@Grampy-Bobby has quite recently been proclaiming some level of extra-sensory perception with "Kindred Spirits" in Thread 167657, perhaps he will engage you with his experiences.

"Types of Kindred Spirits Kindred spirits come in all forms. A co-worker who hates the company as much as you do, a sibling who shares your parental frustrations or a neighbor who boycotts the same block party as you all count as kindred spirits. In an informal way, this term has come to mean someone you feel a connection with, or someone who understands you. There are kindred spirits who seem to share all of your goals, ambitions and thought processes and there are those who share with you only one unique quality. Someone who has a rare illness, for example, may find a kindred spirit in someone who has little in common with them except for a diagnosis.
Word Origins: "The words "kindred" and "spirit" both arose from the 13th century. Kindred evolved from the Old English word kinraden, which itself came from the word raeden, meaning to "condition" or "rule." Spirit has its roots in the Old French word, "espirit." The word kindred generally refers to family or relatives, while spirit has many meanings, including the original version of the word, espirit, meaning "soul, courage, vigor and breath." The term "kindred spirit" itself has an unclear history in terms of its first usage." http://kuriakon00.tripod.com/soulmate/kindred_spirits.html
"Observations: In recent months it's become increasingly apparent to me that "Kindred Spirits" may actually simultaneously send, receive and process impromptu/spontaneous Kindred Spirit Memos at odd hours of the day and night. These invisible yet palpable communications seem to suggest that a virtual conversation is taking place before the fact [especially when they're subsequently followed by an email or phone call which validates the date and time when they occurred with online and/or offline loved ones and trusted friends].
