The thing is, the day of the week gets predicted instantaneously. The inner math wiz must be tapping into the whole history of math as an invention from before it arose. The ESP and the math leap into being both at once, or seem to. Something deeper than either one and not contradictory, something inexpressible about the whole mind, is the real culprit. It is a self-sufficient little creature which we call intuition.
