On submerged, open shore,
investigating its environment.
If what attracts its curiosity
reveals camouflaged hostility,
it quickly swims away.
An alien intelligence engaged in exploration
might view Earth as poisonous and stinging,
and steer clear, leaving us alone.
The quickest way for me to learn something new is to first understand why I'd like to learn it.
