Design In Nature -5-

Here’s a point of distinction I’d like to make about this exceptional book and the principle of emotional conductivity, by which even human thoughts serve a flow principle (as well they should given the logical extension of the book’s premise of an overarching constructal law).

“The constructal law captures the broad tendency of social organizations to construct evolving flow systems that enable people and their goods to move more easily, more cheaply. This is not human desire. It is physics.”

Zane, J. Peder; Bejan, Adrian (2012-01-24). Design in Nature: How the Constructal Law Governs Evolution in Biology, Physics, Technology, and Social Organization (Kindle Locations 2308-2310). Random House, Inc.. Kindle Edition.

KB: Indeed, even human behavior is not apart from nature, but a part of nature just as much as is a river basin. In my book YDIYM I take this a step further. Human desire is physics as well. Furthermore, while it is true that a human thought can set an individual apart from the flow system, this will then increase an emotional charge (the human thus becoming an action potential relative to the flow, in other words like a rock perturbing the flow of the river) and this will build until it reaches a critical point and is enfolded back into the dynamic flow pattern. This charge increases the INTENSITY of attraction, and thus the net charge available to the system at large.

Books about Natural Dog Training by Kevin Behan

In Your Dog Is Your Mirror, dog trainer Kevin Behan proposes a radical new model for understanding canine behavior: a dog’s behavior and emotion, indeed its very cognition, are driven by our emotion. The dog doesn’t respond to what the owner thinks, says, or does; it responds to what the owner feels. And in this way, dogs can actually put people back in touch with their own emotions. Behan demonstrates that dogs and humans are connected more profoundly than has ever been imagined — by heart — and that this approach to dog cognition can help us understand many of dogs’ most inscrutable behaviors. This groundbreaking, provocative book opens the door to a whole new understanding between species, and perhaps a whole new understanding of ourselves.
  Natural Dog Training is about how dogs see the world and what this means in regards to training. The first part of this book presents a new theory for the social behavior of canines, featuring the drive to hunt, not the pack instincts, as seminal to canine behavior. The second part reinterprets how dogs actually learn. The third section presents exercises and handling techniques to put this theory into practice with a puppy. The final section sets forth a training program with a special emphasis on coming when called.
