  • Just as a quick update, I should be rolling out the first revisions to the symbol system in the next few days!
    Woot! I'm back and alive and going to try again to not be all reclusive and wrapped up in books! LOL
    Yeeeeeeeeeee, I found a crazy horsewoman to teach me dressage, who practices horsemanship informed by cognitive ethology and understanding of horse perception and behavior.

    This makes up for reading really infuriating arguments by old white armchair philosophers of language against mind in animals. I subject myself to this kind of torture to "know thy enemy", so to speak. They're all incredibly wrong. Animals are minded individuals and most mammals at least are self-aware given the evidence that is coming to light on metacognition studied in everything from dogs, horses, cats, apes, and such, but also birds and marine mammals.

    Oh yes. I agree.

    Those who believe "Beasts of burden" are simply mindless or "Dumb beasts" are ignorant! 
    Sure to the human eye they seems so. Many animals "submit" to our actions.... but why is that? because we THINK and APEAR to be dominant!

    We aren't.

    However, when we work WITH an animal instead of trying to prove ourselves better than them, we see we can gain common ground....

    THIS ability is what humans CAN GRASP!!!!!

    Many...However, only think of it as a game to see who is weaker and who is lesser of a being....

    Once you learn that bigger brains and more "cognitive ability" mean nothing to other species.... THEN you will understand that life and NATURE in general is more important than the information you buy to train your horse (or other animal)

    Legit.... Listen to your "pets" and read their body ligo. (inform yourself on what that lingo IS) And you are set!!! If you CAN'T understand the animal you have in your possession ( no matter how hard you study or 'try').... You may as well give them up to an adoption agency because hun.... at least those looking for abandoned animals can relate to them in respects to their WELL BEING.

    What is talking to people? I don't know. I talk to books. And mainly speak through music. I prefer animal sounds to spoken language.

    yeah, talking was the biggest mistake for homo sapiens to evolve.
    I've been kind of silent lately due to being a very reclusive individual. But I'm hoping to start participating more again. I'm usually afraid people will just hate me.

    In other news, I've been working on a paper to revises the therian "theta-delta" and am going to release the third draft for an open community feedback period.
