This was originally posted on the Corporeal Fantasy web site. I will be salvaging what is on there as it winds down and is eventually closed down next year. The central message is that nature has overshot the mark, by creating a creature with an excess of consciousness — namely man. As such, when an animal is happy, it is that happiness, and when it is frightened, it is the fear.
