there are times when I find things trippy..
and being 4AM, this is probably one of 'em..
I'm this animal, this human animal..
sure, I've got intellect, adaptive skills and survivalist versatility that put me ahead of other specialised animals..
but, in the end.. I'm an animal..
wot I find trippy..
is I'm surrounded in this city alone by 1 million other such animals..
as alien to me.. as a dog or a cat..
you'd walk around.. ponderin' over their bizarre organisational structures..
the roads, the buildings, the cars, the social order..
yet.. somehow.. I can communicate with all of 'em..
I can empathise with all of 'em..
they are others.. yet I sense they are me..
somehow.. from birth, we learn to communicate fluently with our fellow animals..
and.. by codifying our means to communicate.. which, in my case is English..
I can communicate with you humans.. on the otherside of the planet..
ok.. it all sounds obvious in the light of day..
but duuuude.. at 4AM, it's trippy..
without language.. where the hell would we be?
