yeah, ok, compared with bugs there is a difference. but thats an extreme comparison. the intelligence of the animals we compared before are about the same scale. a whale is not significantly smarter/dumber than a pig. and often its not even about that.
i mean...people would never kill their pets for example, even if it is "just a mouse/hamster" or some sort of spider. yeah, you have a connection to your pet, but how does your hamster deserve life more than "just some whale". intelligence is what we argue with, but its not actually the reason. we are just not used to whales being eaten over here in the western world. if you grew up eating whale meat you wouldnt care either.

what do we interpret as self aware?
just because some animal doesnt understand a mirror, that doesnt mean its less cruel to kill it. it realizes it doesnt want to die and its in pain when held in shit conditions. thats how nature do.

Of course, but it's not always so black and white. An ant for example, while very much alive, is basically a biological robot. Signals fire off and it does it's programmed thing, it's pretty safe to say they don't suffer in the same way a cat would or a dolphin or a bird or a human. Difficult to know where to draw the line, but if we can't figure that out we can at least cut down on our indiscriminate slaughter of species especially those we figure to be intelligent.

Pigs are way smarter than dogs tho and one of the tests they do to check self awareness is if an animal can recognize it self in a mirror and pigs can do just that while dogs can't even do that (at first anyway).

Pigs might be kinda smart but they're still dumb as shit.
So are camels, they're dumber than horses, don't know about goats though.

Not necessarily. All mammals are not self-aware. For land mammals it's widely believed to be limited mainly to a select few primates. Research has only really extensively been done on primates/dolphins that sort of thing though
