That is a very profound statement, God.

Is there some subtle kind of meaning that you wish us lowly ones to grasp here?
“How can a bird that is born for joy
Sit in a cage and sing?”
― William Blake


“Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die”
― William Blake, Songs of Innocence and of Experience

Insects are animals as well so we can simplify it to animals are alive

I think that this is actually the first time I have disagreed with you on something.
I can be quite ignorant when it comes to well most things so I had to google it.
You are correct. .. not that I had to tell you that. But I needed to confirm it.
By the way, humans are animals too but then we know this, don't we?
We affirm it often.

I wouldn't have thought of insects as being in the same classification as animals though.

'Animal' comes from 'anime'--that which moves.

Maybe because of how small they are but the insect population comprises 98 per cent of the
entire animal kingdom and so what they lack in size they more than make up for in numbers
