‘Let’s Eat’ By Alex G

We as humans are able to study mice through glass, watching as they traverse through mazes for cheesey rewards. We love to align the findings of these studies with Man, equating these two brains to one another. Of Mice and Men, who is smarter? Many say Man, but I ask you this vital question. Who is the fool? The man watching a Mouse run around in circles, or the mouse who eats for free? We think we are Apex predators. That there are no Hawks above, with Talons fit for Men. This could not be further from the truth. In The World Beyond our own exists a class of predator we couldn’t fathom, and it’s where this story takes place.
