Alright faggot, simplest example would be how dogs comprehend the concept of loyalty. Do you really think they're a bunch of machines that automatically protect their owners? No.
They're conscious only enough to realize who should they protect. They don't question why, their level of consciousness is too low for that.
Us humans are just higher level than them, I mean we used to be apes, a bunch of animals too, but we just developed and so did our consciousness.
There's also some methods the females use to seem more attractive in aim to gather a spouse I think, that CLEARLY indicates they're self aware about their looks, or their state, doesn't matter, they ARE conscious.
