    This is such a fascinating concept! I was just thinking the other day… about cats! They are quite aware of some things; where their food is, where they live, who they live with, and so on. I know in one case, our cat Goldie walked some 5 miles home across a town she couldn’t possibly know (and yet she did, and she made it back). On the other hand, there is so much they don’t know and can never know; where did the other kitties go, who were placed with other people? Why did the family move suddenly, and why is the house not the same? I think over-all, we are just like cats! Things go in on life we cannot perceive or understand – ever. Just the nature of the universe. Or, you could say it’s like a chess game… lol! Cool work

  • Nadya, thanks for you observations! I think you really got what I was aiming at… :-)
