He could start telling stories to Ruby, and then she might not have as much nightmares as she already has. Ivan could remember who he was and how he acted like himself. He could try to remember why the humans took him away from his family. This is why lvan should remember of his history of when he was small.
I think Ivan is feeling just like Ruby when their parents got taken away. He starts remembering what happens and knows how it feels when that happened to Ruby. Now, he wants her life to be happy.

I think that Ivan's perception changes when he remember his own story because Ivan's family got killed by humans so now he thinks that some humans are dangerous. It is important for Ivan to remember his name and his life as a baby gorilla because his family named him Ivan so that when his parents are killed, he has something to remember his family. His life as a baby gorilla was very sad because he lost his family.
