    That alone...says it all...no conscience, not conscious, not human as far as I'm concerned.

    Just got the newest book on the works of Julian Jaynes by Marcel Kuijsten: Gods, Voices and the bicameral mind (read brain) and there is a chapter I can't wait to read...it applies here:

    "Vestiges of bicamerality have been documented in preliterate societies worldwide and researchers have also noted differences in aspects of consciousness based on differences in language"
    I've noted at times that the islamic languages don't have any words or concepts for, compromise, mutuality for example. I've often said that it is their mysticism, their laws and politics that prevents them from becoming "Conscious Human beings". Now we see that language plays a role also. It was the advent of language, written and spoken that lead mankind upon the path of self inspection or consciousness.

    I am sure that early man...even before he invented language...had a dog at his side.
