it exists but has no consciousness as we know it, we think of it as a simple lifeform but cannot put ourselves into its perceptions and interpretations of the world, to understand it we study it, dissect it, look at it’s habits and behavior, then draw a conclusion, while we can understand it from the outside we still cannot understand what it is to be the robber fly, while people can shrug and say so what, whats to know, it is the same as looking up at the stars and saying so what there’s nothing there but what we see and know of and how does that sound to another who looks up and wonders.
Now for a second let’s look at the world from the robber fly prospective;
- How vast does the world look to it from such a tiny size in comparison.
- No time exists, only light and darkness.
- No emotions to see the world the way we see it, they see it as it is.
- When they kill something to eat they do so as we do with our food, it’s not mean, or vicious, it’s simply as if they are grabbing for a fruit or vegetable, they don’t see it as alive, with feelings, or pain, same as when we bite into an apple.
If you watch this video from start to finish my favorite part is where the drop of liquid is on it’s eye, why doesn’t it remove the droplet, why doesn’t it bother it, if we as humans have something changing our view we fix it, we remove it, we even get angry at it, but the robber fly does nothing, why?
