Animals are far more attuned to nature than human animals
Yes humans are but animals also
If the answer is no then we have nothing further to discuss due to extreme arrogance
So my question to you is this, ATS. Does this change the way you view animals? Should it change the way we treat animals, such as animals raised and slaughtered for food? Will it impact the way we treat animals?
Well I agree with this OP. We have five cats, tow outside and three inside.
Earlier on a poster here argued that she conducted an experiment trying to show (already compromising her results) that dogs have a sense of justice, and so morality: she has two dogs; she gave one dog a larger piece of treat than the other dog. When the other dog realized it had been given less, she went up to the owner and made an awkward face, which, to the eyes of the owner, implied to her that the dog recognized the unjustness of that action.
What REALLY happened, and this only highlights the mental immaturity of the woman who made that claim, is first and foremost, the expression of a base emotion: jealousy.
To argue otherwise is to show a complete lack of analytical ability.
Toward what I believed to be the end of the evening, Xaxe, a great hunter, healer, and shaman, laid hands on me....I felt the energy, his energy, surge through my body. He had his hands on me for about twenty-five or thirty seconds, but it felt like he had only touched me for a split second. Time stood still. I literally had a short out of body experience. I could see him touching me from just above my body, almost like I was floating six feet off the ground, watching myself. All of a sudden I was back in my body observing an image of him thumbing through the book that contained all the pictures and moments in my life. I saw images of my childhood I hadn't remembered in years, pictures of my mother and me walking on a beach and shelling, very strong images. At the time, both during his touch and immediately afterward, I described it as him flipping through the pages of my life....Later the next morning, I spoke with Xaxe about the trance dance. He told me he wanted access to me in a way that was not possible through a translator....Xaxe's curiosity was such a caring, loving gesture....When he detached from me it felt like someone was unplugging a lamp from a wall socket. As he let go of me and continued to dance around the fire, I spontaneously burst into uncontrollable tears....I had been stripped to my emotional core, completely stunned by what I had witnessed so up close and personal.151 151 Andrew Zimmern, The Bizarre Truth: how I walked out the door mouth first – and came back shaking my head (Random House, 2009), 234-5.
Wow. I didn't realize you could read my dogs' minds!! "
"Mental immaturity of the woman"?
Whatever. Believe whatever you want.
