Internalizing Anothers' Interiority

The most clear sign of a large degree of souledness is the internalization of other creatures' interiority. Compassion for others is what marks greater consciousness and is the difference between, for example, a mosquito who is more of an automaton and a dog who has rightfully earned the title of man’s best friend.

Consciousness then, is the fidelity in which one recognizes consciousness in others.
