Can you imagine? The fierce tiger is actually the cutie of the “social fear world”. They don’t want to endure the pain and embarrassment of face-to-face communication, but communicate with their kind through smell. For example, spraying gas and liquid with unique flavors on tree trunks to declare territorial sovereignty; if they find other tigers invading, they do not want to “fight” directly, but use roars to scare off the invaders.
Although tigers have long been accustomed to solitary travels, when they think of breeding offspring and having to come in contact with tigers of the opposite sex, their brows wrinkled with the word “Chuan” and their faces were reluctant.
In fact, it is not surprising that the Tigers will “communicate fear”. As solitary animals, “social terror” can be said to be a natural attribute, and it is also their survival need. Tigers are at the top of the food chain and do not need to unite against foreign enemies or cooperate in hunting. The existence of the same kind will reduce food and increase the pressure of survival, so they are willing to do “social terror”.
Unlike tigers, Canadian brown bears also live alone, but they need to store a lot of fat during salmon migration and spawning every fall, so they will have meals with other strange bears. At this time, in order to make female brown bears who concentrate on bringing their cubs into estrus as soon as possible, some male brown bears will kill the bear cubs around them. Therefore, female bears have to become “social terror” to protect their babies and go to the remote areas of the bears. Place.
I thought that only solitary animals would be afraid of socializing, but I didn’t expect social animals to be the same. Take Ethiopian wolves as an example. Wolves are social animals, but there is a strict hierarchy in such wolves. The wolves at the bottom live without dignity and can barely maintain food and clothing. Therefore, wolves often live alone and stand on their own hills.
In addition, a study published in “Contemporary Biology” once again proved the fact that social animals live in groups of animals. When animals play or approach, their social spheres will gradually shrink, changing from being lively to being alone. This is very similar to the feature that humans gradually shrink their social circles as they grow older.
Therefore, even animals are “social fear”. We humans have to face all kinds of people, and it is normal to be afraid of social interaction.
In 1925, American scientist Mai Kai conducted an unprecedented mouse experiment: a group of newly weaned pups were divided into two and treated differently: the first group enjoyed the “Most Favored Nation Treatment” and was given sufficient food to feed them all day long; the second group Subject to “discriminatory treatment”, only provide food equivalent to 60% of the first group, hungry their skin.
When people looked enviously at the treatment of the first group of mice, the results of the experiment were unexpected: the first group of rats were hard to be full for more than a thousand days, and they died early before they reached “middle age”; the second group of hungry mice doubled their lifespan. It is surprisingly healthy and long-lived, with smooth fur, tight skin, agile movement, and well-proportioned body. What is more intriguing is that its immune function and even sexual function are slightly higher than that of full mice. Scientists have followed by analogy and expanded the scope to bacteria, flies, fish and other organisms, and found a surprisingly similar scene.
There is no end to science. Scientists never try to stop. They go from the outside to the inside and trace the roots, thus forming a theoretical pattern of different opinions and controversy among a hundred schools of thought. Among them, many people believe that the “limit” is justified and well-founded.
This view holds that there is a fixed limit on the amount of calories an animal can consume in a lifetime, and once the limit is used up, it means the cessation of life. Eating more and less is inversely proportional to the length of life: the more you eat, the overeating, the limit is used. The sooner the time is over, the life will end sooner; if you eat less, the water will flow, the consumption of the quota will be slowed down, and the life will be prolonged accordingly.
Although humans are advanced animals, they are animals after all, so it is also applicable to the “limit theory”. Only by learning self-discipline can your life be better and happier.
