Because he has no mother, he has never tasted milk. Because he has neither brother nor sister, he has no one to play with. Having no house to live in, he cannot find a crib. Since he has no nanny, he has never cried. There is no civilization, so he cannot find toys. Since there is no point of reference, he doesn't know a self He has never heard spoken language, so he has never experienced fear. The child walks in every direction, but does not come across anything. He sits down slowly on the ground.

Dreamlike clouds of many colors float across the sky. In the place where iron birds croak, The instantaneously born child can find no name. Because he has no father, the child has no family line.

Since there is no point of reference, he doesn't know a self He has never heard spoken language, so he has never experienced fear.
