I think a lot of people might define sentience as a lifeforms ability to react to outside stimulus particularly when it comes to its own self-preservation. Very rudimentary.

I would say that to be Sentient would require the ability to empathize or react to the plight of another sentient being.

As we all know there’s a tremendous difference between subhuman hairless monkeys and an actual human being. Both are technically sentient but there are levels.

Thinking AND Feeling are both identified as components for consciousness.

If you are not self aware, as in not actively updating or even writing your own philosophy, you ARE NOT truly alive and are the walking dead. Someone else programmed you.
