Little by little, science is coming closer to understanding emotion as the universal operating system of animal consciousness. In this study,
various species of animals are found to respond to the distress calls of other species’ infants. This is because an infant no matter the species is an emotional ground, a preyful essence. Similarly, when an animal is in distress, it is emitting prey energy, i.e. vulnerability. It is broadcasting that it can absorb and conduct another being’s Drive and this draws others toward it, emotion running from predator to prey is the universal base line of code, this is the case whether one is looking at an infant, a paramour, or a defenseless prey. It’s a thermodynamic principle, the very architecture of the animal mind, a universal principle of attraction. Now because an infant can manifest a predatory aspect pronounced enough to reflect the projection of emotion back to the adult, then a caregiving urge and species-specific suite of reflexes becomes available to the adult. Care giving follows from prey-making because the oldest relationship between sentient beings is the predator/prey dynamic, not the parent/offspring one, and evolutionarily the latter must follow from the former.
Emotion is thermodynamic, it moves from high to low pressure, which behaviorally translates from predator to prey, this is consistent across the animal bandwidth no matter the context, it is a principle of conductivity.

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.|
