EMPATHY WITH ANIMALS
Animals have three modes of being: active, passive, and broadband. Animals need all three to survive.
Non-selective or broadband sensing evolved for the purpose of being receptive to and aware of sudden movements and changes in the immediate environment. It can only be done now. It evolved as a balance for focussed activity, and while passively dozing.
Humans balance their active focussing mode with sleeping, and sometimes seeking inner peace; but modern man hardly ever uses this third mode of being, our broadband mode.
Could we be missing out on something?
