I Thought I Was a Butterfly, But Maybe I’m Still Goo

Did you know that there is a time during the process of a caterpillar becoming a butterfly in the chrysalis that the caterpillar’s body is turned into goo?


It is.


When it is being totally transformed and remade into a totally different-looking and different-acting creature, it has to be completely melted and re-formed.¬† It sounds kind of gross, doesn’t it?


But when you think about it, you know it has to be true.

For a worm-like creature with no wings and lots of legs and no resemblance to a beautiful butterfly to be changed into one is going to take a total meltdown of all of its parts to be molded into the new creature.

The caterpillar has to be turned into goo.

I have thought I was already a butterfly. But maybe I’m still goo.
