YOU don't feel anything when looking at insects, and you therefore conclude that ALL HUMANS have a hard time relating to them. What about everyone who rushed to see "Microcosmos" then? I think you're over-generalizing.

Oh, and by the way, it's not because something isn't very good that it's not art. Art is a pretty liberal concept. So clamoring for a dearth of macro masterpieces, yes, I could understand that. But it's not for lack of art.
