God and the Machine
Follow Patheos Catholic:
Now I’m feeling very, very guilty about all the minifig heads I’ve popped off, all the limbs I’ve torn asunder, over these many years.
I just showed this to my Lego-obsessed five-year-old, who laughed and laughed and laughed and then asked why they weren’t showing the brain, too. I have a feeling there are going to be some gratuitously disassembled Lego figures in my future.
Hm… no muscles. That explains why I have to do all the work of moving them around, but also why they’re able to hold a pose so long without complaining. I’ve always wondered about that.
@KML: clearly, the brain is not shown because it’s INSIDE the skull. You’ll just have to cut through another layer of plastic.
I sat through 80% of Lego: The Adventures of Clutch Powers and I can tell you that brains never entered into it even once.
Even non-rational creatures (e.g., lizards, birds, politicians) have brains, which serve the function of cooling the blood, as Aristotle taught us. I did not mean to imply that Legos have any intellect or rationality. I apologize for my lack of clarity.
If they don’t have brains or muscles, how do they get from the bin to the middle of the floor, right where I need to walk in the middle of the night. Hm?
Ha! My bruised feet can attest to that truism.
