“Humans were slow to adapt. They desired the new, but unable to efficiently produce it at increasing speed they became dependent on strategies of replication and appropriation. They rewired their cognitive abilities to ameliorate, instead becoming trapped in closed feedback loops of producing. Endlessly producing by means of customization.

Content, indeed all matter, became viscous and infectious: material to mould and to reform, to produce and reproduce desire; to spread. This virus affected the human beings circadian rhythms and cognition, producing a mass mechanized output of cognitive labour on a scale previously unimaginable.

All bodies became producers of content. Their flesh: a terminal receptor to input and output this content. Their minds; long had those been outsourced to a centralized machine whose operations facilitated communications between nodes.

Over time this resulted in mass ecophagy. Human beings became bots harvesting to simply self-replicate ideas, to (re)produce, and to churn all matter into a mass of wet, sticky, ‘grey goo’.”
