owl as a symbol of wisdom and clairvoyance

Clairvoyance is an ability to know about things or events that will occur in the future.

According to psychologists from Yale, human beings first see something happen, then think about seeing it, but sometimes they believe they had the thought first. This, they say, is why some people think they have clairvoyance.[1][2][3]
