    Ever have the feeling your being stared at, you turn and look right at the person and of course they turn away. Or vice versa, your staring at someone, even from behind, and its almost as if they sense it....they turn right around and look at you, and you turn away.

    How do we know or feel someone is staring at us, or how do they feel or know we are looking at them?

    The Sense of Being Stared at: And Other Aspects of the Extended Mind
    by Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D.

    About this title: Have you ever had the feeling of being watched? Over 80 per cent of the population have experienced the sense of being stared at. Conversely, most people have found they can make others uneasy by looking at them, even from behind. Recent experiments have provided hugely significant evidence for the reality of this sense. Somehow our intentions, and our attention, reach out to touch what we are looking at. Our minds are not confined to our brains. Once the influence of the mind is admitted to extend beyond the head, other well-known but seemingly mysterious phenomena begin to make sense, such as telepathy, phantom limbs and mind over matter effects. Sheldrake shows that telepathy depends on social bonds. He traces its evolution from the connections between members of animal groups such as flocks, schools and packs. In the modern world telepathy occurs most commonly just before telephone calls. He summarises startling new experimental evidence for the reality of telephone telepathy, and shows how readers can do tests for themselves.Drawing on his own experiments and extensive research, Sheldrake puts the overwhelming evidence for these unexplained abilities in the context of what he calls 'the extended mind', which he suggests is fundamental to our perception. Above all, the hypothesis of the extended mind provides a refreshingly new way of thinking about ourselves and our relationships with other people, with animals, and with the world around us.

    People that are trying to bolster their brain power for paranormal stuff sometimes will stare at others in concentration to see how long it will take for the person to look at them. The less time it takes the stronger the person. Whether that actually works I don't know. I've never done it or wanted to but have had people tell me about it.

    If you are sneaking up on someone it is best to not look directly at them or they will feel it and turn around. Now this is true. I've been enough of a prankster and snuck on many people that I have seen this.
