White Spotted Jellyfish

Guardian: Xie Ling

Phyllorhiza punctata

One day in the future we will be able to have holidays where you don’t just go somewhere different, you can become someone different. I’d like to have a holiday as a White Spotted Jellyfish. They don’t have to worry about hunting, they just float in the currents and let food bump into them. They don’t need much food anyway because they have symbiotic algae inside them and even if life became difficult they can’t worry because they have no central nervous system, no way to store memories, they live floating in the moment, soaking in the sun and drinking up the easy life.
