Dear Bruno,
we are still in the anthropocentric/anthropomorphic failure to equate
EVERYTHING with our humanbased experience.
Organisms without brain-tissue do not exercise brain-functions as we THINK
they do occur in our 'head' (guts?) and do not develop similar thoughts to
us - the ways we try to understand our own thinking through neurons(?).
