How does the relationship between number, as the signifier, and quantity, as the signified, reach “the most perfect and beautiful balance” which is mutually equal? When an enormous group of the same species suddenly appear in a regular area, it creates certain realistic sense of presence no matter it is a photoshopped image, a special effect in a movie, an instinctive reaction, or an indirect artificial poisoning. As long as the quantity surpasses our pre-existing understanding, it challenges “the pure beauty of infinity” celebrated by the poet Hsu Chi-Mo for that the relationship between number and quantity becomes socialized. It is no longer pure and it produces fear. In The Birds, a horror movie by Alfred Hitchcock, it introduces the power of reversal. Within the repetitive struggles in the relationship between human beings and other species, the extremely tiny species fight back with the help of continuous mutation.
