We are “hardwired” by our Creator to deeply respond to animals. There’s a deep-rooted reason why we humans surround ourselves with dogs and cats and other animals. New research finds we are hardwired to respond to other critters. The secret is buried deep in a very old part of the brain, called the amygdala, long recognized as the seat of emotional reaction. Scientists at the California Institute of Technology and the University of California at Los Angeles were able to measure brain activity in 41 persons on a cell-by-cell level and found that neurons in the amygdala became extremely active when participants were shown pictures of animals.
In addition, it’s not just humans that show their affection for each other – animals do it too! We have personally experienced the full range of emotions around animals. Strong grief, great love, smiles, humor, affection….all of them.
Gotta tell you something so funny. Our bird “Joe” was watching a movie with us, but we didn’t know he was watching at first. It was a spy spoof type movie, and the hero is on a motorcycle with his girlfriend – being chased by the herd of bulls going running along the streets in Spain. So, our bird gets a better view by hanging on the side of his cage, and starts yelling really loud at the screen where the bulls are running. Joe is yelling “cha,-cha, cha, cha” ad infinitum as loud as he could. You could clearly see he was hanging there facing the screen and getting all excited. When we turned and saw him we just laughed and laughed so hard. It was hilarious. First time we’ve noticed he watches movies.
It is erroneously taught that animals do not have souls — with the churches, and religion, giving no comfort to those who have suffered the grief over the loss of a greatly beloved animal. Without hope, the people who have been heartbroken over the loss of their animal companion are devastated with sorrow. How cruel, and how false!
