I like this very, very, very much. Overthinking about this topic has wasted hours; thinking about it has been fairly profitable. You can’t explain choice, philosophy, or ethics very well even to a very alert frog or preverbal ape, and without writing your explanation down, whatever is explained even to a preliterate genius will be 99% lost in a generation or two. I especially like “retrograde” and its context. Flies (ahem) may “love” life, but I doubt that they know they do. Very fine, from my perspective. More like this please, every once in a while.
