According to computer analysis, the human brain contains complex neural pathways and structures revealing designs in more than three dimensions — indeed, there are structures as complex as 11 dimensions within the human brain.
But who has studied the brains of animals to look for structures of similar complexity? Do honey bees rely upon 8-dimensional analysis to build their honeycombs? Do trap door spiders rely upon 6-dimensional analysis to predict the behavior of their prey? Do gorillas perceive their lovers using the power of 9-dimensional perceptions? Can dolphins think in 12 dimensions?
I see no reason why this could not be not the case, though of course evidence would need to be developed to know for certain. We already know animals have special intelligences or skills or gifts that we do not possess. Even trees can “hear” water and move towards it when necessity calls in a manner that a human being cannot.
What we are talking about here is the possibility that animals are not “less evolved” than we are in some absolute sense, but they may be able to look into and perceive and analyze the universe in ways that we cannot.
We must learn … and to learn, we must learn to protect and serve our fellow companions on the Earth. And we must humbly open our imaginations to respect their unique gifts, even when we cannot see them or know for certain what they are.
