the 2012 Cambridge Declaration of Consciousness

Animals share the experience of consciousness with humans, not on a ladder, but in our respective environments.

Wherever in the brain one evokes instinctual emotional behaviors in non-human animals, many of the ensuing behaviors are consistent with experienced feeling states, including those internal states that are rewarding and punishing.

So, an animal can binge-eat? Do the alpha’s favourite? Not-participate in the collective hunt? And derive both pleasure, pain and fear out from that?
