I won't try to contend Ron's philosophical perspective, but I would
question his statement that "Humans are starkly unique from the other
animals to such a degree one should ask why we alone veered so far off
and so far ahead (or away) of everything else" as somewhat problematic
and perhaps scientifically not very informative as I don't see that we
have "veered so far off" in any objective way any more than anything
else. And as far as being "so far ahead", I'm still placing my money on
cockroaches and ants. Pity I may not be around to collect.
