Invertebrate biocosmology Part II

An inter-dimensional caterpillar in it’s natural habitat.  Whilst the adult Dot Moth Melanchra persicariae largely resides within the bounds of ‘our’ four yawn-inspiring dimensions of space and time, in its larval form it spends significant periods of its existence wandering between the extra ten/eleven (argue amongst yourselves) spacetime dimensions.  This occupation of inter-dimensional subspace, the space between spaces if you will, is thought to allow the attractive, if highly strung, little caterpillar to avoid predation, take advantage of bountiful but unfathomably widespread food sources, and to chill the f**k out.  Isn't nature amazing?!
