Innocence lost - Part 2

At the age of four children lose their innocence and begin to engage a reality where motive and intention are more important than understanding and growth.

In all probability the trigger for “crossing over” is the combined result of normal development and the realization that the emotions they emphatically feel do not always correlate with the tone of speech that they hear or the facial expressions and actions they perceive.

In an honest and open society all these sensory experiences maintain a coherency and harmony that result in the child’s fist construct of reality.  According to scientific research, one of the first sensory skills that infants develop is the ability to determine between various facial patterns, and to recognize them in different faces.

The opposite is also true, and before "crossing over" children are able to discriminate between different individuals
in a particular species, and they can recognize and remember individuals that they have seen more than once. All of this as a result of facial pattern recognition.

What is even more astounding is the fact that this ability go beyond the human race to include fowl, pigs and sheep. At least those were the animals I know that were tested, and it is only one of the daily discoveries we are making in the field of human development.
