What is it? Great question! According to researchers it’s the sensation of a presence that appears to help people in extreme situations, even when they are alone. This feeling has been reported by mountaineers, explorers, and sailors alike. In today's episode we discuss several examples of the Third Man Factor. We examine Ernest Shackleton's experience during his Antarctic expedition in 1915. After his ship became trapped in ice, Shackleton and his crew were forced to abandon it and make their way across the ice. Shackleton reported feeling the presence of a fourth person in their group who helped them make it to safety. We also delve into Charles Lindbergh's experience during his solo flight across the Atlantic in 1927. Lindbergh reported feeling the presence of a co-pilot who helped him navigate through a dangerous storm. We discuss several other examples as well as possible scientific explanations for this phenomenon, such as the brain's response to extreme stress and the effects of isolation. Overall, this episode offers a fascinating insight into the Third Man Factor and the experiences of those who have reported it. Including one of your very own podcast hosts! Don’t miss it!
