A Dark Parable About Light
Rigor and experience, says science and triumphs. Today we write MATERIAL and ENERGY
in capital letters; EVOLUTION has also long since suspended fate. HADES brings the
light of the souls out of the underworld and transposes their shining into chemical
luminescence: light as a reference to the soul and consciousness glows in a gelatin
cube, thus serving as a source of information at the same time.
While the light glows, people's assumptions about the world are synthesized in an
artificial neural network (ANN) and modified into a machine discourse. Mold (life)
slowly grows over the fluorescent gelatin, until the light is extinguished and the
metaphysical discussion ends.
