- Yes, Sola, animals are innocent as doves, are manipulative as snakes, and as violent and unmerciful as hungry lions, and as sexually immoral as rabbits. We do indeed empathize with them and sometimes even act like them -- but that's not always a good thing. We should not identify with them, and most importantly and relevant to this discussion, in Kierkegaard's opinion we do not experience time the same way they do.
