Is this insect happy??
Is it "anthropomorphisation" to say that this insect looks happy? There's no doubt a dog can be happy. And I've see happy hamsters. So why not the insect? If the goal of universal consciousness is self-actualization and ultimately happiness, why not start at the lowest level of organization where it can create awareness and feelings? And the insect actually is a fairly high level of organization, compared to, say amoebas. I really have to catch up with what scientists are saying the same thing, since there were some say similar things 15 years ago (whose names I've forgotten), so there must be more today.
