Evolution seems to love a star. There are starfish, of course, little and big.
And succulent plants that look like trippy stacks of stars.
And of course dozens of flowers come in this shape. Radial symmetry rather than bilateral.
What if, for some peculiar but convincing reason (Hello Isaac Asimov! Howdee Octavia Butler! Greetings, Kim Stanley Robinson!), humans came to life along radial lines instead of our bilateral ones?
What would be our center? Would our points be be feet or hands? Would we cartwheel along in the tide?
