No Birth - No Death - No Death - No Birth.

Is the mind the same as the body? What is consciousness? Can machines have it?

The first time I see a treatise on the problems of mouse economy written by a mouse, or am stopped on the street by a dog saying, "listen here, I can think as well as you do and I vote Democrat," I will certainly give the possibility that other animals have minds consideration. Until then, there is no reason to.
This may qualify as the most inexplicable post I've ever seen on a forum.

Excellent point. Many people have difficulty understanding subtleties and satire.

On what evidence are you making this negative knowledge claim? Surely, "I don't know whether otters possess knowledge" is all that you can say?
No, I say otters do not have knowledge because knowledge is only possible to human volitional, intellectual, rational minds.

Is this something you accept as axiomatically true, or do have evidence to justify your claim of possibility/impossibility?

RCSaunders, if you keep a companion animal such as a dog or a parrot, or farm animals, are you kind to them? If so why?
