The squirrel asks or thinks nothing.
It just lives.
The frog does the same as does the boar and the deer and the bear.
Every creature sees and thinks and hears and feels according to what is occurring around them.
They smell and taste and become hungry and tired and rest and sleep and eat and drink water and breed and take care of their young.
Their senses are their brains.
These stimulants have brought about these thinking seeing imagining inventing mind fulfilling dreams we all have.
