Appetite is a craving that seeks
an object; so saying, it is a
realising affection, so saying,
a subject act, wherein the object is known.
Animal life forms are appetitive
in whose moved affections are objects
subject realised, the prime affection
being that for life - translated to self-
preservation, whereby the animal
is conscious of itself in all circumstances
to project a state of ‘that which is’
achieved, where the realising subject
finds stillness, be it ant, or rat, or tiger,
be it a fly or bacterium, finds surcease
in the world that is tailored for it,
a microcosm of the infinite.
