This article, “Can Animals Think?” is important because they know how and when do their needs.

If humans can experience the universal emotions of fear, anger, disgust, happiness, sadness, and surprise, then so can mammals. The real puzzle is: does an animal think about its state of fear?

    You have to first define what you mean by “thinking” as opposed to an animal just sensing or feeling something. In humans, thinking involves words and syntax (sentences). We don’t know of any animals with a sufficiently complex language to think i. In addition, we know that these animals have nervous systems very like ours, which respond physiologically like ours do when the animal is in circumstances in which we would feel pain: an initial rise of blood pressure, dilated pupils, perspiration, an increased pulse rate, and, if the stimulus continues, a fall in blood pressure.

      How do you know who you are? An animal just reacts to anything and everything around them. There is no self consciousness, no pretence, no other awareness than what comes naturally. They are simply being themselves at all times. Our pets are a bit. We need to try to see the world from a dog’s perspective so that we can provide them with an interesting and meaningful life. As a small example, we may think of a dog walk as providing physical.

Like a motion sensor senses motion but it probably doesn’t experience that it senses motion. Animals do—they react to movement: fight or flight or curiosity.
