Is your pet psychic? Biologist Rupert Sheldrake says that living things have morphogenic fields- invisible vibrations that surround and give shape to life forms, and affect their behaviour. This telepathic interconnection extends across the barriers between species and may even increase the intelligence of animals as a result of contact with their human masters and companions. Pets have often been known to mimic human behaviour and can sometimes display remarkably intelligent actions. For example they frequently learn to cope with the door fasteners of new refrigerators so that they can help themselves to food, within minutes of the refrigerator's installation.
