“Thou Shall Not Think Of Beast As Man.”
REALLY. Now maybe I’m just a dumb Irish girl, but I’d like to know, who is the idiot that proudly said this?
Maybe it’s the romance writer in me that makes me believe my dog has a soul with his own fate and karma to fulfill, while living his life here on Earth, or perhaps this belief comes from my Irish bloodline and the fact that I’ve been raised to believe in the leprechauns and faeries. That or I’m just a nut and happy in my craziness. What is it they say…ignorance is bliss? Whichever the case, I believe other animals of Earth deserve our respect and understanding.
Yes, I said OTHER animals.
I could never understand people who treat their dogs badly and then say STUPID things like, “It’s just a animal” as if the dog didn’t feel anything! I’m sorry, but if you look at life on this planet, be it a human or a dog or a dinosaur, WE ARE ALL ANIMALS. YES, HUMANS fall into the animal category!
WE ARE ALL ANIMALS OF EARTH. But I’ll tell you this…it is not just animals who have a consciousness…I’ll explain more on this later. First let’s talk about animals.
Now, some say the human animal is of the highest intelligence on earth…but again, I’m sorry, I have to disagree…Human’s are not and cannot be the most intelligent species. My first proof…look at this planet…an intelligent being would never do to the Earth what man has done.
Second point to support my theory - Native American Indians will tell you the dolphin speaks with “the breath of life” that the dolphin is the keeper of “the sacred breath”. Native Americans say the dolphins were given “the gift of the primordial tongue”. How did they know this?
American Indian’s say the Whale is the “Record Keeper” that he carries the history of the Mother Earth. But isn’t the whale like the dolphin - just a mammal? And if so, why give a these mammals such respect?
Maybe the Indian’s were just being romantic in their descriptions….but if that were the case then why would a psychoanalyst physician, who specializes in biophysics, neurophysiology, electronic, computer theory and neuroanatomy agree with them?
I’m talking about a man named Dr. John C. Lilly and his studies with cetaceans (dolphins, whales and such). On his sight at http://www.johnclilly.com/ you will see statements he made such as,
A dolphin named Peter was being taught to count to ten in English (that means the dolphins have their own language). The dolphin learned how to count and once he did they gave him a sequence of numbers like three through five and Peter would the give the next number; six. But the amazing thing is, in this statement Lilly says Peter then changed the rules (I assume he got bored with the game) and the next time they gave him three through five instead of telling Lilly six, Peter said “four, three, two, one...count backwards."
Peter had never been taught to do this…so if Peter is “just” a mammal without thought or self awareness…how did he do it?
Lilly said he’d participated in a conversation between two dolphins, but that it had drove him crazy because the dolphins had communicated too much information, and way too fast for the human mind to comprehend. Well, seeing that most Cetaceans brains are our size or larger and the fact that they’ve been around on this Earth for 25 million years and humans have only been here for what a
1/20th of that time….Who do you really think would be smarter? In my book the whale wins.
And for those of you who think Peter counting backwards could have been a mistake…how about a dolphin named Elvar who got impatient with a trainer and sounded the words "let's go, come on let's go!”
Elvar sounds like my hubby when we’re getting ready to go out for the night….rather human if you ask me…then again…maybe me hubby was just being an “animal” about the time.
So, does my dog have a life to live, karma to pay and a soul to grow from this life experience here on Earth? I say yes. Does my dog think? I say yes. Does my dog feel? I say yes and he gets scared and hurt feelings as well. My dog might even get depressed if he wasn’t so spoiled. Could my dog have obsessions about things like wooden floors or certain sounds? I say yes. And yes, he knows when he’s in trouble and like children, my dog tries working hubby against me in favor of what he (the dog) wants.
Tell me my dog can’t think or feel and I’ll tell you this…it has been tested and proven that if a victim is murdered in a house or office that has a house plant…and police bring in a file of suspects to walk past that house plant…that plant can identify the murderer, if the CSI unit had it connected to a machine that has been specially built to register the plants life field. THAT PLANT FEELS THE SAME FEAR IT FELT WHILE THE VICTIM WAS BEING MURDERED!
Tell me this can’t be…I’ll tell you it’s been done by American Scientist.
Tell me that’s crazy…then I guess American Indians went to a lot of trouble they didn’t need to go to when they’d talk about cutting down a tree while standing next to it, then they’d dance around that tree in a cutting ceremony, but at the last minute, they’d surprise the tree next to the tree they’d been dancing around and cut that one down…and they did this so the tree they took wouldn’t know she was about to be cut…they didn’t want to stress her out before her cutting. BUT WHAT DID THEY KNOW?
MORE THAN WE KNOW…THAT’S FOR SURE.
