This is hard for most pitbull people to set down and read and understand the point. Yet it might benefit you in your breeding
program. An "enchanted loom" is how Charles Sherrington described the interconnected net of cells that makes up our three-pound
control center. Indeed, there is something almost magical in the notion that all our mental processes, from perception to memory to consciousness itself, can be described entirely by cellular activity in the brain.
The basic functional unit of the brain is the neuron, a special cell that sends electrochemical signals to other neurons (across a "synaptic gap") and thereby creates those patterns
that make up what we think of as the mind.
The complexity of the task requires a fairly inconceivable 100 billion neurons, interconnected via trillions of synapses.
A single firing neuron might communicate to thousands of others in a single moment. No computer comes close to the complexity
of these communicating bits of organic matter.
What's more, for each neuron there are some 10 to 50 glial cells providing structural support, protection, resources and
more. There are 1000 Billion cells in the brain. with 900 million supporting cells. The brain has 6000 different genes.
With that many variations. It is almost impossible to breed for a predicted outcome. Therefore I feel it is all but impossible
to breed dogs with a definite outcome of gameness. Then when you throw in all the variations of the cells and genes
that make up the other parts of the dog that give them their physical characteristics. You have a chore ahead of you in trying
to breed perfection.
I believe breeding gameness into our dogs can happen more by breeding dogs that are game. Yet the genes
do not always get handed to where you expect them to. Plus some dogs that aren't real game produce some dogs that are real
game but not as often. I also believe that each dog has so much gameness. Just like some car batteries have more
cranks than others. The amp hours that are greater in a batter can be compared to dogs gameness that is greater.
