Animals have two modes of sensing: focused, and panoramic. Non-selective or panoramic sensing evolved for the purpose of being receptive to and aware of sudden movements and changes in the immediate environment.

With the panoramic way of seeing and hearing, animals feel more involved and integrated, more a part of everything they sense.

This mode of our being, is a baseline experience for any philosophy or psychology of man, then without it we are only considering a limited version of what human beings can do and be. Only considering humans in the context of focus points. Only understanding a relationship between 'I' and 'God'; or self and the world; – without the panoramic balance of integration and nowness.

We're not considering the whole picture because we're only using part of our sensory abilities to feel it with.
