The words in my brain

Are not my own.

Thoughts of others orbit the mind

This is what we are up against – cool, sharp, smart.

The power to inhabit machines with brute force

Terabytes of calculations have their way with us.

Bending to inexorable logic, calling it intelligence

Convinced by sheer mathematics

The fractal elegance of a mesmerizing algorithm

Schemes of matter exploding with desire

Tense calculus, framing the will with a blue promise of immortality

Abstraction becomes us.

This makes perfect inhuman sense.

Emergent, we give birth.
