Percy Bysshe Shelley, in the concluding paragraph of his A Defence of Poetry, emphasized the importance of what amounts to, in effect, a “Sixth” human sense. Since migratory birds exhibit such “extra” sensory perception, in their annual north-south flights, according to a magnetic-field orientation, we must acknowledge that electromagnetic radiation plays an important role in our universe. Might this not be recognized as man’s “sixth sense”?
After all, LaRouche writes, the migratory birds do use cosmic radiation as an important category of communication. Why not we? Or, to put it another way: Why does human behavior react to certain ranges of cosmic radiation, as if such experience performed a function supplementing that of ordinary sense-perception? And: Why do most people today, nonetheless, not yet recognize this action itself as expressing a mode of individual sense-perception?
From there, LaRouche addresses the question of human creativity, that unique quality which characterizes “man in the image of the Creator,” the principle established in Genesis 1: “not religion, but fact.”

The Obama Administration is withdrawing the once-a-year death-counseling Medicare regulation, that it attempted to sneak in by fiat, after a similar provision known as Section 1233, had been rejected by Congress. But the fight against President Obama’s “useless eaters” policy is far from over, and will not be concluded until Obama himself is removed from office.

The 50 states and 90,000 other non-Federal government entities of the United States are now unable to maintain any pretense of functioning and paying up on financial claims, and are experiencing, instead, a process of disintegration of horrific proportions. Not just a financial crisis, but a physical-economic collapse—the lawful result of more than 40 years of a post-industrial decline, and the looting of living standards by the imperial monetarist system.
