That is strong reason to think that insects and other invertebrates are conscious. Their experience of the world is not as rich or as detailed as our experience – our big neocortex adds something to life! But it still feels like something to be a bee.
Insects have similar structures in their brains as do we, and that might mean that have a basic form of consciousness.

a mix of corked Bordeaux, Saler's apéritif on crack, dead dog, and the Gowanus canal during summer. smells like a combination of burning garbage and Ricola They must be even more miserable in Chicago than I thought
What happens when seriously refined palates get hit with Chicago's famously bitter liqueur?

An ancient song repertory will be heard for the first time in 1,000 years this week after being ‘reconstructed’ by a Cambridge researcher and a world-class performer of medieval music

the explanation that weird people gravitate toward psychedelics, even in the sciences, is a strong one. But it’s sufficient that I am hesitant to repeat the common view that psychedelics are not at all dangerous, or that they have no permanent side effects. There seems to me at least a moderate chance that they will make you more interesting without your consent – whether that is a good or a bad thing depends on exactly how interesting you want to be.

So many people walk around half-dead, never dreaming what their brains are capable of. Most people spend most of their time on auto-pilot. How sad.

Amazing selection (130 taps!), but the place is loud and caters to mouth breathing sportsball dorks.
