Speaking of nonhumans


When humans discuss animal communication/languages they inadvertently reveal how reductive the applied analytical frameworks they believe in factually work.

All complexity of nonhuman animal communication/language that is going beyond any of the concepts we might use, can’t be fathomed at the moment in which you decide to set the standards, instead of leaving the subject open to stand for itself and acknowledging your limitations in comprehension.

Understanding nonhuman animals is not a playground for humanity to show how omniscient their understanding of the world is.

We should be able to respect borders, differences, uniqueness – we don’t have to define others in order to respect them as “whole” equally complex yet different beings.
