The Rat's Nightmare

The Rat's Nightmare

Interestingly, rats that have witnessed the torture of their fellow animals also tend to have bad dreams.

It's just the brute fact that they dream that, in my view, has these pretty fundamental moral implications. It means that those animals have moral interests that we are obliged to take into consideration. And those can include their interest in not being harmed, their interest in continuing to live, their interest in cultivating and pursuing their own life projects unimpeded by human action, and so on.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Sean Green

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
