Yep, although I've had people say that Max is just sensing my disapproval and acting in an appeasing manner to keep me from disciplining him (which is usually just The Voice Of Shame), in truth I generally find out that he's done something bad when he comes to me with the guilty act.


Haha. Dogs, got to love them. Cats are much more sophisticated, hard to read.
Dogs are usually far more obvious. Is this due to the idea that they are more loyal
to us, or thought to be more than felines, I wonder?

Dogs also have demonstrated a loyalty to their fellow dogs,
that would seem to indicate a higher thought process.

There is only an illusion that cats and dogs are different. They each have their own distinguishing qualities. No different to a keyboard or a mouse really.
I wouldnt even use the word intelligence when it comes to animals because how can anyone be sure what that is since it is a label that tends to apply to the best "reguritators"

Something in common with vomit really.

More interesting info


When watching a movie, the cortex processes an enormous amount of visual and auditory information. The human-specific resting state networks react to this stimulation in a totally different way than any part of the monkey brain. This means that they also have a different function than any of the resting state networks found in the monkey. In other words, brain structures that are unique in humans are anatomically absent in the monkey and there no other brain structures in the monkey that have an analogous function. Our unique brain areas are primarily located high at the back and at the front of the cortex and are probably related to specific human cognitive abilities, such as human-specific intelligence.

Let me know when they find the "sub-conscious".

Oh wait. I forgot. They already know how to tap into that. Nevamind.

Have they tried removing this ball of neurons, and see what happens afterwards?

These are funny claims, in a fuzzy area where proving anything is uncertain.

The soul can be in different parts of the body at different times. Soul is the entity that is responsible for 'conscience'. Soul does stay behind eyes during waking hours, but soul is not a ball of nerves.

The mistaken assumption of medical science of body being 'alive' and mind somehow controlling body without soul is going to lead nowhere.

Monkeys were found to have one unique network active during movie watching,
while humans had two other unique networks.


Fits nicely with the newer study you have posted.

What specifically points to "design" rather than chance?

Are you pushing intelligent design here? Seriously? Like... for realz??

If you follow me around, stalking me like you are
you could twist enough to convince yourself of anything.

If you want to discuss the OP, do so;

Scientists say they have located the 'conscience'

in the vlFC.

why try and derail the thread. Start one of your own.

This thread is in my subscriptions. I have replied to two posts you have made.

I resent the accusation of "stalking". Please don't be so paranoid.

You brought up the "design". I posed a question. If you are offended by my question, that's your deal.

This in no way points to intelligent design. If this isn't what you meant, please clarify, if you'd like to continue.

I'm not going to put up with any of your games, FYI.

How convenient of you to have deleted the comment. Shows the dishonesty at play.

please clarify, if you'd like to continue.



No thank you, not in this thread the subjects are quite different.
If you start a thread on the topic you wish to discuss, perhaps.
No reason to take this one off topic.

My consern with this, otherwise incredible discovery, is that it appears to suggest that no other organism known has a concience.

It would make perfect sense that a humans would be far more developed, however, many other animals depict a sense of consciousness as well. Why would that not at least have an underdeveloped area? Instead of none at all?

Hopefully, peer review will have a more detailed declaration.

No wonder why it hurts me around there so much

Nice find


I'd check your sinuses.

So they've found the conscience? That's great, and it's about time, too. This world has been operating free of conscience for some time now.
