Publisher Description

Metamorphosis is a biological process by which an animal physically develops after birth or hatching, involving a conspicuous and relatively abrupt change in the animal's body structure through cell growth and differentiation. Some insects, amphibians, molluscs, crustaceans, Cnidarians, echinoderms and tunicates undergo metamorphosis, which is usually accompanied by a change of habitat or behavior.


Scientific usage of the term is exclusive, and is not applied to general aspects of cell growth, including rapid growth spurts. References to "metamorphosis" in mammals are imprecise and only colloquial, but historically idealist ideas of transformation and monadology, as in Goethe's Metamorphosis of Plants, influenced the development of ideas of evolution.

    this kafka guy

    the feeling of abandonment after your role is finished is a true feeling that many are afraid of, i’m sure kafka went through something similar

    Hit too close to home

    One of those reads that makes you realize that time is an illusion and people have struggled with the same problems for decades and centuries and so on. Super relatable even to this day.

    Quick Read. Worth It

    Interesting. Worth the time it took to read. Which wasn’t much.
