This is a real SEM image of a Mayfly larvae. This is something that is real. Imagine it six foot tall. It should be easy to imagine, the image is high resolution.
We treat these things as insignificant lesser beings. Try saying that to it face to face. It is more frightening than any fictional character and it's REAL.
haha hand goes squash
i punch that bug in the face what is it going to do brush me gently ?
I hate starwars fags
>We are a tapestry woven of vortessence. It is the same for you if only you would see it.
If these things were 100ft tall we would stall dominate them like all life. We are the apex predators of the planet.
>two pairs of lateral ocelli
the one I found has one pair of compound eyes.
ist it real?

I studied them for a research project. They just autistically zipped back and forth between two spots in the big water tray we put them in to count them and every few minutes one got eaten by the (much cooler) dragonfly larvae.
Dude it's an insect, chill. It's the one of the closest things you can get to a biological robot. If it were 6 feet tall it'd just be an extremely dumb animal with a spooky face.
Homonomous metamerism on a face freaks people out because they can’t easily imagine what each segment does or why the mouth is made out of legs
It gets easier when you realize your mouth is made out of gills
>your mouth is made out of gills
This always fascinated the fuck out of me, and also made me realize alien designers are lazy.
>your mouth is made out of gills
It's what? I thought our embryonic gills were on our necks when they briefly manifested during development.
Your mouth is made out of gills. It is what it sounds like. They don't briefly manifest, the gills show up and then they're restructured into other things. Such as your jaws and the larynx. You're a segmented creature like a bug, just less primitive.
>We treat these things as insignificant lesser beings.
They’re defeated by a piece of plastic that can swing fast, OP. Why should we see them as anything more than lesser beings from our perspective?
>ooOOoOOoooo, the small, weak insect looks scary when you zoom in on its face! we should fear them!
Both you or I could walk over one of these things on the sidewalk one day and potentially not even notice that we killed something. If I tried telling a mayfly that it was weak or insignificant to it’s face it would probably fly away because it thought my breath stank before doing anything that could legitimately strike me with fear. I’m not sure these things even speak a human language, OP. I could speak a little Chinese to it, even, (Qù nǐ mā de fúyóu) and yet it still wouldn’t do shit.

"not sure"? are you really that fucking stupid?
It basically looks like some lazy fuck just mashed a load of body parts together to make a CGI monster. The only thing which marks it as a real animal rather than shitty creature design is that it doesn't have a vertebrate jaw.
looks like a Spore animal
You got a nice mustache but a shitty beard. Just shave the beard and go mustache only or shave both.
it's basically a machine, you can say whatever you want to its face
it's also a glorified velvet worm
