This link is fascinating and shows that humans can sense the magnetic field even if they do not know that they have. We already know that a lot of animal navigation takes place in the hippocampus i.e. in the Subconscious.
Could this mean that there might be a correlation with the way that humans react to the magnetic field?
Does sensing the magnetic field help those who profess that they do have sense of direction?
I have been amazed that if you ask most people if they have sense of direction you get a binary result:
- Yes I do and use it all the time
- No I do not
I would expect a more nuanced answer
