The child does not show even a trace of arrogance, which subsequently encourages the adult civilized man to separate the sharp feature of a private nature from any other animal. Without hesitation, the child gives the animal full equivalence (think “picture family”, where the dog has been a full and important member), his uncontrolled emotions he feels, perhaps, more akin to the animal than him seeming mysterious and incomprehensible to the adult.
