Animals and Awaretheory
Awaretheory applies to animals as well as to humans or other conscious aliens. Some animals may not be conscious in any way but they have behaviorpaths that are effected by the enviropath. Their physapaths might add to higher level consciousnesses through the fitoprocess. Animals having less complex nervous systems will have fewer possible physapaths thus fewer possible awarepaths. This means that the physapath of a bee is much more likely to be duplicated by other actual bees than the physapath of a more neurologically complex animal or human.
Different animals, such as bats and dolphins can and do have different types of senses, and more developed senses than humans. Thus they have different sensepaths than humans and other animals at a fundamental level. The senses in animals that are the same as in humans can be more developed in animals like smell and hearing in dogs. These physical facts about bodies mean that humans could be modified to have other senses or more developed senses than they have. This means that they can have a different awarepath but the same ixperiencitness with these enhanced senses or different senses organs.
Can we know what it is like to be a bat or dinosaur? If bats or dinosaurs are not conscious we do know what that is like because we are sometimes not conscious ourselves. Our brains might already produce some of the partial types of consciousness that animals feel like color or pain but without the interpretation and integration that we create with our larger brains. Can we actually feel and sense what it is like to be a bat dinosaur or other animal from a human perspective? In an experience machine or itofazpaducer we could produce all sorts of different sensepaths and internapaths for any point in your life or at any point in the life of any version of you that has your ixperiencitness.
