I had this realization the other day: I am a deer (or perhaps a moose) in human form. If I were walking down the street in my true form, would a cop presume to have any lawful claim over me? Would I be subject to laws of jaywalking or trespass on private property? So why just because I have two legs and appear to be human?

Of course, that could work the other way too, especially out of urban areas where a farmer or rancher wouldn't think twice of shooting a deer eating his vegetables or trees. But still, thinking this way can help one see how free or not he really is.
