LIFE | Do animals and plants have emotions? / 动植物也有情感么?


Butterfly and human

Do animals and plants also have emotions? Cure [Anthropocentrism] - "80% of animal babies in nature end up in the stomachs of predators. We humans are also a member of predators. Whether we are pure vegetarians, vegetarians or carnivores, in order to survive , must be killed. Even every piece of chocolate comes from animals and plants that have been crushed, heated and reshaped.

By definition, almost all living things have killing behaviors. After all, only plants can use their own chloroplasts to absorb and convert solar energy. Human beings have a desire to protect animals, which does not mean that animals will protect us. Our tendency to belittle animals is actually a sign of fear of losing our specialness as humans.

Humans' sense of self-worth is based on the mind, not the senses; however, our senses are actually duller than those of many animals. We'd better put down our arrogance and cruelty towards animals and plants. Until one day in the future when humans can live without relying on animals and plants, we can choose to respect and discover the shining points of other species: earthworms, snails, ants in the park after the rain The dreams, desires, happiness and joy of mammals, birds and even plants can be the source of our happiness. ” 🙏 🌱

人类的自我价值感建立在头脑,而并非感官上;然而,我们人类的感官其实比很多动物都要迟钝。我们最好放下对动植物的傲慢和残忍,在人类可以不依靠动植物过活的未来的某一天之前,我们可以选择尊重,发现其他物种的闪光点:在雨后公园里的蚯蚓,蜗牛,蚂蚁,哺乳动物,鸟类甚至植物的梦境,渴望,幸福和愉悦,都可以是我们快乐的源泉。” 🙏 🌱
