Bitter Cat Tongue

See the darkness? Can you make it out? Perhaps an analogy.. handtwists, and then things resolve into .. kittens, tiny splotchesof black, pink tongues moving from the small body, drinking humansadness... a thing of beauty...

At Zets tonight, I had a rather amazing thing happen. I was talkingwith N for most of the gathering, perhaps 2 or 3 hours, chewing onthe ability to reduce all behavior to responses to selective pressures..and, while it wasn't exactly an argument, I feel nontheless that I lostthe battle :) This hasn't happened for years -- for a layperson, I think Iknow an awful lot about natural selection, a fair amount about genetics, anda good amount about the various other things that go into the field. Still,as her focus/degree intent is in evolutionary psychology, it's not a completesurprise. It was an amazing conversation. She's an amazing person. In response,I gave her some of my debate strategies that I don't tend to pass out to peopleall over..
