"So I’m thinking of trying live birth in the tsetse fly.”

"What? Why? What’s wrong with laying eggs like all the other insects?"

"I don’t know, it just seems so inefficient. You go to all the trouble of making eggs, and then most of them just get squished or frozen or eaten for dinner before they can even develop. Why not just pop out a whole larva once a week and then be done with it?"

"Once a week?”

"Well, yeah, they’ve got to keep up with the egg-layers somehow."

"Gross, evolution."

"Miraculous, you mean."

The ocean is full of things that would like to kill you. And other things that would ignore or not understand you, and then eventually kill you. Because they do not have the same understanding or valuation of life and death as humans. There are still other things that you would probably kill, simply because you think they are beautiful, and you want to possess beautiful things because you believe that beauty and sentience are mutually exclusive.
