An attempt of explaining the phenomenon of Baba Vanga
I feel that my account has become more personal than scientific. But it could not be otherwise. I am very sorry for all the time we have missed – both I and Bulgarian science as a whole. That Baba Vanga is a phenomenon, there is no doubt. A true miracle in the life of Bulgarian society. She is and will remain an unsolved puzzle for medicine, philosophy, religion and sociology.
“The vision” of the blind Baba Vanga is a big challenge to science, especially having in mind that she could see things that ordinary people with normal sight could not. A serious scientific approach to her gift could have given us the chance to find out the truth and cast light on countless blind spots in the theory of cognition. Unfortunately, this chance was lightly missed.
As early as in ancient times, different teachings have tried to discover the key to the inner vision of prophets. Nowadays, we are rediscovering authors and literature studying the mechanism of this inner gift of man to see beyond the visible and the understandable, to go beyond the barrier of time using the power of thought and the hidden senses. Both ancient occult literature and most recent research admit that it is possible for information to be acquired not only through the 5 senses, but also by means of other, alternative receptors.
