Abstract

The question trying to be pursued here is whether or not the sixth sense, known as gut feelings, exists. The hypothesis to this is that the sixth sense does indeed exist, and is evident through the hippocampus sending signals to sensory neurons. To determine if this is correct, the question of where gut instincts derive from must be answered. A survey was conducted asking, “Where do gut instincts come from?" The denouement was gut instincts come from the conscious mind. Research was piloted to determine which parts of the brain process with the conscious mind. Later research conveyed the hippocampus is at control of the conscious long term memory. Through the explicit mind, memories are transferred through the hippocampus to neurotransmitters and sensory neurons connecting to the gastrointestinal, producing the gut feeling. It's evident that if gut instincts were to exist, they would exist through those whose neurons are proactive compared to one who has neurodegeneration. Those who experience neurodegeneration are of older age groups. A survey asking “How often do you get gut instincts” with the options of answer being “very often, sometimes, rarely, and never,” was administered to two different age groups. One to a younger age group ranging from the ages 18-30 and another group ranging from 78-90. The younger age group had a substantial vote for getting gut instincts more often than the elderly who hardly even experienced them. This study suggests that the sixth sense is in existence.
