Everything the panda does must mean something. It must be directed, consciously or subconsciously toward attaining the good life. What is the good life? Socrates once asked that question and hoped that one can direct one's life through an understanding that was distinctively philosophical, meaning, general and abstract, reflective and concerned with what can be known through inquiry. "What shall we do and how should we live?" This is the most important question. Any philosophy that makes us look foolish should not be trusted.
