I think animals don’t just sit and doze or sleep. I believe they know how to reach into the Akashic Record, and there they commune with their kind. Theirs is not such a solitary life as it may appear.
It’s a great pity humans can’t readily do the same; then they could take counsel of the the greatest of our kind, and live by example, not, as now, by trial and error, or Gosh-and-by-Golly!
There is neither Time or Space left on this planet for such shenanigans.
