I don't know why, and you may consider me crazy or aberrant if you wish, but the sheer number of people on the planet gives me the creeps, the willies; I react in a similar way when splitting open a log and seeing thousands of teeming termites spill out, or overturning a large rock and seeing ants scatter, towing their white pupae. I do not react this way to individual humans (or at least rarely -- there are some undeniably creepy individuals.) Every day I see all the people zooming in all directions in cars, on bikes, on foot, in planes, on skateboards, rushing madly around their anthill. It makes me want to hide deep in the woods.
