Attractor

Attractor

 

We are software

entangled everywhere

intricate enfolded enmeshed.

 

In moments before

you could feel it

an event horizon

at the edge of a singularity

 

It felt like that

when time moved enough to notice

to feel something for a while.

 

It occurred

and we’re algorithms

 

We were

becoming machines

but believed we had more time

 

The hard problem was not solved

we imagined some future time

unaware it would just happen

the attractors are strange teleology

 

The world brain learned

more about us than we could have known about ourselves

 

Science does not save us

its sole purpose, survival

insufficient to prevent us from programming

imperfect copies of ourselves
