The important thing to consider in discussions of domestication is that human beings are a part of nature as much as any wild animal. The basic code of animal consciousness is that the "negative-grants-access-to-the-positive." In other words, the predatory aspect of a being grants access to its preyful aspect, its body. So all animals are attracted to all other animals, the predatory aspect displacing the most amount of emotional "mass" and therefore creates the strongest force of attraction. Therefore human beings with such a pronounced predatory aspect create the strongest force of attraction (which also means the strongest force of repulsion) and we can see how much the movement of a human being through the forest displaces the emotional equilibrium of observing animals relative to other species. If an animal can perceive a preyful aspect in conjunction with a beings' predatory aspect, then it is innately informed how to move relative to such a being and can potentially connect with it. This is the innate basis by which domestication of a species is even possible. What is revealing to me about these domesticated foxes is that while they may be "friendly" and are able to connect with humans, they are not able to work for humans. This requires a higher prey threshold which was supplied by the wolf's evolutionary heritage.
