A Serbian boy manifests magnetism strong enough to hold onto metal objects, http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1360081/Bogdan-The-seven-year-old-Serbian-boy-appears-magnetic.html
Animals of course migrate by way of earth’s magnetic field and recently it’s been discovered that humans carry a gene in their eye http://www.bionews.org.uk/page_97703.asp
that makes a protein, cryptochrome, which in insects senses the earth’s magnetic field.
Consider that it would be logical that these capacities didn’t stop evolving at that point, but continued to evolve into the behavioral modules of consciousness, or, looking at it another way, energy provided the template on which mental states and cognition evolved, which would then explain why human beings intuitively describe emotional experience in terms of energy; “wired,” “chemistry between them,” “animal magnetism,” “drawn together as if by gravity,” “electricity was in the air,” etc., etc., etc..

Books about Natural Dog Training by Kevin BehanIn 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.|
