Each living being, whether a simple bacterium or a complex primate, can only perceive organisms inferior to it. Living beings, however, will continuously fail to comprehend the existence of more superior forms of life. We may understand some of the trends in which more superior life entities inflict their actions upon us through physics and chemistry, but we will never fathom the actual existence of such creatures. Every living species has evolved to perceive itself, through conscious or non-conscious methods, as the epitome of the life form, which is a necessity for the evolutionary process. A seemingly disgusting parasite thinks of itself and of its own species exactly what I or you would think of ourselves or of our own species.
