Thank you for a great question. If we think of spiritual profundity as a deep and truthful perception of reality, I think that at least some other animals are more likely than humans to have it. Transcendence, for Iris, is not going beyond the world but being connected to it. What is to be transcended are the self and its filters, not reality. Spirituality, then, is seeing clearly, often with joyous amazement at the infinite richness of the reality outside of ourselves. Animals can spend time just looking at, or simply being in, a world that, it seems to me, they are more ready than we are to accept as it is.
