Whether a worm is conscious or not (perhaps a better term would be "sentient") might actually be open to some interpretation. Would you consider rats or dogs to be sentient? they both seem quite intelligent at times.i dunno bout rats. Possibly. Dogs definitely. They have internal lives: they dream, mourn, love...Is there, conceivably, an absolute test by which we may say "X is sentient and Y is not"? Or are there varying degrees of sentience which blur into each other?I really don't know, and this I think is one of the more interesting questions.
