THE WYSONG e-HEALTH LETTER
~Thoughts for Thinking People~
W.) Okay all you smarty-pants, who are convinced
I went off the deep end when I suggested any credibility
for pet psychics, listen
Let's set aside for the moment the fact that you believe in all kinds
of things you do not even begin to understand and only can know indirectly.
unseen forces of gravity and magnetism are but two familiar examples. Everyone
believes in these forces, sees them at work everyday but nobody
has ever seen or felt the actual forces or has a clue as to their
infinity? We believe in that but can't even begin to comprehend
it. Or how about the fact that all of matter is more than 99.9999999+%
empty space, not the touchy-feely "reality" you think it is? Or
what about the fact that all of this perceived physical world which
materialists believe to be the sum total of truth must have had
an ultimate origin,
yet we have no idea what that was?
get me wrong; I don't have it all figured out either. But
I do know that there is lots of figuring left to be done. Materialists,
on the other hand, swagger around as if they have all the answers. They
pick and choose the phantoms they wish to believe in. Yet,
they have the hubris to ridicule any thinking outside their box
afford explanations, regardless of the merit of the documentation.Here's
cog in the materialistic wheel.
Rupert Sheldrake is the author of the seminal concept of morphic
resonance. It is a theory designed to explain idiosyncrasies in
biology. To some, his thinking is as revolutionary as Darwin's.
In fact, it explains some of the conundrums of evolutionary theory. But
that's another topic (see my book, The Creation-Evolution Controversy).
research has also led him to examine the phenomenon of foreknowledge
psi-like phenomena in animals. To take just the matter
of dogs knowing when their owners will come home, he has carefully
analyzed 585 reports.
Peter Edwards returns to his farm in Essex, his Irish Setters
are at the
gate to greet him. He works irregular hours and usually
does not let even his wife know when he is returning. But
the dogs know.
there is the matter of the Coast Guard Buoy tender stationed
20 miles away from
home. Jackson, the family dog, always anticipated
the return of the kids on the bus, but Teresa, the mother took little
note. When Jackson would get excited, wanted out, go to the end of the
sidewalk and wait for her husband who just it so happens got in port
some 20 miles away, she paid attention. His schedule was not at
all regular. She would even primp and prepare a meal timed
with Jackson's behavior.
accounts come from others who have irregular schedules such as
drivers, military personnel, midwives and airline workers. Distance
is not a factor, nor is sound, wind direction, time spent away,
carefully tracking the simultaneous actions of the animal and those
of the owner,
the trigger was found to be when the person DECIDED to
come home. It was the thought-action that the bonded animal perceived
and responded to. If an owner changes his/her mind, the pet
settles back into its pre-alerted demeanor.
The "Skeptical Inquirer," the
publication that scientifically examines claims of the paranormal,
put Sheldrake's data to the test and
came up with the same conclusions.
Pay attention to your own pets and you will likely see similar behavior
is yet more powerful evidence that there is more to things than
meets the eye. We,
and the creatures around us, are more than the summation of our
atoms or mere genetically programmed machines. Understanding
this is the beginning of wisdom and the key to open-minded inquiry.
From there we can be led closer to truth, the goal of any thinking
and the prerequisite to a healthy mind, body and that something
of health to you and yours from all of us here at Wysong.
