The Cartesian theory that animals are living machines is emphasized in the audio of this short video, to which we are opposed, even if you are a stick insect. "To be full of being is to live as a body-soul. One name for the experience of full being is joy. To be alive is to be a living soul. An animal--and we are all animals--is a living soul."
