Cm. MVC active model.
Where to look? The model is always active, it is the same model. And when the logic in the controllers is the lack of separation.
perhaps because of static typing to PHP. Not the point
In PHP, dynamic typing, and even worse, a weak dynamic.
As the model was going to write requests to the services.
In addition to the models eloquent you have the ability to do services. Here there and phite. Doesn't matter who acts as a "model", the entities or services. Their task is to query status and to form the passive view.
