Did you hear something?
A particle travelling through time & space collides with a dna molecule in a cell in a body of an earthling and your naked howl disappears into the cosmos.

You catch a cold from the reservoirs of infection in your home and take it as an inevitable act of force majeure: We aren’t untouchable. Like the Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull reminded us in 2010 by stopping air travel and disturbing our movements more than any recent war: We are the ridiculous microbes in our clusters and fragile colonies. We send parcels and pallets with necessities to each other.

In our nameless conflict we engage in various forms of mimicry. The non-meat meat, an anti-ass of a pig. And the real pigs alike, fed up with the same gmo-soybeans that produce their oily deep-fried bath later on.

In the muddy sludge under a recycling center in Japan lives the bacterium Ideonella sakaiensis. It has recently adapted to the plastics in its surroundings as it consumes plastic material with explosive, tumorous energy. Plastics, originally developed as a substitute for ivory when it became a scarce commodity, have become the new geological marker of our age for the future archaeologists.

All this is blended together in a grand soup, too complex for our algorithms.
Like trying to explain the internet to ants.

As a holographic image, the thought of the future flickers in a bygone brain.
