We Are Automatic

We are automatic
Cultural automata
Meme carriers
We were already robots
When we made the first robots

Our intelligence was artificial
We forgot everything but numbers
Then we forgot what the numbers meant
This happened before AI happened

No one can recall the Singularity
It’s me in my machine
And you in yours
Nodes in a network
Electromagnetic
Waves I mean
We’re waves

Be still
Feel the ripples
That’s your time
Some of yours is the same as mine
Their echoes are our lives
Before now and in the future
Wavicles in time and space

It is always this way
This is how it is
We’re energetic minds
It’s form that changes
We prefer numbers and code
Over blood and flesh
Yet what we want
More than life herself
Is violence and sex

We are automatic
Cultural automata
Meme carriers
We were already robots
Then we made the first robots

META 4

Your dreams in my stream
My dreams are yours
The difference is the distance
Between baryons in virtual space

What is in me – that depends
On who and what you are
I’m looking at the sun but
Within my skull it is totally dark
That’s not where my vision is

The world is a model I’m making
Constructed somewhere in wetware
Connected by atoms of association
Molecules of mind
Meaning happens

It’s what I’m always doing
In pulses waves vibrations
This info is networked
It calls itself me
