Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
but animals do not act because of... they just act...

Do you mean

--animals have no reasons for their actions

--animals have reasons but as humans we cannot fathom them (except by inaccurate anthropomorphism)

--animals do not rationalise their actions to themselves

--animals may rationalise their actions to themselves, but humans could never know about/comprehend any such rationalisations

or something else?  My experience is that animals have good reasons for their actions; and the more complex the animal and/or environment the more its visible (including humans), so I think I have not understood
