Pensive monkey, a photo shared in the Boing Boing Flickr Pool

Initial work in xenoexistentialism suggests that the human condition is a greater absolute burden than the simian condition; but that the burden per unit mass is proportionally a good deal greater in the smaller monkeys, such as those above.


I don’t have the foggiest idea in hell what you just said but it sounds like it could be profound so I gave you a “like it”.

Existential burden to mass ratio: the new BMI.

Ideally, existential burden should really be examined according to self-consciousness, rather than mass; but if there’s a term used for quantifying degree of self-consciousness I have no idea what it is(and, if it’s from continental philosophy, probably can’t pronounce or spell it…)

Ithink it means the smaller you are, the heavier the stuff.
Except us. Our stuff is really heavy.
