205) In the ecological approach to perception (Gibson, 1966), perception involves active interaction with environmental objects. Since this ability is so fundamental, we might expect the fetus to start developing it soon after it becomes physiologically possible. In the case of sound, that involves not only processing incoming information, but also interpreting it, and constructing auditory images of possible sound sources (McAdams, 1984). This process is essentially the same in human and non-human animals (Hulse, 2002).

It may be human nature to attribute mental processes, including one’s inner life and reflective consciousness of sensations and emotions, to other beings or objects such as pets (Archer, 1997). Animistic projection plays a role in the origin of art (Wulf, 1947) and religion (Roheim, 1932), and the theory of mind. As animistic projection involves the assumption or attribution of human characteristics, it may be regarded as a form of anthropomorphism (also called anthropomorphization or personification), which is an important issue in fields as diverse as veterinary science, ethology (animal behavior), animal welfare, evolutionary biology, anthropology, primatology, psychology, history, philosophy, and literary criticism (Mitchell, Miles, & Thompson, 1997).
