What is the source of our obsession with half-humans? Why do we still, in our modern technological age, find ourselves fascinated by mermaids and their ilk?
Perhaps it is a recognition of our own divided nature. For all our wit and courage, our striving, stargazing, and philosophizing, we are still made of flesh, still have our animal nature -- and we need to remember that to live in our own skins. But we also yearn to escape our bodies' limitations. Who, watching our animal cousins, hasn't longed to be able to run like a horse, swim like a dolphin, soar like an eagle? Who wouldn't want to slip away, for a time at least, from the cares and troubles that bind us as humans and feel wild and free once more?
