    A study published recently recorded adults’ brain activity during magnetic field manipulations, and the results suggest that the human brain can unconsciously respond to changes in Earth's magnetic fields. Such "magnetoreception" skills are common in migratory birds and sea turtles, which have a geomagnetic sense that supports a biological navigation system. The experiment detected a decrease in alpha-band brain activity in some participants that, say the researchers, were tuned to the magnetic field of the northern hemisphere, where the study was conducted.

    So you have never detected a magnetic field.

    That's why we wear tin foil hats at my home, to protect our brains from the magnetic fields aimed at us by the CIA.

    "Trump is preparing to sign an executive order meant to help deal with potential electromagnetic pulse events. Some lawmakers and scientists have long worried that a rogue nation with the technological know-how might attack the U.S. electric grid with an EMP.

    Trump signed the executive order on EMPs. It asks his admin to study the risks of an electromagnetic pulse and to identify critical infrastructure at greatest risk from such an attack."

    the pressure of my thread worked!

    My gosh you're an imbecile. EMP studies are needed to protect infrastructure. Not to mention CME's. It has nothing to do with detecting them with your minds.
