This explains it all!
Okay...you know how men always ask why women go to the bathroom in groups? Well, I've been doing a little research for a write up about our newest Namaste Yarns and I found this little item about alpacas in Wikipedia:
To help alpacas control their internal parasites they have a communal dung pile, where they do not graze. Generally, males have much tidier, and fewer dung piles than females who tend to stand in a line and all go at once. One female approaches the dung pile and begins to urinate and/or defecate, and the rest of the herd often follows.
Because of their preference for using a dung pile, some alpacas have been successfully house-trained.
Do you see how obvious it is? Through some cosmic anomaly that has occurred (maybe a Teilhardian event of some sort) modern women have become attuned to the morphogenetic field for alpaca bathroom behavior! One goes, we all gotta go.
Somehow I don't think this is the morphic resonance Rupert Sheldrake was attempting to explain in his newest edition of "A New Science of Life"
