Re: Have you hired a pet psychic or used pet tarot cards?

A true psychic, for example, would be able to tell me these things over the internet and get all of them correct:
- What is my current feline's name?
- What did my current feline eat in the morning on June 6, 2001?
- What was the name of the family feline that disappeared?
- What was the name of my parent's feline, most recently deceased?
- How was that feline's name spelled and why?
And what would the psyhic say? Oh, some mumbo jumbo about how their mental powers only work when they are in contact with you and/or the pet. Etc.
Moreover, consider the following: We know that the human mind is has some direct relations to the electrical biological circuitry of our brains. We don't understand the essence of the connection -
- (ie, how is it that electricity firing through biological circuits appears to produce an independent consciousness of reflecting on its own existence) -
- but at the very least we understand there are a number of direct relations between the physical entity and the seeming non-physical 'mind'.
A pet's mind, to whatever extent the smaller, less capable, and differently structured brain produces a 'mind' entity, would be utterly alien. I dare venture to say that almost all of what we see in our pets ('oh, booboo is feeling X right now') is pure anthropomorphism.
The notion that a human mind could interface with an animal mind and detect actual thoughts is absurd.
And actual scenes? Does it occur to any believers that the structure of the animal eye and mind would produce an image completely incomprehensible? Wavelengths you don't perceive? A completely different definition and structure of object?
Chance is any perceived image would be as incomprehensible as the lightshow in your head if you downed a quart of LSD and plugged your head into an electrical socket.
