I have the odd problem of waking up not only a few seconds before my electrical alarm clock goes off, but also I have a tendency of getting up a second before the clock turns 3:33am. This is a non-mechanical clock, it makes no sound when changing digital numbers… How would any classical conditioning allow for a biological clock to be so precise, WITHOUT a stimulus (like that trigger from a mechanical clock) My clock is always set ahead too, different times, so i’m never late… This would suggest the issue is more to do with the NUMBERS?
This happens quite frequently.
