I walked by a large unshelled garden snail.
On a pebbled pathway we were.
I noticed the snail.
The snail gave no noticeable indication of my existence.
It (the snail) ‘existed’ for me.
I, however, suspect that I do not ‘exist’ for the snail . . .
. . . unless I choose to interact with it at a speed and a level of sensation that its biology can detect.
The moment I am ‘detected,’
I ‘pop’ into existence.
Is that not how this works?
