  • The answer provided there is 'foreboding', which implies foresight and foreboding is hardly unfounded.

  • You need to edit your question to explain "foreboding is hardly unfounded". Foreboding can simply be an apparently irrational sense of unease. Why does foreboding require foresight?

    The question is a duplicate. Note the body question is a SWR for 'I walked into the bar and felt ______. I knew something terrible was about to happen, but I couldn't place my finger on what, or why.' 'Foreboding' is usually defined without a 'fair reason' caveat. Mar 17, 2022 at 19:12
