What is it like to be a bat?

Q: When you think of bats, what first comes to your mind?

When I think of bats, the first thing I think of is a dark cave and a bat hanging from the ceiling upside down. What interests me the most is what they do, what is the purpose of them? Do they do anything helpful to the earth?

Q: You just spent a period of time imagining what it is like to be a bat. What did you imagine?

During my time of imagining I was a bat I imagined myself in a dark cave, hanging upside down. I imagined an interaction with other bats, some of which were fights of us screeching. I also imagined what it would be like to have human interaction, so I just imagined a silhouette coming in the cave and I flew towards it, and then other bats wizzed by me in attack, screeching. Afterwards I just was hanging in the dark again, hearing the noises of the water in the cave.

Q: During the time you were imagining, were you somewhere?

I was in a dark, wet cave. I couldn't really see anything else very clearly. I had blurred vision, perhaps from the dark. I heard other screeches that was other bats but I couldn't see them thoroughly.
