  12. Yeah, I've heard they refuse to leave the dead body aand they also refuse to eat.
     
  13. Lmao wow when you actually think about all the various research projects, and how they are conducted it seems like a waste of time.

    But it is needed
     

  14. Trying to piece together the riddle of consciousness is never a waste of time.

    If other animals, besides us, mourn their dead, that's a major clue in the development of higher functioning consciousnesses like we have. Mourning the dead requires the capacity for self-reflection through ego modalities, something we have long thought other animals don't possess.
     

  15. Yup, and elephants make regularly pilgrimages to the sites of their dead.

    Shit is fascinating.
     
  16. Fuck yea nature and nature like drugs and sex sooooooo yea

  18. Haha and unfortunately it came from somebody who is having a hell of a time typing proper, grammatically correct sentences today.

    Yay American education
