Recently a young Norwegian man asked Bill Nye what his perspective was on empathy in human evolution. Not when it comes to our bodies but how empathy influences us emotionally and socially. Bill Nye responded by taking an empirical perspective and examined how animals such as bonobos and chimps care for their young or mourn for the passing of their loved ones.
Bill touches on human consciousness and how it may not be as unique as we previously thought since animals demonstrate that they also feel emotions even without the ability to speak. Science is paving the way for us to better understand both animal and human emotions.
Learning more about empathy and getting in touch with our emotions could have a great impact on society. We could create beneficial new laws or help someone who needs our help because of empathy.
