The cartoon carries weight because we can read it in two ways. One reading is that our animal predecessors knew what life is all about but we brainy humans make it too complicated.

The evolution of consciousness is not well understood, but it’s nice to think that when it happened, it felt like this. We still react this way at moments—we think, Wow! I’m alive!

The two men in the cartoons are similar. They’re both making the leap towards a more complex and more conscious life.
