    Morphic Fields probably place a role in this, but it’s pretty apparent that living things don’t need a brain to be smart, and having a brain, or even a large brain, doesn’t necessarily make an animal smart. Humans being a case in point.

    maybe instead of trying to understand the “intelligence” of other creatures, we should stop considering our behavior intelligent and just look at it in terms of a sort of inevitability/probability/behavior gravity
