Cliff Pickover:

I tend to be skeptical about the paranormal. However, I do feel that there are facets of the universe we can never understand, just as a monkey can never understand calculus, black holes, symbolic logic, and poetry. There are thoughts we can never think, visions we can only glimpse. It is at this filmy, veiled interface between human reality and a reality beyond that we may find the numinous, which some may liken to God.

I wonder if the levels different people sense or see are different and if some people see strong in certain areas ie music ie math etc.

Clearly Dr. Pickover has never met a Hypermonkey. They understand all that stuff and more!
