    This major and enlarged edition of his book has sharpened their thrust. Are human mental experiences the only kind that exist? The aggregate responses of each section are calculated and the net value of the Promoters is shown. Griffin has made a career of detailed research into various aspects of animal awareness. Are animals capable of communicating mental experiences with conscious intent?

    Experiments they conducted used methods developed by Hallowell Davis to monitor the brains of bats and their hearing responses as they navigated their way past wires suspended from a laboratory ceiling. And the conclusion that emotional feelings are totally absent in all amphibians and fishes seems rather premature. It varies widely within our species, and it would be remarkable if the content of every animal's consciousness were identical. If this seems like cheating, try defining for me the word gene.

    A second major category of promising evidence about animal thoughts and feelings is their communicative behavior, which will be discussed in detail in chapters Consciousness may occur only rarely in some species and not at all in others, and even animals that are sometimes aware of events that are important in their lives may be incapable of understanding many other facts and relationships. True of false? However, he adds, "A confident belief in biological evolution leads me to expect that although mental experiences of other species may differ greatly from ours, they will turn out, when fully understood, to share important properties with the entities we meet through our individual introspection. This tends to become an intermediate category between perceptual and reflective consciousness, for an animal might be consciously aware not only of some part of its body but also of what that structure was doing.

For as Griffin says, the implications "oblige us to reconsider deep-seated assumptions about human nature, and to inquire whether our kinship with other living organisms may be closer than we have been accustomed to recognize.

He set up a minimal bat flight facility in a 9-by-7 square-foot room in a barn and then measured the ability of bats to avoid obstacles by having them fly through a barrier of metal wires suspended from a ceiling.
