In jackal we believe that such TO-BE-STATEMENTS refer to a reality outside.
In giraffe we hear and understand them as an alienated form of communication about feelings, needs and requests of a speaker. The person tells us what they feel and what they would like or what they are thankful for.

So the verb “to be” does not reflect the fact that life is constantly changing, life is a process, it is not static.
