A spider feels the universe through its legs, which touch the key strands of its web. It knows when it’s raining, or when food is available. It doesn’t think to itself! “That’s not a fly on the web. That’s rain,” Yet it knows. The spider doesn’t deliberate about what kind of fly it would like to eat or criticize the rain for trying to deceive it. It does what it does, effortlessly and spontaneously.
