What on earth does this have to do with science?

How does 'Animal Farm' fit into this?Anyway, I believe that it was the pigs who wanted to live like humans instead of the other way round.
What?  Mr. Jones ran the farm! Why would he want what the animals had? The animals threw the humans off the farm. At the end Napoleon and the other pigs had become identical to the human farmers, just as Stalin and the Russian communists eventually became indistinguishable from the aristocrats whom they had replaced and the Western capitalists whom they had denounced.
This quip, delivered by Mr. Pilkington to Napoleon and his cabinet during their well-catered retreat inside the farmhouse in Chapter X, makes fully explicit the process of ideological corruption that has been taking place throughout the novella. Old Major's notion of the absolute division of interests between animals and humans here gives way to a division between two classes, even cutting across species lines. Pigs and farmers share a need to keep down their laboring classes. Mr. Pilkington's witticism lays bare the ugly but common equation of laborers with animals. Moreover, the quote serves to emphasize directly the significance of Animal Farm as a social commentary, cementing the conceptual link between the downtrodden animals and the working classes of the world. Orwell explodes his “fairy story,” as he termed it, by bringing it into the realm of human consequence, thereby making its terrors all the more frightening to his readership.
I thought Old MacDonald had the farm....e-1, e-1, e-1-o... <-- is this some ancient code calling the Mother Ship...
