Animal Blog #1
What is an animal? I believe an animal is a sentient being that goes through a cycle of generation and corruption, or in more general terms, birth and death.The capacity to die is what validates the life. Life is the essential ingredient for an animal. However, plants are alive as well. What differentiates plants from animals is not a brain or a heart, but rather the central nervous system. This is what I mean by sentience, the ability to feel pain. This ability, or curse, to suffer is the common thread that binds all beings under the umbrella of the term animal.
