Animal's Magnetic Sense
by: Junji Takano
Humans have five senses. These are the senses of hearing, sight,
smell, touch, and taste. However, all these five senses may not be
enough to live, learn, and educate the world.
How about animals? Many scientists believe that most animals can
detect the north and south magnetic orientation to help them
navigate. Well, how many senses do animals have? They may have more
senses compared to us.
Notice the two photos above where the cattle are facing the same
north direction when they are at rest. If you observe large stock
farms, ranches, and pastured areas via satellite photos, you will
notice that animals at rest are facing north.
According to most gardeners, even trees have "magnetic sense".
North and south direction can be identified by observing the growth
rings of the tree. The tree rings are more noticeable on the side
facing the equator, and so the other side with wider spacing between
individual rings faces north if you are south of the equator, and
Sea turtles, eels, and other fishes have magnetic sense. How
about migratory birds? They can come back where they were born. Yes,
we believe that all living things are given such senses. But there
is one more thing worth mentioning aside from magnetism. That is
"spirit". Science does not recognize spirit, although most
scientists believe its existence.
We humans do not see or cannot see the spiritual world in normal
state. However, do you believe that most animals can see such
spiritual world if they want to?
Why do most animals like cattle are facing north when they are at
rest? Scientists believe that it's the magnetic sense. How about
dogs and foxes howling and barking more often during the night of
full moon? I can tell you that all of them including human beings
are guided by spirits. Yes, groups of spirits move around during
The dog's sense of smell is not just the smell alone. It also has
spiritual connection. Most animals can see the world of spirits.
That's how they can move, too.
Scientists try to prove medical technologies by utilizing
animals. Don't you know that animals won't get the same illnesses
Forty-six years ago, a Japanese veterinary surgeon travels to
poultry sites with me, and told me that most chickens he saw were
affected by arthritis. We argued and I told him that chicken don't
suffer from it, whereas it is the people who made the chicken suffer
from arthritis-like illness.
We traveled further together, and at a watermelon farm, we rested
and ate fresh watermelon offered by the farmer. The watermelon was
sweet but it was full of big seeds in it. The veterinarian told me
that most watermelons he ate have no seeds at all, and that he can
send me a variety of seedless watermelon seeds. I said, "Where did
you get that seeds from seedless watermelon?" We both laughed.
By analyzing the natural and man-made things, and primitive and
modern way of living, you can understand that we are facing to the
