Do you try to model the cow’s personality, her features, her behavior?
I like to think of cows as living living representations of humans in my head. So I try to look at them in real life as though I am a really experienced animal owner. I have experienced a lot of cows in my life, and I have seen other people do the same thing. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t; sometimes it seems like I am an ordinary person with a cow as a pet but I really am not.
So in a way, I draw the cow in my head as an ordinary human – I am really not a real cow in the sense that I am a cow; I am just a normal human, who has the same interests and experiences as other sentient beings.
For example, I know I would be happy to share our interests and desires even if we are not living together.
It’s kind of like that – I am not a living cow but a normal human. I just have this desire to share my interests, and for other beings to share their interests or desires with me.
Is that something you learn from looking at animals as if you were looking at yourself?
Yes, for example I’ve found that sometimes I can get lost in the mind of another person. Maybe they don’t see a cow and are thinking about cars, computers, sports, etc. It might be a little difficult to look at your own minds in situations where that happens more often than not. That’s why we have these training methods: to help ourselves manage those kinds of difficulties with another person.
Is there an idea that keeps giving you comfort?
Sometimes it is because they are like my family. They take care of me and my children in their own way, so that is the most difficult thing for me. Other times, as in “My Cousin Vinny,” I have a very close relationship with other cows. It makes life all the more difficult.
