There is no animal whose cognitive faculties and abilities even begin to approach the complexity of a human's, and, sadly, once any of us become aware of this fact, he or she will most assuredly therefore no longer be content with activities that do not in some way connect to these faculties.

Which of the following would be most useful to know in order to evaluate the truth of the position above?

(A) Is it possible to separate one's desires and needs from one's awareness of a truth about his or her faculties?
(B) Is it possible to fully satisfy someone who is not aware of the complexity of human faculties?
(C) How far from human-like are the cognitive faculties of the more intelligent animals, such as whales?
(D) Are there any people who enjoy physical pleasures more than they enjoy the pleasures of the mind?
(E) Are there any people for whom contentment is not a goal?

Can someone explain why OA is A and not B?

Content = Satisfied?
