It’s really cool the way human beings make tools that mimic what their own bodies can do. We invented cups and bowls to be like our hands and telescopes to be like our eyes and ladders to be like our legs. From a broad perspective, our tools look a lot like us, you know? I bet if you were an alien visiting Earth, you would think it was all very adorable, the way our cars look like us and our houses look like us. We decided, as a species, that our bodies aren’t good enough, so we make things that are like-our-bodies-but-better. It’s really cute. Almost like legos. Here’s a very strange creature that uses its environment to recreate itself.
Can you imagine what the tools of other creatures might look like? If a jellyfish decided it wanted to do something beyond its body, and it needed a tool to do it, what would that tool look like? It wouldn’t look like human hands or human eyes.
There could be an entire ocean littered with jellyfish cutlery and jellyfish furniture, all of it looking very jellyfish-ish and adorable.
