Damn, don't get too controversial now.

The rating of rationality can be higher and always is higher than the person trying to be rational. Rationality is less emotional than the person delivering it.

That is a very profound statement, God.

Is there some subtle kind of meaning that you wish us lowly ones to grasp here?
SAPERE AUDE!


If I thought that everything I did was determined by my circumstancse and my psychological condition, I would feel trapped.


What we take ourselves to be doing when we think about what is the case or how we should act is something that cannot be reconciled with a reductive naturalism, for reasons distinct from those that entail the irreducibility of consciousness. It is not merely the subjectivity of thought but its capacity to transcend subjectivity and to discover what is objectively the case that presents a problem....Thought and reasoning are correct or incorrect in virtue of something independent of the thinker's beliefs, and even independent of the community of thinkers to which he belongs.

Insects are animals as well so we can simplify it to animals are alive

I think that this is actually the first time I have disagreed with you on something.
I can be quite ignorant when it comes to well most things so I had to google it.
You are correct. .. not that I had to tell you that. But I needed to confirm it.
By the way, humans are animals too but then we know this, don't we?
We affirm it often.

I wouldn't have thought of insects as being in the same classification as animals though.

'Animal' comes from 'anime'--that which moves.

Maybe because of how small they are but the insect population comprises 98 per cent of the
entire animal kingdom and so what they lack in size they more than make up for in numbers
