Second Sight

.

The power of seeing things invisible to others; the power of foreseeing future events by means of shadows thrown before them. Many Highlanders claim this power, which the ancient Gaels called shadow-sight (taischitaraugh).

Nor less availed his optic sleight,

And Scottish gift of second sight.”


Trumbull.
