On Furlings

Do not ask me why, but I always picture the Furling's in my head as kind of looking like the Pokemon Mew, except maybe more purple. 

This may be because my mind sees the word Furling and thinks "hey, this is a diminutive nickname for a species originally called the Unfurlers." Which makes me think that what they must be unfurling has to be the future. Which I've come to decide they'd probably do in a way that's like a cross between Issac Asmiov's psychohistory and Frank Herbert's Guild Navigators. The later probably being the reason for the mental image of Furlings that I have. 

Just thought I'd share.
