Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Astrophysicist and director of the Hayden Planetarium, is often quoted on his thoughts and findings about the cosmos. However, this weeks design comes from one of his less known quotes about the human-animal connection from a scientific standpoint.:
“The other animals in the animal kingdom, whenever we presume some level of intelligence for them… further research shows that they’re smarter than we ever thought or cleverer than we ever gave them credit for being. Humans aren’t as good as we should be in our capacity to empathize with feelings and thoughts of others, be they humans or other animals on Earth, So maybe part of our formal education should be training in empathy. Imagine how different the world would be if, in fact, that were ‘reading, writing, arithmetic, empathy.’”
