I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this, anyway. I earlier read some thread, or on the internet somewhere, about people seeing auras. The explanation was that people seeing them had more connections in the brain which connected the senses, enabling people to see sound etc. I am an engineering student, but this is real to me, so I'm just curious as to what it might be. I don't believe in everything I read, I will just explain what I have experienced and maybe you can refer to me some explanation, if there is. So, if I hold my hands so that my palms are facing each other rather close. The fingers can be either flat or cupped, or anything in between. After a few seconds, I can feel as if both hands are being attracted when I slowly (slowly!) move them away from each other and vice versa. The feeling is the same as if you would put your hand on a table, palm facing up, with one side of a magnet pointing up from your palm and then hold another magnet with the opposite side with your other hand above your hand and move it away and from the magnet. You would feel repulsion (I guess the attraction feeling would be similar too if the magnet was glued to the palm), when the magnet in your palm is slightly pushed down in response to the other magnet. That is kinda how it feels when I move my hands, from or away from each other. But in my case it's as if the whole palm is a magnet, a weak one though. It is very identical to the example with the magnet, if I move the hand up or down instead, or just slightly diagonally, I feel as if I can feel the shape of something. You know, as when you let one magnet repell another and you move it around a little. I also seem to be able to widen or narrow the effect, I can move my hands apart for like half a meter or 20 cm and still slightly feel it. I recently became more interested in meditation. While meditating (the first time actually), by the end of the session, I remembered about the whole experience with feeling something with my hands and decided to try it and it was the same as any time I tried it. My point is, I can replicate the feeling whenever I want to. Note, this has nothing to do with meditation or anything like that, I have never practised any asian "discipline" earlier. Though my mother used to meditate. I know this whole thing sounds somewhat silly, I don't believe I have superpowers and there's probably some simple explanation. It's just interesting. Anyone care to enlighten me?
