Whenever I see a baby or toddler or kid wrapped up in a blanket, cocooned in a stroller, docile and passive, generally sucking on a bottle, I always imagine a future not unlike the Matrix. It's the same vision that MMOs and headsets and power sleds come from, where walking is completely erased from our consciousness, and even at the earliest stages of development, every person is encased in a plastic shell.

I wonder how snails got that way, and I wonder if I'm seeing that same sort of evolution at work here.
