Unexplained Powers of Animals
by Rupert Sheldrake
In the late 1980s and early 1990s I explored a variety of experimental approaches for the investigation of unexplained phenomena that might help to enlarge our scientific view of the world, summarised in my book Seven Experiments That Could Change the World: A Do-It-Yourself Guide to Revolutionary Science (1994).
One of the seven experiments concerned unexplained abilities of animals, and I published a series of papers on the unexplained powers of animals,
see Papers on animals .
I summarised much of this research in my book Dogs That Know When Their Owners Are Coming Home, And Other Unexplained Powers of Animals (1999).
My research with Aimée Morgana into the telepathic powers of her African Grey Parrot, Nkisi, led to the celebrated debate at the London RSA with Prof Lewis Wolpert, which is featured on this website
The Telepathy Debate
More information is available on Nkisi, including a tape of one of his conversations with Aimée in
The Nkisi project
