Good lord, the science minister? If he has a sixth sense to predict the future, why doesn’t he just pick tomorrow’s lottery numbers and retire?
Of course, we do have a sense “linked to the way humans have evolved” that allows us to predict the future. It’s called the human brain, and it works pretty well most of the time. For instance, it allows me to predict when it’s likely to get dark, when the sun is likely to come up, when rush hour is likely to be ... it even allowed me to predict who the next president was likely to be.
I somehow don’t think he’s quite talking about that ability; although admittedly it isn’t one that we fully understand we at least know how to go about understanding it.
