The cognitive psychologist Merlin Donald posits 3 stages in the evolution of Humans: the episodic, mimetic and mythic. Imagine three threads, one blue, the second green and the last one red, corresponding to the 3 levels. In all creatures, a thread runs through them binding them together, such that alone these creatures do not "make sense", because the inbuilt knowledge - behavior - they bring out in their actions requires the presence of a conspecific on the other end to make the actions meaningful.

the meaning of the eye perceives, is more like the truth is subjective to each and everyone.. I posted an article about a man who was freed of charges of stealing food cause he was hungry; Many saw it as wrong and others as a right..
The only truth we have; He was hungry and there was food nearby.. If intelligent design is your father, he better feed you to..
