It’s mostly impossible to get out of your own human head to really grasp your point of view is not the only one on this planet. The way a bird or a bat or a bunny or a beluga whale experiences their life on this planet is completely alien to us.

attunement occurs subconsciously. It's a consequence of the somatic system that manifests as innate responses, adjustments of behavior and mirroring informed by nonverbal cues — physical-corporal language, pheromone secretions, tone and timbre of voice or cry.
