Q – What is the definition of sentience?
We make so much about it that we say only humans have it… or is that arrogance? Delusion? A form of xenophobia? Human-centric?
Cogito, ergo sum- René Descartes
“I think, therefore I am”.
But what is thought? Is it some form of perceiving what surrounds you? Or some self expression of soul? Something we cannot quantify?
If we cannot determine, objectively what thought is, then how can we say even that we have thought?
(goes back to scratching and sniffing my body)
And therefore the next question is how do we communicate what we think? Or is there such a thing? And how can we possibly agree if there is nothing truly objective under the sun?
