5.0 out of 5 stars Dogs that know when their owners are coming home, 27 Jun. 2009
This review is from: Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home: And Other Unexplained Powers of Animals (Paperback)
An alternative scientific view point which validates the possibility that higher mammals (including humans) possess senses currently not recognized by conventional science.

Sheldrake explains that animals can tap into a collective memory almost like a telephone network through "Morphic fields". If a member of a species in one part of the world learns something new i.e. a task - the evidence suggests that this new wisdom will be shared in a kind of collective consciousness so all other members of the same species around the globe would be able to use this new found knowledge and perform tasks much quicker and easier than they would have done prior to the initial achievement.

Whether you believe the proposed theory or not, this book is at times emotive, well written, well researched and would appeal to anyone who has ever had a close bond with a dog, cat, horse or even a person. It helps explain beyond mechanistic biology how we sometimes feel a telepathic connection with other people or animals and continues to suggest that animals are more in tune with this ability than humans.

A fantastic read.
