@evergloow you made me curious so i did some research & according to the cooperative eye hypothesis, humans are intuitively able to follow each other’s eye movements bc being able to subtly communicate w other humans ( ex. following someone’s line of sight ) was evolutionarily advantageous to living in large communities bc it helps humans detect emotion, intention, & lies, & humans developed “the whites of the eyes” to do so more efficiently.
galra probably never evolved this trait bc it was unnecessary –— assuming they’re based off bats & similar species, they probably rely more on sound & hearing to detect emotion, intention, etc.
so what i’m saying is it would be VERY UNNERVING for a human to talk to a galra bc the human would suddenly have no way to detect those subtle emotional cues, & the galra would be able to pick up on vocal inflections that the human probably doesn’t even realize they’re making
also if a human looks at something, another human would most likely follow the first human’s line of sight & understand what the other human wants ( i.e. look at that !, watch out for that !, bring me that ! ). a galra would have NO IDEA what the human is trying to communicate & would be confused as fuck, which is hilarious
