Rationalization can extend beyond human sense making

If an ape participates in a clinical trial for producing vaccines, for both non-human primates and humans, and undergoes a lot of suffering in the process, would she be able to find meaning in her suffering? Possibly not. Viktor Frankl argues that similarly, people are sometimes unable to find meaning in their own suffering, meaning which might be self-evident for a creature evolved beyond the human.
