A tiny ground slug slithered along the ground. It was, to anthropomorphise a bit, deep in thought. It might have been thinking about how humans have it so much better off, but it wasn't. Its brain was so small that it could fit inside one of Earth's Volkswagen Beetles and still have room to stretch its legs. Therefore, it had no concept of "humans", or "have", or "it", or, for that matter, any of the other words in the above sentence. What it was thinking about, so to speak, was: "splut".
It slithered along further. Presently a large shadow was cast on the ground around the slug. The shadow slowly decreased in size, until a "splut" sound was heard. The slug didn't hear it. It didn't have ears. Also, it was no longer alive.
