Re: Insect psychology
It is difficult to empathise with creatures of a dimension not easily observed. When humans are viewed with the aid of sensory enhancing technologies, their appearance often invokes horror. Is this because their form is so unlike ours? We know empathy is possible between fishmoths, carpetsharks and other similar sized lifeforms, for these creatures contain thysanuramorphic traits that imply character and personality. The majority of human forms are so alien that we struggle to see any silverfish trait at all.
Simon Lawrence is consumed by the inconsequential details of his own home in which thoughts or perceptions are presented without regard for logical sequences. Structure and distinctions between various levels of reality create an interior monologue. Free association of objects and images show a continuous flow of ideas that move forward by ones own knowledge and perception; or stand still.
