Remember Bhakti from the first game? He was Vanille’s little robot companion.
He appears in Lightning Returns, requesting special oil so he could work to his full potential again. Now that he’s fully functional, he can open the door to a chamber where he says his friends are waiting for him. He said they’ve been waiting for him for a very long time, and Lightning assumes he’s talking about other robots.
These friends were actually humans, and they’ve long since perished. It broke my heart to see Bhakti talking to their skeletons as if they were machines who could easily be good as new again if he just found the right parts to repair them with.
babies are naturally able to swim hello they just spent nine moths in amiotic fluid this is instinctive so no, parent is not shitty, parent is re-enforcing baby’s natural instinctive behaviour.
parent is good for doing this because parent is basically saying “yes the behaviours you were born with are great!”
Yup, if babies are ‘taught’ (allowed) to swim before they are six weeks old, they never lose the instincts they were born with that lets them hold their head above water and hold their breath when they need to. SCIENCE, man.
What’s really cool is, humans are the only primates known to have this instinct at birth. Other ape babies would just freak out and drown. So I don’t think it comes from being in amniotic fluid for 9 months (since it’s not like they have room to actually swim in there). It’s been speculated that humans evolved in the ocean at some point, which is a really cool theory that I recommend checking out.
Also, SWIMMING BABY IS ADORABLE.
Did I ever mention I fucking love visual poetry? Because I fucking love visual poetry.
