Extra Sensory Perception

A short note – It appears that birds, or at least ‘some’ birds, can anticipate catastrophic weather and fly away to a safer location one day before, “US scientists say tracking data shows that five golden-winged warblers “evacuated” their nesting site one day before the April 2014 tornado outbreak”.

Ecologists guess that these birds may sense those extreme events with their keen, low frequency hearing.

My guess is that the birds sense a change in the earth’s electric/geomagnetic field and not a simple acoustic one.

Similar anticipations occurred on an island off Sri Lankar, where the tribal peoples sensed the Aceh tsunami of November 2014 and removed back to higher ground.

And then there are the anecdotes of animals anticipating earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other ‘catastrophic’ weather and geological effects days before.

This puzzles the scientists steeped in the lore of physical materiality in which the only force is gravity, along with an admission that there are electromagnetic fields, but that those fields are inconsequential in terms of G.

Those scientists are exemplars of the religious mind in operation, and not that of the scientific mind. They are no different to tribal witch doctors interpreting dissonant data in terms of the prevailing dogma, physical materialism, which is the outcome of the religious mind’s world view.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.

  1. Dear Sir,Ba
    Thank you for your exceptional work. About birds. Back in the late 1960s we had built a feedlot which held about 23,000 cattle owned by others–which required an account of the feed consumed in each pen–100 and 200 average head, in the Texas Panhandle. We discovered some days they did not eat all the feed and others they were balling for more.
    Quail reacted in much the same manner, some days the fed all day and others only in the morning and evening. The common factor was the change in the air pressure. The person who called for the amount of feed in each pin checked the air pressure before calling for the amount of feed. When the pressure was falling they ate and ate. When it reached a low they ate very little.

    I believe the Indians watched land turtles for similar signs, according to a friend who visited their camps when he was a child.

    Shortly after expanding the government’s actions caused us to go broke, and I move away.
