I sometimes think of myself not as an individual, but as a member of a species. Just as the duck species has evolved to adapt to a certain environment, and the worm species has done the same, the human species has a certain environment and set of circumstances to which it is uniquely adapted.

This is not to say that individual humans or ducks or worms cannot thrive or be happy in different environments, but I sometimes wonder what life would be like if I were dropped into the duck's equivalent of a pond or a worm's equivalent of soil.
