I am currently reading the Myth of Sisyphus and I came across the following:
All thoughts are anthropomorphic
Prior to reading this, I had no idea what "anthropomorphic" meant. However, I looked up the definition and it seems to vary because of it's similarity to the word personification. Before this quote, he writes:
The mind's deepest desire, even in its most elaborate operations, parallels man's unconscious feelings in the face of his universe: it is an insistence upon familiarity, an appetite for clarity. Understanding the world for a man is reducing it to the human, stamping it with his seal. The cat's universe is not the universe of the ant-hill.
I believe he is trying to make the point that our perspective of the universe is related to who we are. For example, if you are a human then you will see the universe through the eyes of the human and therefore, "the cat's universe is not the universe of the ant-hill". When he says "All thoughts are anthropomorphic", what I think he means is that all the thoughts are given some human traits or characteristics so that they make sense to humans. Therefore, the universe to a cat will be in terms of the cat's characteristics/traits.
Question: Is my interpretation reasonable, is there an accepted interpretation or have I missed the point completely?
