We admit, We are blundersome when going in reverse. Forward gears, We are light-footed and confident. Going backward, not so much. How are We supposed to know what’s back there? Perplexity leads to insecurity. And Insecurity makes Us peevish.
Nature put our eyes in the front end, so why go where We can’t see? Just seems unnatural to Us. If We want to go somewhere, We aim ourselves that way and proceed, right? Common sense.
In the Wild, animals scurry away when they see Us start backing up. We know just how they feel and how justified they are. It’s not pretty.
