Precognition – Parapsychological Definition:
Premonition is a feeling or impression that something is about to happen, especially something ominous or dire, yet about which no normal information is available.
[From the Latin præ, “prior to,” + monitio, “warning”]
Related Terms: Extrasensory Perception (ESP)
The acquisition of information about, or response to, an external event, object or influence (mental or physical; past, present or future) otherwise than through any of the known sensory channels; used by J. B. Rhine to embrace such phenomena as telepathy, clairvoyance and precognition; there is some difference of opinion as whether the term ought to be attributed to Rhine, or to Gustav Pagenstecher or Rudolph Tischner, who were using the German equivalent aussersinnliche Wahrehmung as early as the 1920s.
[From the Latin extra, “outside of,” + sensory]
A form of extrasensory perception in which the target is some future event that cannot be deduced from normally known data in the present.
[From the Latin præ-, “prior to,” + cognitio, “a getting to know”]
