Meet Maggie. She lives in LA. She recently noticed that her roommate, Milda, is very stressed out. Working long hours at home, due to the pandemic lock-down, has started to wear at Milda’s nerves. So, Maggie has been taking her out for a walk several times each day. Around the block. A drive to the grocery store. A walk in the woods. Milda is now doing much better. Do animals have consciousness? The answer is obvious.
