Background

Dr Shafica Karagulla, born in the Lebanon but whose research took her to the USA and the UK,  was a neuro-psychiatrist who spent eight years researching ordinary people who appeared to have extraordinary abilities.  She started off being a skeptic as most scientists are [including me] but over time the evidence seemed overwhelming and she set up a research project to find out more.  What brought her into the area was a book about Edgar Cayce, what kept her going was an open mind and an insatiable curiosity.  Where she is remarkable is that she had no experiences of her own to confirm her eventual conclusions,  but like all the very best scientists forgot her own life and concentrated on the observations and evidence.  Her research subjects were carefully chosen.  She rejected all those who claimed they had these abilities but instead by a laborious process of enquiry and referral managed to find those who carried on normal professions and who never talked about their abilities but just used them. 

Mike had numerous abilities - this is just a sample.  Both of these events are achieved via inter composer communication.  In the first case he is communicating with whoever wrapped the presents, in the second case probably with either Mrs S or Mr S.  It seems most probable that it was Mr S because he is seeing Mrs S fall and as such is 'seeing' through the perceptions of Mr S

The prophecy - simulation - would not have been that difficult for his composer

A description of the experience

Breakthrough to Creativity – Dr Shafica Karagulla

One Christmas morning when he was six, as the members of the family assembled to open presents, he realized that he knew what was in each package under the Christmas tree. He proceeded to tell his sisters and other members of the family what was in each package before a single box had been opened. His mother decided he must have sneaked in and opened all the packages during the night. He was punished for opening presents and especially other people's presents before Christmas morning. He was too young to understand what had really happened, and was puzzled and bewildered that he had been punished.

As Mike grew a little older he began to discuss such things with other children. He realized for the first time that other people could not look into closed boxes and see what was there without opening the box. …….

One day when he was about fourteen years old he and his sister were sitting in the living room when he suddenly jumped from his seat and reached out, bending down to the floor as if to catch someone who was falling.

As he did so he said to his sister, "Mrs. S. just fell. I saw her fall on the floor in her house. She has broken her hip on the left side. They will take her to St. Mary's Hospital and she will be in room 218."

Mike was fully conscious, and the incident had been so vivid he was quite sure it was true. A few minutes later his father came home and his sister related the episode. His father felt this was rather foolish, and it was an opportune time to teach Mike a lesson. He told Mike he had seen Mrs. S., the family friend, that morning, and she was in fine condition. He suggested they take a walk to St. Mary's Hospital, and he would prove to Mike all this was not true. They went into the hospital and the father asked at the desk who was in room 218. Mrs. S. was not there, but at that point Mr. S. came in from the corridor. He said his wife had fallen and was in serious condition and they had just wheeled her into room 218.

It turned out she did have a broken left hip.
