Julian Assange writes this in his philosophical blog: "Hence we come to the following remarkable conclusion. You share

This lobster . . . . is a simple creature, and it controls homeostasis. It controls appetite and activity and Youhave no direct control over it. All you can do is move it from place to place and buy different things for it to eat. Otherwise you have less control over it than it has over you because it
is able to influence your feelings of reward, temperature, hunger and activity."
Arthropod to the core, Julian Assange was born when the Sun was in Cancer the Crab, the first of the three water signs. In addition, at the time of his birth the moon was just above the horizon, in Scorpio, and he has the pale fleshy face typical of people born with the moon rising. All three primary horoscopic influences, then, are with the Zodiac's two arthropods: the most numerous phylum on Earth, making up more than 80% of all described living animal species, including all insects and crustaceans, while the third water sign, Pisces, has as its totem the most numerous of the vertebrates, the fish. The vast preponderance of life on the planet is assigned to the water signs, and so the zodiac gives the last word to primitive biological instinct and the rudimentary, brainless nervous systems, rather than to the rational faculties.
'The point' comes when feelings demand it. It can only be rationalized from the axioms of primitive emotion. If these axioms are weak due to decalibration by civilization, 'the point' eludes us. If they are strong, we pursue our goals with passion and vigor. from Assange's blog
