There is something about the idea of mutants that pricks my curiosity. I watched X-Men last night, and it always prompts me to think about my own anthropocentricity.
I eat meat. I treat animals as lesser beings than I treat myself.
And how would my beliefs change if a new species evolved, or mutated, from my own? One that was more conscious, more powerful. Would I consider it unjust if I was treated by them the same way I treat 'lesser' beings right now?
I don't think I am ready for the answers yet. But there is definitely something there to stay curious about.
