Id, ego, superego

Like the soul, an anatomist can not tell you, in any body, where to find an id, ego, or superego; this is why we find it so hard to accept that rats, frogs, and beetles have ids, egos, and superegos. Even so, we accept that animals have instincts; that is the id. We accept that animals try to preserve their own lives; that is the ego. Why should we not also accept that animals bond with their own kind, and follow rules of their own? That is the superego. Freud reminds me of Hamlet when he stood with Polonius and asked, “Do you see yonder cloud that’s almost in shape of a camel?”
