I say the trees and birds speak.

You think I am “projecting.” I think you are giving plants and animals too little credit.

The source of anthropomorphism.

Our ancestors didn’t anthropomorphize the earth to give causal explanations. They did it to humanize it and to make worlds. The simple proof is we do the same thing to mechanical and virtual worlds.

Not so certain only we can do that.

Most charges of anthropomorphism presume too strong a separation between the human and the non-human.
