It’s very common to listen from dogs or cats owners that animals are more human than most people. I’m not that radical. I’m also not as radical as my sister that can see a homeless at the street but can’t see a dog without finding it shelter and food. No i’m not. But i can’t help but find that who invented the idea of soul and after that mentioned that only humans have souls was really “human” in the bad sense of the word. We should always pay attention to animals. They are not civilized and yet we can see most of the virtues in them. It’s uncommon to find a person that is as loyal as a dog for an example. “Tabula Rasa” is supposed to define the learning process of an animal but in my experience it’s the oposite of that. Maybe there is no complex logic behind these creatures but the emotions are as sophisticated as ours or even more. I had this dog called Raggy. I was travelling when he got hit by a car and got to the vet almost dead. My flight was 4 days after that and i was feeling so guilty because i would not see him before his death. This dog held there for four days against all doctors predictions. I saw him alive for seconds and he closed his eyes. I know he waited for me. I just know. That’s a really deep and strong will that most say only humans have. I think differently. I think we can only read humans and maybe there are much more nobel creatures around. I get upset everytime i remember my dog. That was the most loyal thing i ever saw in my life. Maybe they don’t have language and they are not corrupt for that reason. I would love to meet a real Tarzan. I’m curious to see what kind of animal he would turn out to be.

Calm down. I’m pro it. I just heard from a friend that he got in trouble in his marriage because he was caught cheating and he engaged in a big discussion with me about how it’s instinctive and biological for man to have more than one lover as many other animals do. I know you will say as many already said that man are not supposed to behave as other animals and we do have the same amount of males and females in the world so no reason to think like bovine breeders. lol. But you will also agree that many still think that way. The difference now is that they know is not ok anymore to say it out loud. Do really man have different needs than women? Some guys say when a woman is satisfied she need no other. If she’s not satisfied she will change her partner. Guys on other hand can cheat without loosing the interest in their partners?? It’s a really weird subject for me because i’m maybe even lazy. I would never have the trouble of engaging with someone else when i’m still with my wife. It’s pointless and i’m not being cynical here. So i don’t get it but still it’s happening all around me. Is my sexual drive “discreet” and man are like animals or that’s a lame excuse for cheating? Are women like animal too?? Do they need to have more than one partner at the same time? I don’t know the truth about this. I know we are animals but we are intelligent enough to understand commitments we make and it doesn’t matter what the instinct says if you make a promisse and you expect the other person not to break it you also should not break it. Many things separate us from other animals and one is the full understanding of agreements and such. Other is that bovines doesn’t have lawyers.

Since the beginning of times children are really mean and the best witnesses to this are the animals and other children. The animals are not as vindictive as humans. If a dog ends up biting a kid after hours of eye poking or tail pulling is pure instinct and not revenge. Humans in other hand prefer many times to chicken in front of older mean kids and get their revenge with younger kids. That way bullying goes around generation after generation. Sometimes physically others psychologically. Some of those can leave marks for all our lives and kids don’t know better. I’m planning to have a child and it makes me think about this situation. I’m not sure what is worst. If my kid bully or gets bullied. When i was younger i always thought mean kids are the result of a broken home but now i see many kids that are totally unbalanced and apparently they live in happy families. Maybe too happy. Some say the lack of boundaries can result in things like this. The lady that works with my wife is four. He came to my place twice. I remember the first really well. The kid was kicking the walls for most of his half a hour visit and he would kick and look to us. The mom would ask him to spot and right after she did speak he started kicking again. My wife got my collection “Nemo” and gave it to him. He looked really menacing for about two minutes straight in our eyes and threw the doll aiming my wife’s head. He didn’t miss. Than the lady got ashamed and decided the visit was over but she never complained or reprehended he kid. The kid left the house screaming “stupid”. Well. I know the parents and they do everything for the kid and i heard the kid hurt really bad a younger kid at school. He got suspended and all. The mom was really upset because he got suspended as he was a amazing boy and if he did something i was because he had reasons to it. I don’t need to comment that the dog in this family’s house was “very agressive” and they have to give the dog away because it was trying to “hurt” the kid. That makes me think about my beliefs. I think nobody bullied this kid. He had not enough time for that. He didn’t live in a destroyed home so what about “Tabula rasa”?? Are people not supposed to be essentially good and society would makes us less pure?? Is it the other way around??? I don’t know. Just what i know is that kids are smart enough to know better and even smart enough to play dumb whenever that benefits them. And don’t get me wrong. I love kids. That’s just fruit of observation.
