The Oyster, in Eight Manifolds
A mollusk filters the ocean while crossing the borders of biology, art, philosophy, and food.
“In addition to its architectural aesthetics of the outside shell, the skills to become a stone, and ability to produce the pearl, the oyster is also food. Upon forcibly opening it, all that is contained within is a small ugly lump, unrecognizable as any living thing. It has no mouth, no eyes, no recognizable organs; it is just a folded chunk of organic matter.”
