Even if he is unconscious his left seized a pen, and opened his cahier. Ainsi this day an event that has not yet occurred is described. In other words in his notebook is a future event. He actually does this by unconsciously picking up Shigeru's predictions through Telepathy.

Sumio's telepathy is first controlled by his mobile phone, dubbed Channel [es]. Channel [es] is the medium for Sumio's telepathy powers as the voices come from the phone itself. The mobile displays the names of all the people he can connect with and how well he can connect them in terms of the strength of how well he can connect with their thoughts. Despite this, there are two main requirements for Sumio to be able to connect with someone. The first would be that Sumio has to effectively have made contact with the person of whose mind he wants to read and also, they have to consider him an ally and be willing to let Sumio read their mind. If the person doesn't consider Sumio an ally, Channel [es] will state so and say they're out or range. This is proved when Sumio was able to connect with a Shadows thoughts after being converted into one himself.
