Can a Horse feel Guilt ?

Well, I believe that all animals have Souls and that non-human animals also have intelligence, and in fact, some have more intelligence than some human beings.  I also believe that some non-human animals can also feel emotions and feelings – emotions being feelings that are expressed physically.

If you are at all interested or drawn to communicating with animals, please pursue that interest, as the World would benefit, I think, from Homo sapiens or human beings genuinely connecting with their animal companions and the animal world at large.

There are plenty of resources for this, excellent books, and Animal Communicators, that run courses in communicating with animals, and / or who will connect with your special Animal friend as a service they run, and give you messages from them, or relay questions from your animal companions.

A load of “bunkum”, some of you say?  “That’s strange” or “I don’t understand that” others may decry.  Well, consider this – communication is universal.  The spoken language had to start somewhere.  It is made up.  Communication also exists as mental images and concepts which are on the “air-waves” or which are conveyed by the intention of the sender, as frequencies of energy which an open and devoted receiver can pick up.

I have personally experienced it myself.  It’s called telepathy.  Once a baby human being telepathically spoke to me, and if Homo sapiens can pick up telepathic messages from other human beings, why can’t they pick up telepathic messages from non human beings?   Please visit the page below to explore further.

Talk to the Animals

Now, to answer the Question that is the Title of this Post,
the answer is YES.

The Unhappy Racehorse

Animals are not lesser beings.  They may serve a purpose to some human beings, but should be treated with respect, as David Attenborough says.  We use tools, don’t we, like knives & forks, and computers, but don’t say they are lesser things than us.

In my “books” or viewpoint,  ALL LIFE  is sacred in terms of, yes, some of us may eat animals, and I have heard that some animals are aware of this purpose or relationship and accept it, but let’s not go over-board and take more than we need, or out-rightly abuse various animal species as just commodities, for our own pleasure or profit.   Farming animals uses an enormous amount of land that could be used to grow & harvest plants for human consumption.

Remember the following, that we all came / come from the “primoridal soup” or from the hot ocean vents, and the predecessors/ancestors of Homo sapiens and other Animals are the same – bacteria !!  This is according to scientists, like Professor Brian Cox, and the point is that just because we human beings CAN “conquer” or farm and trap non-human animals, CAN is not a good reason for actually doing so – to the extent that we are being cruel to animals and degrading our Earth.

We CAN eat with our fingers but in the so-called civilized countries, we DON’T.  It’s our CHOICE what we do with this beautiful and fascinating World that we live in.

Let’s have Fun – go in the Polls !

Okay, it’s time to slow down a bit and have some fun or entertainment by having your say in one of the “Fascinating Animals” and / or “Our Lovely World” Polls.

It’s easy – just click on the Titles above or on the Links below to join in, and to view the Results.

I’ll even place a Poll in this Post.  Don’t be lethargic or stick-in-the-mud, your say is “annonymous” and the results could be quite interesting.

NOW, for this Post’s Poll !

In the Beginning was ……  no, you CAN’T choose Aliens or God or Nothing or the Void, because the Poll is actually about either Light or Sound

I once attended an Astrology course and had an argument with the teacher about whether Light or Sound was in the VERY beginning, the first thing emanating from the “Void”.  You may choose to say there was both Light and Sound at the same time, but it will be interesting to see how many choose only “Light” and how many choose only “Sound.”

 

This Post  about what physicist Professor Brian Cox says about “what makes the universe up or down” may help you answer.

By the way, the reason for my answer can be found by clicking  HERE.

ENJOY, if you do, and share with your friends.

Polite discussion about this Poll is invited.  You will need a WordPress Username to comment (which is a requirement to try to stop spammers from posting silly stuff on this Blog).

Cladograms & Evolution – We are all related

Brontosaurus

Phylogenetics orPhylogenetic systematics is a discipline and a field of biology that aims to identify and understand the evolutionary relationships among the many different kinds of life forms on earth, both living (extant) and dead (extinct)Cladistics uses an understanding of phylogenetics to look at the “Tree of Life” and uses a type of diagram called a Cladogram to represent branched “evolutionary relationships” or phylogenies.

Phylogenies are lists or diagrams that show the evolutionary paths taken by populations of organisms through many generations and over long periods of time.

Nomenclature is the devising or choosing of names for things, especially within a branch of science. Systematics or Taxonomy is the branch of biology that deals with classification and nomenclature of organisms or life forms.  A binomial (or two word) nomenclature is used to label and identify known species, using a Genus name and a Species name.  Please see    this   post here for in depth information about TAXONOMY.
