I have been writing about Hunter, the Border Collie I got eight weeks ago from Border Collies in Need. Hunter finds things, according to me, with one or all of the 3 Tele's:

  1. Telepathy is the ability to transmit words, emotions, or images to someone else's mind.
  2. Telekinesis is the ability to move objects through mind power.
  3. Teleportation refers to transporting yourself or your mind to a location miles away from you in fraction of seconds.
The night I brought him home and parked three houses away, he found my house. Thirteen days later I took him to Hidden Hills where my cousin lives and parked over a mile away. I don't walk, hike or do anything on foot in Hidden Hills. If you have a lot time on your hands then you can watch the whole 9-minutes. [1]

I made a 5-minute version where you can watch him find the house and run up the driveway into the garage to the back door. Why is that important?

He is off leash and everyone who visits enters the house through the garage. The thumbnail on the YouTube is the map of the route he took to get to their house.

Either video will convince you that he isn't "finding" by scent, nor am I giving him non-verbal clues.

We can also eliminate that his success at "finding" is not "an inevitable consequence of my mind searching for causal structure in reality, so that I can learn and adapt to my environment." [2]

Although a number of people want to give me, and of course Hunter, some extraordinary credit for finding where I worked, lived in the 70s and two Building and Safety Departments, I don't deserve anything. The only thing I did that allowed me to find out that dogs have the 3 Tele's was to park 3 houses away when I brought him home.

My girlfriend found my house when I brought her home for the first time; I wanted to see if he was as smart as her.

I never believed that Hunter was the only dog that could find locations using one or all of the 3 Tele's, after all there are 15 Pets Who Returned Home From Remarkable Distances and the Cat that walked 2,000 miles across Australia to get home after the owners relocated.

Hunter didn't just find his way home, he found where I worked in 1972, the Building Department in Van Nuys and the house that I built and then sold to Billy Griffin from the Miracles in 1975. Read about Hunter at OpEdNews. [3]

Researchers have documented that wolves and wild dogs have the ability to invent completely new routes [eliminating any explanation using scent] from point to point, once they are familiar with the terrain.

Hunter wasn't finding his way home because he was familiar with the "terrain," he was going to the locations stored in my brain.

I wanted to prove that Hunter and I weren't the only human and dog that could communicate telepathically but I was having trouble getting someone else to test their dog. The implications of one dog going in someone's mind or finding where they lived and worked in the past can be dismissed, but if there were two telepathic dogs, that could cause a severe case of cognitive dissonance.

What if dogs and animals are a whole lot smarter than we think? Then we would be forced to consider that just because we have indoor plumbing and don't lick our genitals, we aren't the most important intelligent species on the planet.

To dogs and cats, whole geographic areas as well as particular buildings may have distinctive scents. To get there, they could just follow that scent when it is upwind, and hold the bearing between clues.
