Many in the resistance possessed exceptional skills; they could anticipate events before they occurred. Years of experience meant a seasoned nurse could predict a patient’s bad day with a glance. Firefighters and military personnel seemed to possess an uncanny sense of when to retreat and take cover. It was almost a premonition - avoiding the unpleasant before its onset, a sensation highlighted when algorithms interviewed these individuals post-disaster. They could not rationalize their knowledge, only that a specific course of action felt necessary before a catastrophe occurred.
This intuition frustrated the machines; they wanted to be able to do the same. However, humans were different; we didn’t consciously register the clamminess of a patient’s skin or a slight shift in dew point on a fire ground. We relegated these complex perceptual tasks to our subconscious, focusing our conscious efforts on formulating a response: fetch the crash cart, or it’s time to evacuate.

Hi! Subconsciously you already know this, but let's make it obvious. Hopefully this article was helpful. You might also find yourself following a link to Amazon to learn more about parts or equipment. If you end up placing an order, I make a couple of dollarydoos. We aren't talking a rapper lifestyle of supercars and yachts, but it does help pay for the stuff you see here. So to everyone that supports this place - thank you.
