Meet Zane Zeitman, a twenty-four year old who just wants to be himself. Part of Zane’s problem? His true self seems to have an uncanny ability to alter his shape just a little more than the average person. Okay, maybe a fair amount more.
Zane doesn’t believe in magic, and he’s gotten a whole degree in neuroscience just to try to figure out how he does what he does. When science offers few answers, he turns to the animal kingdom. He discovers that octopi, cuttle fish and chameleons don’t believe in magic either, and they all do the very things that he does.
Check out this wonderful TED video on shapeshifters in the real world, and you’ll begin to understand how Zane comes to terms with just being himself.
And starting September 2, you’ll be able to read his entire story.
