Have you ever raised a person of a different species who doesn’t speak or understand your language, in my instance English?
All of my adopted children were/are non-human.
That’s what I do best – understand non-humans.
If I can understand non-humans, then why or how could anybody think that I don’t understand humans?
Me being one.
Where there is a language barrier, a more sophisticated mode of communication emerges – often presenting itself in simplistic but more profound ways.
Integrating human communication with other species communication is a gift that all animals share if they open themselves to it.
Maybe the lion doesn’t want to – maybe the human doesn’t either. But maybe the monkey makes two fools look smart by making them both laugh.
