Instinct is learned subconsciously...
i couldn't understand enough of the rest of Lucky's post to know if i agree or disagree with it, but i do understand enough to know that the above statement is wrong.
"Instinct" isn't learned... it's "inborn" and "innate."
"instinct" is inherent in an organism at birth. here are some simple examples of "instinct:"
-a baby does not need to be taught (either consciously or subconsciously) to suckle at it's mother nipple.
-a dung beetle does not need to be taught to do the dung beetle mating dance.
-a robin do not need to be taught how to build its nest.
it's difficult to know but i think Lucky is babbling about training in a way that causes certain actions become a "reflex."
a "reflex" is not the same as an "instinct."
ps Lucky, I know i'm being picky. but, if you going to lecture, please have enough respect for the rest of us to know what your talking about. you've prattered on about Maslow in the past, so i know you've heard all of this sometime.
