[superquote] In “Crickets, Bats, Cats, and Chaos,” doctor and scientist Lewis Thomas struggles to solve the riddle of human uniqueness by examining the difference between us and the creatures around us.
Bats and people
Simple animals, like crickets, work according to predictable rules: if X happens, then, with a reasonable degree of certainty, a cricket will do Y. As Thomas puts it, a cricket is basic enough “to seem predictable,” but, under bizarre circumstances, its system can be “thrown into chaos” (491). When a cricket detects the sonar of a bat about to attack it, the disturbance in the basic cause and effect functioning of the cricket’s mind creates uncertainty, making its specific response unpredictable.
