Santino has autonoetic consciousness

"I'm personally convinced that at least chimps do plan for future needs, that they do have this autonoetic consciousness*" Dr Osvath said. A conclusion that was made upon observing Santino, a chimpanzee at the zoo in the city north of Stockholm. Santino calmly collected stones and stored them to be used later as missiles. Santino was also observed as having the ability to learn and do things that furthered his cause.

A greater scientific feat would now be to find out whether the specie inhabiting Greater Lebanon possesses autonoetic consciousness and if not (highly probable) how to induce or infuse it into them.

*Autonoetic consciousness constitutes of the ability to remember and mentally relive past events in addition to imagining the future and making long term plans.
