On humans

Day 66. 130 pages, 64,703 words.

Well, after the excellent resurgence of the Rogue One comments discussion, I feel like I’ve already written a solid blog post for today. It’s been a while, so I figured I would write out another entry for the aki’Pedia instead.

And so here it is. I give you: The human race.

The human race is a common and widespread species. They are the sixth and final member-species of the Six Species alliance. They are known for their small stature, aggression, imagination and the fur on the tops of their heads.

Human beings are classified as conditionally reasoning non-sentient by official Molran standards and measures. This means that they are capable of flawlessly replicating and communicating the illusion of sentience – often for the course of an entire lifetime – but are not technically self-aware.

I had to cut it short because I was getting too insulting. Still, there’s more there, and hopefully interesting.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy. https://hatboy.blog/2013/12/17/metalude-who-are-creepy-and-hatboy/
