my apologies to the scientists whose work i have mangled and anthropomorphized in the exact way they said not to. once again, read the whole thing for free here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/337334393_An_alternative_hypothesis_for_the_evolution_of_same-sex_sexual_behaviour_in_animals
"If any other trait had been observed in such a diverse array of taxa as [same-sex sexual behaviour], it likely would be widely accepted that the trait was an ancestral condition present in some of the earliest animal clades."
scientists: "In considering the ideas presented here, we have grappled with how to not exclude important human contexts while also not conflating human sexuality with sexual behaviours seen in other animal taxa"

You ever notice how Yoda's speech patterns in Empire and Jedi sound really naturalistic even with the inverted sentence structure, while in the prequel trilogy and every other time he's appeared his speech always sounds kind of stilted and wrong and harder to follow?
That's because a linguist was brought on to consult on the script treatment in the OT and to help make sure Yoda's sentences were inverted "properly" on the phrase level to maintain intelligibility. This did not happen in the prequels.
"The Book of Endless History is a deep dream of sorts — an infinite encyclopedia produced by an AI trained on the collective works of Jorge Luis Borges and Italo Calvino. It is an experiment in narrative generation and machine learning."
My issue with Rogue One is, where are all the Bothans? I was promised MANY BOTHANS.
