I just started reading The Intention Experiment by Lynne McTaggart. This is an amazing book. Suggested by more than one of you, it's clear that you are way ahead of me on this topic. Or is it that we are drawn to each other based on intention? Anyway...
I've already mentioned in an earlier post that I have one foot in science and one in spirit. This has always been the way for me. And this book brings science, especially quantum physics, and spirit together seamlessly. I've just started the book, but wanted to share one amazing experiment:
"Animals themselves proved capable of acts of effective intention. In one ingenious study by Rene' Peoc'h of the Foundation ODIER in Nantes, France, a robotic "mother hen," constructed from a movable random-event generator, was "imprinted" on a group of baby chicks soon after birth. The robot was placed outside the chicks' cage, where it moved around freely, as its path was tracked and recorded. Eventually, it was clear that the robot was moving toward the chicks two and a half times more often than it would ordinarily; the "inferred intention" of the chicks - their desire to be close to their mother - appeared to affect the robot, drawing it closer to the cage. Over eighty similar studies, in which a lighted candle was placed on a movable REG, baby chicks kept in the dark, finding the light comforting, managed to influence the robot to spend more time than normal in the vicinity of their cages."
This is fascinating! This means animals may have an ability to affect their world. If the chicks tiny brains can do this, can you imagine what ours can do? Luckily we have scientists all over the world working on consciousness and intention.
We know through quantum physics that at the subatomic level all matter is made of the same "stuff", from rocks to humans. What's more, they've discovered that subatomic matter appears to be involved in a continual exchange of information, causing it to change and refine.
So if animals can manipulate their world through intention, and they now think all things are connected - um, here's a thought - should we be eating them?
