The question is really why PETA thought their case was a worthwhile use of their resources.
Well, since the Universe is just a simulation, it's clear to me that PETA did this purely to spark the ideas in my head that I posted above.
Which was well worth all the trouble they went through, I might add.
Look, in all seriousness, joking and asinine behavior aside, animals will have tons of rights in the future after we develop voiceboxes for them that translate animal thought waves into English (and maybe French but definitely not Spanish).
It'll be like the dolphin in Seaquest or like any of those silly films where the animals talk, but it'll be real life. And we'll live next to all of them in harmony.
You'll be like Antman and can talk to the ants. Just think about it, that's all I'm saying.
Sci-fi today is Sci-reality tomorrow. I didn't make this stuff up.
