One benefit to reading The Ancestor’s Tale


Is that you run into writers and bloggers using references to the animals and phenomena that you read about in The Ancestor’s Tale. And you say how weird. And the third time you get the impression you’re part of some greater purpose and maybe you should have your palm read or tell the world or try to talk to a nematode worm by looking at it and rapidly clenching your sphichters. Unleash the power cosmic.

Then you remember it is a 700 page book about all life on earth.

And they are asking you to leave the aquarium.

And maybe your narcissism takes a hit.

And that’s helpful.
