Humans likely tap into a magical sense that honeybees, sea turtles and migratory birds use to travel long distances.
Magnetoreception is the magnetic compass aligned with the Earth’s magnetic fields.
Testing using the protein from a human retina proved that we’re able to detect magnetic fields, but while it serves as a magnet sensor, it’s unclear if we actually use it as a compass.
We do know that when there are disruptions in the Earth’s magnetic fields, people report sleep problems, mental confusion, a lack of energy or feeling on edge.
When the fields are stable and solar activity increases, we report positive feelings, creativity and inspiration, likely due to a coupling between the human brain, heart rhythms and the nervous system.
Extreme solar activity has been linked to some of humanity’s greatest creations of art and our most tragic events. Uh oh...
