It is just possible that the apparent ability of Estrildid finches
to instinctively know what non-medicinal dietary foods to eat and what non-nutritional medicinal items in their environment
to consume if they are in pain, is identical to what is known in paranormal literature as DOWSING.
Biologists have in fact observed that some animals can dowse i.e. detect
water even when there is no visible trace of it in their environment.
In all these instances, animals may be in great pain and the urge to
survive somehow triggers some mechanism that allows them to detect a vital source of water, or adequate food or adequate medicine
in their environment, even though there is no visible trace of water or they have never encountered the food or medicinal
items before !!
It is also just possible that all living things possess this psi ability
but in the case of most human beings, the logical brain interferes with this ability and filters it out which is why few of
us can successfully dowse for water and even fewer of us if any are able to cure ourselves of illness as animals are observed
Dowsing as an animal psi ability that evolved in animals to favor their
immediate survival is readily understandable. But what does sound strange is that some human beings are known to dowse with
repeated success for items that have nothing to do with their immediate survival. They do not dowse for water or medicinal
plants but for oil as they do in Texas or precious stones or metals as Uri Geller does.
