A Philosophy On Animals

Rats, tigers, hamsters, alley cats, penguins, whales, elephants, sloths. What do they have in common? They are all, at the most basic level, other forms of life we share this world with. They remind us that we are not alone in life’s perils, and that there is a bigger picture. A bigger picture beyond tomorrow’s presentation and managing the budget. A bigger picture beyond a life’s devotion towards climbing the corporate ladder.

Now, speaking in human terms, these events do matter. How we live and prioritize our lives matters. But there is a bigger picture, and this bigger picture puts things in perspective. We are not all that there is. There is a huge diversity to life, each unique and valuable in its own way.
