Another school of thought says that our "sixth sense" grows when we do spiritual practice.  >according to basic spiritual principles we increase our "spiritual level" and are able to perceive and experience the "subtle world" to greater degrees.[16]

>abilities are by-products of spiritual awakening and the realization of divine consciousness. Integral to spiritual and mind expansion is breathwork and meditation. By expanding lung capacity and learning to use the lungs as a 'bellows' to direct qi (Chinese: qì, meaning "air") around the body and open the subtle energy channels we also unnaturally expand the mind and refine consciousness. This is how these seemingly miraculous powers develop, though they are not truly miraculous. They are considered to be latent abilities that everyone possesses but need 'waking up.'

>distractions from the true path of Enlightenment and can lead to the practitioner falling off the true path. The re-discovery of these energetic abilities relies on the activation of the 'Dan Tien' (Chinese: 丹田 dān tián, meaning "energy gate") that is the central energy reservoir just below the navel. When the practitioner learns to 'turn' it and move it as if it were a fifth limb then qi can begin to be pushed around the body. The Dan Tien is strong as a baby but quickly slows to a crawl as one ages.  >learning to activate the Dan Tien once again. This may also explain why such abilities are a bit stronger as a child and quickly disappear as one ages but can be awakened again at any time by the proper practice of arts such as neigong and qigong to expand the mindstream and spirit. There are many abilities that can be developed in this way — telepathy, prediction, astral travel, pyrokinesis, telekinesis, levitation and energetic healing.

Cyberpunk author Neal Stephenson wrote in one of his books - - that the only real sign of intelligence was the ability to detect subtlety. 
If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.
