Diagrams I have seen of the `five kingdoms' often use the hand as a
graphic device, for obvious reasons. It does seem to give nature a
sense of intention, purpose, even craftsmanship.

The fifth kingdom (`little pinkie') does seem quite curious. Has anyone
thoughts about the relationship between protoctista and queer theory?
(both assert an identity that lies in between established catetories).
