That is how he sees Six while no one else can. Six had a mission to get security codes to the Cylons, but her fondness for Baltar made her save him. Has anyone else got any other ideas?
I tried floating that boat a while ago when they aired the original movie: that Baltar couldn't have survived that nuclear attack merely by a "duck and cover". When we see Baltar next on Caprica, he has a couple of scars, but that's it.
Since the brain scan didn't uncover a "chip" in his brain, you can believe that Baltar is:
b) seeing #6 as an "angel" of "god" as she claimed
d) somehow linked into the hive mind of the Cylons (oops, sorry, those were the Borg)
