Sometime ago, an African grey parrot was in the news because of his amazing ability to hold intelligent conversation in English. He is reported to have an impressive vocabulary of a little less than 1000 words. Intrigued by this amazing incident, the Spiritual Science Research Foundation (SSRF) conducted Spiritual research into various details of the parrot and his talking ability.
This research was conducted through the highly advanced extrasensory perception (ESP) ability or sixth sense of SSRF seekers. The following are some of the finds of the spiritual research conducted into this phenomenon.
As a rule, since the basic intelligence of birds is extremely limited (restricted to fulfilling its basic needs of hunger, sleep, sex, etc.), it is impossible for birds to achieve the feat of talking and acquiring an extensive vocabulary. The ability to speak in birds is because they are either affected or possessed by a ghost (demon, devil, negative energy, etc.) or because the bird is a devolved human being, that is, it was a human being in its past life.
A human being can be devolved to be born into a lower species either because of his own wish or if he has excess of demerits or is cursed by a spiritually evolved person. In fact, Spiritual research has revealed that nowadays 30% of animals are devolved humans.
A spiritually evolved being can opt to take birth in the animal or bird species out of his own free will to pursue his spiritual practice undisturbed by the distractions faced in a human birth. It is possible for spiritually evolved beings to carry on spiritual practice even when in the animal or bird species because 98% of spiritual practice is subtle and internal to the person, i.e. not in terms of any tangible actions. When a spiritually evolved being takes birth in a lower species, ie. as an animal or a bird, it is up to him to also decide when to end that existence.
In this particular case, the parrots ability to speak and to acquire an extensive vocabulary is because he is a devolved human being.
He has not come down of his own free will. Hence, he does not remember his past human birth. He has come down as punishment for his demerits. He was a person at a spiritual level of 30% with intense desire to be the centre of attention. A strong attention seeking habit also results in a demerit as it enhances the ego, which is detrimental for spiritual growth.
