According to the dictionary, the word metamorphosis as an allegory is a change of the form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one, by natural or supernatural means.
By the way, have you seen the reverse process, butterflies changing into caterpillars? My friend tells me it’s happening at his office. In fact he says that always has been the case with the “aliens from outer space ” in his office. When they first arrived they were butterflies, then through ‘reverse metamorphosis’ they all turn into caterpillars, he says.
Should I believe what he is saying? I just don’t know what he is talking about. Or do I?
