The Coyo... sort of really isn't a different species neither is that Panther, Species is a word we invented but what we are is "Higher Mammals" I don't think there's much of a difference in other words "Am I not an Ape?" "I am also a Mammal" kind of variants of the same species, way of doing things, living in an eco system and surviving. Not really a different. Calling things so close to us a different "species" is kind of Ego related, we needed a word to say we were "better" than the other Mammals
Do you think if anything arrived to check out us out and you were in a shelter with a fire and farming and a craft was taking samples and it was far advanced of even human society now and legitimately a different species when it grabbed "you and mabel" lol off the farm it would differentiate between you and an ape it had found and your dog and cat a bear nearby? Or would you all be dumped in the Mammal bin with maybe a Carnivore/Herbivore separation at best?
interspecies friendships between critters who normally fall into a predator/prey schema happen. and they communicate.
tetra50, acceptance of one's nature does not mean acceptance of one's condition.
Being human means a lot of complex things: feelings, dreams, vices, virtues, fears, curiosity that overcomes those fears, laughs and tears, and so on. Being human means that falling is allowed, but standing up is a must. Being human means the will to fly, and the fear of falling. Both things together. You need to accept your nature, a nature that comprises ups and downs.

that souls (consciousness) is a scarce and precious thing that some strange life forms - let's call them "controllers" - need for them to exist. Further, let's assume the only way to store consciousness is using other life forms. Let's assume all life forms here are just that: storage containers that controllers use to store consciousness.
When they need to take some consciousness, you die. If they need to store more consciousness, someone is born. Life goes on, them the controllers living their own life, you the controlled living the life of a consciousness container.
Sure, consciousness is also a rare thing in itself: it confers existence to the container. This poses a problem for the controllers. Let's assume they cope with this minor problem by tweaking consciousness such that the containers (you) either do believe there is a creator (God will do), or there is nothing to worry about. Your controlled loop system is therefore set up.
So when it comes down to it then the more that one cares then the more that must die...
Keep calm and calmly explain to me what's wrong with gurus. I thought they were wise old men transmitting a sensation of peace and harmony.
You trust a tree, because it cannot move. No need to communicate with a tree, no danger perceived, for it cannot move.
it's an extraction device, not a conversation.
