A love affair that was never quite the same.
Its majestic head and legs, its bright green and yellow, its beautiful stripes woven together, its red, white and blue.
A beautiful thing, but a terrible thing.
A horrible thing.
An unwanted and painful creature.
The Zebra is an animal that was created by the Dutch scientist Bertrand Russell to represent the human condition.
And it was a creature that was born to endure and survive.
Russell, the founder of evolutionary biology, was born in 1875 in Amsterdam.
He came to the Netherlands in the late 19th century to study botany and medicine and was soon appointed professor of botany at the University of Leiden.
He became one of the world’s leading scientists in the field of animal behaviour and physiology.
He went on to write a book on evolution called The Theory of Animals, and became one the most influential thinkers of his time.
Russell was not the only scientist who came to love animals.
In the 20th century, German scientists came to realise that animals are not animals.
The idea of animals as creatures was not part of their scientific understanding of biology.
Russell believed that animals were not organisms, but he did not think animals were creatures.
Russell’s theories were not confined to biology.
His ideas were extended to psychology and other fields.
The first animal to have a theory of evolution was the tiger.
This idea, developed in the 1930s, came to dominate the field.
This was a radical new view, which Russell described as a ‘radical and radical change in our understanding of nature’.
Russell believed the tiger had a theory about how life evolved.
And that the tiger was a species.
But Russell’s ideas had the opposite effect.
The tiger did not believe in evolution.
It did not have a scientific understanding, so it could not prove that animals and humans were the same species.
Russell thought the idea of evolution had to be ‘taught’.
It had to become part of the human psyche.
He believed that by teaching this new theory, the tiger would be taught to be afraid of humans, and he would eventually be taught the value of kindness and understanding.
It took the tiger only about 30 years to realise it was not an intelligent animal, and the first tiger cub born in captivity died shortly after birth.
Russell would have been proud of the first animal that could be taught how to think and act, but it took him 30 years, at least, to realise he had made a colossal mistake.
Russell and the tiger became a terrible symbol of a fundamental misunderstanding of evolution.
The history of evolution The zebralight has a long and colourful history.
The term was coined by the late French zoologist Georges Lemaître in 1929.
In his book The Zebralights, Lema�tre proposed that an animal had evolved to be a kind of animal, a kind that is a little like a human.
It evolved to have an appetite for food, a sense of smell, a pair of ears, a head, claws and teeth.
The word zebra derives from the Greek word zebros, meaning ‘dog’ or ‘tiger’.
It means the most primitive form of animals, but these were the very animals that Russell was studying.
Russell had studied a number of zebra species over the course of his career.
He studied the zebroles at the Natural History Museum in London, where he collected specimens.
The museum acquired them from zoological collections in Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Leiden, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic and Poland.
The zoo collected many of the zabros and then transported them to Liverpool for a second study, where Russell spent five years studying them.
Russell found that some of the animals had a particular way of seeing, but that the rest of them were more or less equally ‘human’ in appearance.
Russell also noticed that the zerbals had a kind and gentle temperament, with a ‘happy’ disposition and an ‘enthusiastic’ disposition.
They were very sociable, with many of them going into groups and sharing food.
Russell said he did find that the animals were ‘more human’ than the other zebra types.
But these differences were not explained away by the fact that some animals were born in cages and that Russell could not see any of the characteristics of these animals.
Russell wrote: The zerbalferes [Zebra] are, as a rule, very simple animals, with no special features to distinguish them from other zebra.
These characteristics have been noticed only by one or two zoologists, and not by any of us who have studied the animals, for they are only apparent in a few animals.
There are two things that can be said about this observation: One, there is no reason to suppose that the animal can be regarded as having any special character, or to suppose any particular degree of mental ability, in relation to the
