Ah, but how many dowsers (now we have got into this complex discussion) ask the question, is the shape the cat detects as good to lie down in the same shape as a Hartmann grid as we understand it, if it is the same shape is it something else that happens to coincide with Hartmann patterns but is different in some way; or if it is not the same shape but merely similar, is there any relationship at all to Hartmann patterns ?Olivier wrote: You have probably realised - maybe not - that cats very frequently lie down over waterveins and Hartmann's crossings.
And I am pretty sure that cats do not believe in the existence of such lines.
For these questions to make sense, we have to agree that "Hartmann pattern" involves the unknown phenomenon that normally causes dowsers to get a "yes" when they ask if this grid is a Hartmann grid - i.e. not something else that coincidentally creates the same dowsable "energy shape".
Supposing for the moment that yes, cats do lie down in Hartmann patterns by interacting with the same unknown phenomenon that dowsers agree creates Hartmann patterns (and I get a "yes" for that proposition), they are unlikely to have a conscious belief in such a thing and likely to be acting according to instinct, or unconscious prompting. A human being is operating in this mode when "irrationally" rejecting food which is in fact unsuitable for them. A belief in the food being unsuitable isn't required. However, cats may be doing it for the benefit of some side-effect of the original cause, such as the unconscious reactions of people exposed to it. In animal healing, I find animals commonly become ill because of their owners being stressed.
The more we discuss it, the more options pop up !
