The Polychaete Worm card's biology represents its meaning as a thing interlinked. With it's segmented body plan, each distinct joint of the animal chains together to form the whole. Oftentimes each unit of the chain possesses the same organs as the others. In reading, this card is one to look for connections between others, to find interlined meanings behind disparate elements, and to understand the similarity between all things – mind, body, feeling, being. This phyla is diverse – many species have very different lifestyles and biology, however, they are interlinked in ways deeper than first glance may show.
