The bear is a wild animal, a predator and hostile to man. Yet somewhere in the beginning of the 20th century someone caught the idea of making a cuddly toy out of it. Perhaps that's why in our time, the bear is no longer a threat but a museum-piece and so it seems that we are in need of new natural enemies to conquer.
So what are the 'new' threats? What are we afraid of? It's MICROBES, VIRUSES and FAT CELLS!
Expanded a million times, this is what you get:
"There is an "invisible" universe out there filled with very small things that can do incredible damage to much bigger things"
