Humans try to move their ear flaps just like cats — 1 Comment

  1. I don’t know how common it is, but when I was young I could feel my ear muscles activate occasionally and try to turn toward a sound. It felt quite strong at times, but it apparently faded away as the years wore on. I have seen some people move their ears on purpose… in fact I think I could move my own ever so slightly, but again that was very long ago. As I try now I can flex some muscles around there a little but seems like just scalp muscles. Maybe that’s what they are, but I can’t move my ears anymore. So maybe they aren’t completely vestigial, just so diminished and weak that they are gone for the most part.

    Incidentally, I’ve been wondering if anyone at all ever reads my comments on here. I know I’m boring and I’m sorry for that, but if no one ever reads these things I may stop. It feels like I’m a lunatic talking to myself. Perhaps this stupid comment is as good a time as any to say this will be my last one. I feel like an idiot. I enjoy reading these articles and am compelled to comment, but maybe I’m not adding anything to the topics. Again, sorry, if anyone is out there, and if not that’s a shame because Michael is interesting and deserves readership. I just wonder where everyone is…
