Premeditado

Las evidencias se acumulan, el ser humano no es ni único ni especial. Muchos “animales” nos igualan en muchas de nuestras supuestas habilidades.
En un estudio publicado esta semana en la revista “Current Biology” que detalla el seguimiento de un chimpancé durante años, se demuestra la capacidad de planear actividades futuras con total premeditación (y alevosía).

“These observations convincingly show that our fellow apes do consider the future in a very complex way,” said Mathias Osvath of Lund University. “It implies that they have a highly developed consciousness, including life-like mental simulations of potential events. They most probably have an ‘inner world’ like we have when reviewing past episodes of our lives or thinking of days to come. When wild chimps collect stones or go out to war, they probably plan this in advance. I would guess that they plan much of their everyday behavior.”
