„Dogs may be the social butterflies when at play in a dog-park, but their wilder relatives (the wolves, foxes and coyotes) are far more effective in working as teams. This is because, unlike dogs, wolves have evolved to resolve conflicts without conflict; members of a pack have an inherent understanding for order in the pack as they forage together.
This is also the case within the ‘plant-based’ animal world – wild horses and other herding creatures are constantly understanding their positions in the herd, with a few exceptions. This calls into question the long-held assumption that domestication and civilization have produced more cooperative individuals. When comparing human beings and their competitive behaviors to the more indigenous tribes in the ‘way outback’, the indigenous cultures are far more cooperative, rather than competitive.
Working for the collective good is a stronger tendency amongst the wild. In the canine world, wolves can literally run circles around domesticated dogs with collective group effectiveness. This is especially obvious in the disunion of village dogs, the free-ranging “domestics” without owners that make up eighty percent of the world’s dog population. They run in loose packs, surviving primarily on garbage, but are constantly fighting – very much like their “civilized” human counterparts. What this demonstrates is that natural evolution produced traits that work well together, but domestication (both human and other) has tended to reduce this genetic inheritance with contrary epigenetics. This discounts Charles Darwin’s “Survival of the fittest.” This does not allow for survival – fitting together is the effective way in both plant and animal kingdoms. Survival of the fittest is an unnatural domesticated trait.
Our prayer is that you’re one of the “wilder” ones working with compatibility, not competition, to grow humanity forward, and that you find collective consciousness to be a higher consciousness . . . a clearer path to fulfillment and excellence.”
