Red Spider, good to see you in the Science And Tech Forum, this is actually my first time in here, but I saw your post and had to be apart of it. If you remember we were all taught that mice only have instenct. Ex: instead of a mice thinking what the hell am I doing in this cage there thinking, "I have to find food because nerves are telling me I'm hungry.". Mice and other animals lack the ability to reason, if a mouse could ask what am I doing in this cage, they then would ask, how can I get out, then if they are to ask that, they must use strategy, like what time is my cage open to make an excape. But obveouly mice dont see things that way. Is it possible to make a mouse smarter? This is very possible, using DNA, Cells, and other biogenetic hypothesis. If we were to give a mouse the DNA of say you or me, it will begin to think in reasoning, but at the same time, you have also have to concider a mouses brain mass. What will the mouse loose in the change. Will he loose his sense of sight, or balance. I'm sure these experiments are held in other places, say bases beneath New Mexico

since they have out brain cells, do they think (for ex.): "what the hell is going on??? why am i in this cage??? what is going to happin tomorow???"

If a human only had a few brain cells it would not be able to think. There is nothing unusual or special about human brain cells, thought isn't something that a brain cell does on its own.
