How many of these people will 'follow hunches' or 'go with their feelings' on a matter? This is not to say that the 'bandwagon' theory of 'if so many believe, it must be true' is true. But it does say something about human nature for the need to follow something beyond their consciousness.


Agreed, but are these 'hunches' perhaps similar to the intuitive 'knowledge' in the animal world. Does a bird contemplate where it should make its nest and make a rational decision based on some kind of reasoning, or does it follow its gut-feeling ? Perhaps some kind of combination of the two ?

Does a bird fear the ghosts of dead birds haunting his tree at night ? That seems doubtful.
