But the spider lives on instinct, it has no self- relfection like we do !
Do you call the entity that constantly participates the random changing
environment the human !? I suppose you do, like I do, but I don 't
think we stay that the " same " in the same context as you provide
for the spider though !
Keeping hold of the ' you ' inside you all the time could be a
dangerous thing to do ! Humans must ride the rhythm of the
changing tide. The spider remains the spider, but the human
remains not the human.
We are consumer, parent, lover, father, son, working boy,
taxpayer, cardriver...we must be ( in context) offender,
thief, transgressor, breaker of rules...we must be polite,
angry, sweet, delightful, sad, happy...we must be tempe-
remental and sometimes we must show remorse, restrain,
sarrow, pity...show me the ' real ' human !?
