Animal intelligence

Maybe it's time for us to re-evaluate how we define intelligence? What we have considered intelligence, to conclude what we have constituted as logical solutions to preconstructed problems designed to produce measurable results , is perhaps an outdated paradigm of what we from our limited view, as inventors of the conceptual intelligence, has managed to comprehend so far. Animals and nature does not cause environmental degradation, we do. It is our limited intelligence that has caused environmental degradation. In that sense animals and nature seem to have more knowledge and understanding of how to live intelligently and sustainably. The narrowmindedness of humanity, the limitations of our intelligence, our definition of intelligence, our values of the conceptual intelligence are obstacles we must learn to work with. The conceptual intelligence stems from cultural ideas of valuable personal traits. We value idiots who can solve mathematical equations, when we should value idiots who have the capacity to view the bigger picture, who possess omniscience. Wisdom. We are all idiots, except animals and nature. They are waiting for us to wake up and smell the coffee. Running into our lives, into our backyard with their babies begging for food, into our cars dying, into our slaughterhouses dying, into our boats dying, into our guns, dying. Into our social media showing their lives through human eyes, the death, horrors and cute memes. It's like opening a can of worms. We feel them. When did we stop having compassion for animals? Or is it a quality that has developed and still is? Are they entering our solipsistic bubbles consciously? Can we acknowledge that they are in fact smarter than us, have more wisdom and knowledge that goes beyond our intellectual comprehension and is something that needs to be experienced. Animals love. They love us. They love life. They love nature and they love themselves. We need to stop what we are doing, re-evaluate intelligence and learn to live in a peaceful  and sustainable co-existence with animals and nature. We need to listen to the animals, look in their eyes and feel them and promise them that this torture will end. Imagine the hopelesness they feel, being surrounded by idiots all this time and still loving them. We are ruining their homes, lives, murdering them and their children systematically for no good reasons, because nothing can justify this.

Today is my birthday (49) please donate to an animal rights organization.

Thanks Yohio. I don't know if he knows it's my birthday or just randomly released this video today, but I assume it's for me anyway.
