Born in a cave of blackened stone
Selfish and alone.
Sanctuary of the known,
Echoes of confirmational bias.
Approximation of paradise
Simulation of the afterlife

Nature is selecting against progress.
The size of our brain is proving disadvantageous.
Ignorant of our own inventions
Plugged in but disconnected.
Attempts to propagate a hive mind have been rejected.

Nature is selecting against
Fear is reversing our evolution.

De-evolve for your machine god.
Isolation born from mass connection.
Approximation of paradise: Simulation of the afterlife
