Other beings I'd like to understand from the inside: women, lesbians, nuns, seasoned warriors, hit men, the Dalai Lama, my daughter's rabbit, an ET, Koko the gorilla, fat people, little people, blacks, a dictator, my friends and family, Stephen Hawking, a humpback whale, the blind, an SI, an AI, ....
