No an animal wouldn't understand you're right, that's my point.
And why wouldn't a cave man understand? Teach him English and then he'll be as inquisitive as the next man.
There are questions out there that I'm sure neither you or me could comprehend, but we can still ponder over the question.
For instance, if you believe in God, 'why did God create us?' we can ask this question we'll never know the answer but we have the ability to at least
ask the question and that gives you insight to our state of awareness, which is consciousness.
that's all consciousness is, it's awareness of the self and the world. If you can ask questions to differing degrees, then you can grow in intellect
and knowledge and build a civilisation such as humanity has done.
Just because basing consciousness on a few questions sounds simple, doesn't make it so.
