…because nothing is as good as you can imagine it. No one is as beautiful as she is in your head. Nothing is as exciting as your fantasy. — Choke, Chuck Palahniuk (via seabois)
We think we understand the rules when we become adults, but what we really experience is a narrowing of the imagination. — David Lynch (via devilduck)
Siempre es levemente siniestro volver a los lugares que han sido testigos de un instante de perfección. — Ernesto Sábato. (via cigarrillosdelhartazgo)
El arrepentimiento es como la mordedura de un perro a una piedra, es hacerse daño de forma inútil. — F. Nietzsche (via blackladydie)
We tend to think animals are lower than us, but all the scientists in the world couldn’t design and operate a bumblebee’s wing. We can’t jump or run very fast, and we can’t carry vast weights like an ant can. We can’t see in the dark and we can’t fly except crammed in a noisy tube like sardines, which doesn’t count. Humans compared to animals are almost totally deaf, and we can’t smell a fart in an elevator by their standards. We are finite and separate, and neurotic, while the consciousness of an animal is at peace and eternal. We strive and go crazy to become more important. Animals rest and sleep and enjoy the company of each other. We think we have evolved upwards from animals but we have lost almost all of their qualities and abilities. The idea that animals don’t have consciousness or that they don’t have a soul is rather crass. It shows a lack of consciousness. They talk, they have families, they feel things, they act individually or together to solve problems, they often care of their young as a tribal unit. They play, they travel, and medicate themselves when they get sick. They cry when others in the herd die, they know about us humans. Of course they have a soul, a very pristine one. We humans are only now attempting with the recent rise in consciousness to achieve the soul that animals have naturally. —
This sums up everything I want to tell someone who thinks animals have no consciousness.
