Thumbs

Dreamed 1989/6/12 by Chris Wayan

Sketch of a dream: thumbs have gone soft and gooey.


Everywhere on the planet, hands have gone rubbery and soft... as stretchable as latex gloves full of water.

Not just human hands: animals too--any grasping limb's affected.

We mold our rubber paws idly, curiously, into strange shapes.

I meet some animal people, recently evolved beings, with furry, tailed bodies. Their forepaws are clever but still rather stubby-fingered.

I advise them "Be sure to make opposable thumbs--good hands are a huge advantage. Be careful--we don't know when this period of fluidity will end! Don't get frozen into a bad design."

Hmm. I wonder if that applies to any of my recent changes?
