Organic is an important descriptive term in the contemporary coffee world. An organically-grown coffee must be certified by an international agency as having been grown without synthetic chemical fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Somewhat lower yields and the considerable cost of the certification process account for the higher prices demanded for many organic coffees.

"The ability to speak does not make you intelligent."
Qui-Gon Jinn to Jar Jar Binks

Sentience was the ability to think intelligently.

Contents

Classification

A sentient was a being with the ability to think intelligently, commonly determined by the being's ability to speak, manipulate tools, and reason. Species that lacked this ability were classified as non-sentient, or sometimes as sub-sentient.[1] Species that appeared to have emerging sentience were classified as semi-sentient. These included species that had very primitive capabilities to manipulate tools, use language, and/or solve problems. Examples included the Arkanian dragon, the Bafforr tree, and the Darkstaff.

History

An Annual Mid-Rim Domesticated Sub-Sentient Show was held for non-sentient creatures.[1] The Galactic Empire would often recategorize sentient species such as the Wookiees as non-sentient, allowing it to enslave them without formally violating the laws protecting sentient beings from such abuse.

Behind the scenes

The term sentient is technically incorrect for this usage, instead referring to any being with the capacity to feel sensations, such as pain; thus, most animals are sentient. More correct terms include sapient and sophont.

Sentient comes from the Latin word sentire, meaning "to feel."
