What if a bug walked up to you on his six legs and said, "Good evening [your name here], I think you know more than you're letting on," and then he walked away and you never saw him again? You could have squished him with your big right foot, but you didn't. What if a bug did that and then you never told anyone? Would you think about it a lot? Would you be tempted to write a book about it? You might sell a few. But bugs don't do that, do they? As far as we know, anyway. As far as we know, bugs don't talk, and they don't even think, perhaps. Maybe they don't communicate with each other at all. We think they probably do, but maybe they don't. What about that? What if they are noncommunicative beings who don't really care about us at all? Would you think on that for a long time and let me know?

Because I think you know more than you are letting on.
