    THEY'RE MADE OUT OF MEAT

    by Terry Bisson

    "They're made out of meat."

    "Meat?"

    "Meat. They're made out of meat."

    "Meat?"

    "There's no doubt about it. We picked up several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, and probed them all the way through. They're completely meat."

    "That's impossible. What about the radio signals? The messages to the stars?"

    "They use the radio waves to talk, but the signals don't come from them. The signals come from machines."

    "So who made the machines? That's who we want to contact."

    "They made the machines. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Meat made the machines."

    "That's ridiculous. How can meat make a machine? You're asking me to believe in sentient meat."

    "I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. These creatures are the only sentient race in that sector and they're made out of meat."

    "Maybe they're like the orfolei. You know, a carbon-based intelligence that goes through a meat stage."

    "Nope. They're born meat and they die meat. We studied them for several of their life spans, which didn't take long. Do you have any idea what's the life span of meat?"

    "Spare me. Okay, maybe they're only part meat. You know, like the weddilei. A meat head with an electron plasma brain inside."

    "Nope. We thought of that, since they do have meat heads, like the weddilei. But I told you, we probed them. They're meat all the way through."

    "No brain?"

    "Oh, there's a brain all right. It's just that the brain is made out of meat! That's what I've been trying to tell you."

    "So ... what does the thinking?"

    "You're not understanding, are you? You're refusing to deal with what I'm telling you. The brain does the thinking. The meat."

    "Thinking meat! You're asking me to believe in thinking meat!"

    <much more>

    "A dream to meat! How strangely appropriate, that we should be meat's dream."
    Hillarious!!! I don't know if I'll ever think of myself the same way again!

          Good one and my doc is right; he says each of us basically are just some food processing plants (factories).

              Right, but that’s a necessary part of the food assortment isn’t it? It helps processing fatty food in the food plant.

                I heard theres a direct correlation to the amount of whale and reindeer meat consumed.

                      And the meat is made into tubes! Life is sort of the competition of the meattubes with each tube trying to out-swallow and out-shout every other tube.

                          It’s strange actually. Even plants have this behaviour. Looks like the one to the right on the image below is a bit “out-shouted” though.
