You are coming upon an old conundrum. Does every particle "know" about every other particle or not? How does a rotating reference frame know it is rotating? The side that you are taking will be disproven if gravity waves are found. That is a vast oversimplification but I think the question is still open. I am willing to be corrected.
Oh! How long have you been dead? Can you tell me what it feels like? Did you meet Bog?
FWIW, electro sensitivity can be trained, as can the ability to resist electrocution (to a point anyway). During the bombings in London during the Second World War there was little in the way of material support for first responders. Those concerned with power had no "meters", not even simple probes. They learned to feel live wires and assess voltages with nothing but the skin and hair on their hands.
(Sardonic voice). That is not very scientific. That it has never been observed does not mean it has never happened.(/Sardonic voice) Sorry - couldn't resist.
The judge may just be a little more pragmatic than us idealists. You cannot force mental treatment on someone who is not a threat and one way or another she is ill and under their social contract entitled to assistance. She now gets it. She can get treatment any time she wants. Likely to be expensive though.
I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
