Animate objects

If we were to flip a coin–tails I win, heads you win.

The coin is not bias. It has no narrative of the world around it. It doesn’t care how wins or loses. The coin doesn’t feel bad and its day isn’t ruined by the result. It’s an inanimate object.

But we care. We care who wins the toss.

So how can something that is made of matter, made of atoms in one form care, but not in another?

Further, how do you take a seemingly set of inanimate objects like blood and bones and get to “I”?

The same could be said about electricity. Connect a bunch of wires and you get electricity to use your toaster but with people you get thoughts and ideas.
