On Sea Worms

"The worm is a familiar of the sea! It is wise, though it uses six concepts only: sun, wave, wind, horizon, dark deep, faithful direction, hunger, and satiation … Yes, Lankwiler? Why are you counting on your fingers?”

“Sir, it is no great matter.”

From Jack Vance, Cugel's Saga (Dying Earth book III)
