All of her fluid, languid and deliberate behaviour indicates that she is hyper-curious and very relaxed. An acknowledgement of the location of each person is further wonderful evidence of elephant’s highly advanced cognitive ability to process information around them. All of this was intentional. She approached to discover this.
This for me is about communication and acceptance across a divide. Tantalising proof of elephant's capacity to cross the line between what we may first deem logical, and what is undeniably not.
Are these not the virtues we normally confine to being human?
If so, then this surely suggests we can discover a great deal by paying more attention to subtle signs, by tuning into a deeper and more meaningful awareness of our natural world. This can change your life!
