'Gut Feeling' May Be Connected to Past Experience
``The bottom line is that sometimes when people get a hunch, it's not
mysterious,'' said study lead author Dr. Edward S. Katkin of the State
University of New York at Stony Brook. ''It's because people are in a
situation that has been associated with some event in the past--they might not
consciously remember it but their guts do. And so they get a sense that
something is going to happen.''
Useless hypotheses, etc.:
consciousness, phlogiston, philosophy, vitalism, mind, free will, qualia,
analog computing, cultural relativism, GAC, CYC, and ELIZA
