What is your opinion of ESP?
Here's a little background info from Wikipedia:
Extrasensory perception (ESP), also commonly referred to as the sixth sense, involves reception of information not gained through the recognized physical senses but sensed with the mind. The term was coined by German psychical researcher, Rudolf Tischner, and adopted by Duke University psychologist J. B. Rhine to denote psychic abilities such as telepathy and clairvoyance. ESP implies acquisition of information by means external to the basic limiting assumptions of science.
Yesterday I had what can only be described as an ESP experience. It's not the first time in my life something like this has happened but it was so extreme that I just have to share it with you.
On my way to a friend's birthday party I passed a little house nestled in the commercial part of the downtown core. Twenty years ago I knew the woman who lived there. We weren't really well acquainted but we did hang out a few times and I remember liking her very much.
I have passed that house many times and think of her every time I go by it but yesterday it looked as though someone had cleaned up the yard and so the property caught my particular attention. It was almost... glowing.
This is what I thought as I went by: "There is where Lorna used to live. I wonder where Lorna is today. I wonder if she still lives in Whitehorse. I wonder if I'll ever see her."
From there I remembered one of the wild nights Lorna and I had spent together partying in a bar and picking up a cowboy who walked us both home, first her and then me. (I also remembered that cowboy trying to convince me to let him come inside but that's another story.)
Not long after this trip down memory lane I arrived at my friend's birthday celebration. There were quite a few people there and I didn't know everyone. I had another meeting that afternoon so I had to duck out early. On my way out I ran into a woman at the door. As I excused myself I looked at her face.
It was Lorna.

Means external. Far... out.
