Hi Catrice. I think the point Einstein was trying to make is that humans have the capacity for involved thought and should make use of it - that's what separates us from animals that simply follow their base instincts without understanding or contemplation

But why? A cow eating plants is no worse off for lacking knowledge of botany.
