September 6th the sixth sense: an evening about magnetism
Magnetism is our ‘sixth sense’. The ability to ‘feel’ that someone is behind us. That is because of the large amount of iron in our body, enough to make about 15 nails out of it. In non-human species, such as all migratory birds, this sense is much better developed. During the first evening expedition, we investigate man as a mineral, the taste of iron, what we can learn from birds, and how we can awaken the magnetism in ourselves.
