The Prediction of Ability
It may seem a little fanciful to speak of science as an instrument of extra-sensory perception - and yet this, in a way, is what it is. It enables us to know about things and events which we have not perceived directly. And it has its 'clairvoyant' as well as its 'precognitive' side. In the former case, what is predicted is that, if you look to see, you will observe that some specified event is occurring or has occurred or that some specified relationships hold. It is then only the looking to see which is in the future.
