How Animals Practice Mindfulness

Chapter One
THE BROADBAND SENSES

This site is about the so-called 'peripheral senses'. I call them the Broadband Senses. The new concept of broadband, is an ideal word to describe how animals actively sense a wide range of signals, movements, and changes – as clearly in the central areas as around the peripheries.

BROADBAND THEORY

Animals have two ways of using their senses, focused and broadband.
All animals need to use both perspectives in order to survive.
Modern day humans only train and develop their focusing abilities.

How we sense the world determines how we experience and understand it. Broadbanding is another way of experiencing and understanding life. Modern man is neglecting something which every other animal needs to survive.
