Our skins

feel like
the skins of snakes.
We are one of only two
mammals without fur.

This evolutionary
accident was our
Original Sin.

The other furless mammal
is The Naked Mole-rat
(Heterocephalus glaber,
also known as the Sand Puppy.
It is a blind and burrowing rodent
native to parts of East Africa,
and is remarkable also
for being the only mammal
with a social structure identical to that
of several species of ants.

Many control-enamoured
members of our species
(politicians, militarists, sociologists,
social psychologists, philosophers
and religious leaders - to name but a few)
would like to organise us
more "eusocially"

- and they are slowly
attaining their goal.
