170. So if an elephant is sad,
they must have memories of the past, but in carrying bones which in no way resemble deceased elephants, isn't it logical to assume elephants associate a symbol; in this case bones of their deceased friends and family with life?

Furthermore if a symbol and life can be associated, isn't that abstract thinking?

My understanding of the word abstract is thinking apart from perception.

Regarding the Earth's Magnetic Field's effect, doesn't it fluctuate and if it did, does this change those Webers and Maxwells, I read about in my Dictionary?

I haven't been to school in over thirty years, so please bare with my ignorance on any Physics level.
