“Thought - why do we Think?”
The power of thought - why do we have it?
Thought is not uniquely human, but it is unique in the level
of thinking power that mankind possesses.
Animals can think, but to a very limited sense compared with humans. In
recent decades, researchers have been
investigating the ability of many living creatures to think and plan -
whether it be a coordinated attack by a pair of tigers; or apes that can be
taught to communicate with humans by hand-signing (using deaf and dumb sign
language); or birds that can problem-solve to retrieve food from a puzzle;
or even in some tribes of apes that use tools to kill their prey and to fight other ape
But, as far as I know, no species except mankind can think about thought
itself, can reason, can form alliances and coordinate wars to destroy
other thinking people, can create a global interdependent society, can
allow millions to starve in third world countries ("We've got to think of
our own economies..."), can pollute the environment to dangerous levels, and
can mess with the very stuff of life itself in their search to challenge God.
