Reflexive embryo-shaped Hat

Hat shape based on Spinoza's theory of affects

I just read a book called "looking for spinoza" that is about how emotions are reflections of body states. The whole body and every organ in it is based on the same basic embryo-shaped blue print. A kidney is shaped like a brain is shaped like an embryo is shaped like and ear is shaped like a nostril. And the functions of similar parts are similar too, so the brain has a little brain in it, which has a little brain in it, which has a little.........etc. And this guy in the book was saying that people are like big springs of reflexiveness that store impressions of the world. So I was thinking we need a hat to make this clear to people.

This hat would fit on the head like one of those streamlined bicycle helmets, but it would be shaped like an embryo -- like a person curled up in fetal position, with the head in the front over the forehead and the but in the back, and the legs bent up around the ears where the temporal lobes are, but the head of the embryo shape, which would cover the top of the person's forhead, would be shaped like another smaller embryo and the head of that embryo would be shaped like another smaller embryo etc etc.

You could wear this on the subway and always get a seat to yourself.

       I haven't laughed so hard at an idea in ages. Bun.

       Firstly, would the hat be transparent, so that the inner workings would be visable, and in movement? +   

       And secondly, if someone hasn't already asked you this, what does the "H" stand for anyway? (When I get really, really mad, It's "jesusfuckingchrist", making the "H" seem outta place. Just wanted to know.)

       Herbert, of course.

       Hmm, hadn't thought about the transparancy, it might work.   

       That isn't and "H" it's an "A" but it's really big so you can't see the top of it. It stands for ANTI.
