Is Your Dog Telepathic? This Cambridge Scientist Thinks So

Article originally written by and published at

If you’re a dog owner, you probably already believe that your dog and you have some sort of telepathic connection, and you’ve had some experiences which strengthen that belief.

Below is a video that was done by Rupert Sheldrake, a biologist and author of 10 books and more than 80 scientific papers. He studied natural sciences at Cambridge and philosophy and history of science at Harvard, where he was a Frank Knox Fellow.

He took a PhD in biochemistry at Cambridge and was a Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge, where he was Director of Studies in biochemistry and cell biology. He was also a Research Fellow of the Royal Society. From 1974 to 1978 he was Principal Plant Physiologist at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) in Hyderabad, India, where he worked on the physiology of tropical legume crops, and remained Consultant Physiologist until 1985.

He is one of many world class scholars who have dived into the realm of parapsychological (PSI) phenomenon.

Rupert has examined animal telepathy in depth; his research on telepathy in animals is summarized in his book, Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home, and published in detail in a series of papers that you can access HERE.



Unexplained phenomena that have been been observed, examined, and repeated by scientists from all around the globe still receive harsh criticism from the mainstream scientific community. Most modern day mainstream science operates under the assumption that matter is the only reality. Today, this notion is known as “scientific materialism.” Fortunately, this view is disappearing at a fast rate, given the fact that quantum physics has shown us that what we perceive as our physical material world is not really physical at all.telepathic-animals

When it comes to phenomena grouped under the label of “parapsychological phenomenon,” there is no shortage of documented cases where telepathy, remote viewing, psychokinesis, and more have been observed at the highest level of government.

Here is what the scientific method states:

  • We see something unexplained
  • We develop an explanation (hypothesis)
  • We test the explanation with an experiment that gives us facts
  • We evaluate the facts, and if they support the explanation, we have a theory. If they don’t, we have to go back to step 2 and change our explanation as well as repeat the process.

The issue with phenomena like telepathy is that we have no hypothesis, no explanation, and no supporting evidence to validate their existence. Despite the fact that these phenomena are real and have been observed/repeated in various laboratories all around the world, our inability to explain them within the confines of a materialistic worldview has placed some of these occurrences into the realm of “pseudoscience,” which is absolutely absurd.

123553318-talk-to-your-dog-632x475Some materialistically inclined scientists and philosophers refuse to acknowledge these phenomena because they are not consistent with their exclusive conception of the world.

Rejection of post-materialist investigation of nature or refusal to publish strong science findings supporting a post-materialist framework are antithetical to the true spirit of scientific inquiry, which is that empirical data must always be adequately dealt with.

Data which do not fit favored theories and beliefs cannot be dismissed as priori. Such dismissal is the realm of ideology, not science.”  Dr. Gary Schwartz (source)

I elaborate more on why it is absurd, and provide more examples in this article if you are interested:
