My Response: The fact is that they had instinctive connections with each other; they lived according to their own laws. But animals also have their own laws. These laws are correct, natural, and innate. Animals spare each other and are under the power of these laws; the laws govern them.
Question: But did people feel as we do now that there are “me and others”? Or did they think it was all inside them?
Answer: They didn’t think. The animal does not think. It is controlled. His life is called instinct.
