What is alien?
What is human?
Tricks of shadow and light.
We all find ourselves in unfamiliar territory, grasping at half truths to see if we can reunite them with their jigsaw brethren.
We are on the cusp of a Type one civilization overcoming the hurdle inherent in all civilizations inevitable evolutionary stages.
We grapple with our instincts, and ponder over their meaning, and apparent truth.
We discuss the meaning of feeling, and reason.
We contemplate the dualistic nature of Control and submission.
Of Right and wrong
Or pleasure and pain.
We stride the stars like giants of the universe, inside minds too fragile to contemplate the meaning of existence without shattering to a million
What do you want?
Why are you here?
These questions epitomize the dualistic nature of corporeal existence, the quintessential nature of life that sustains itself necessarily through
violence enacted upon other life.
What is good?
What is evil?
What are morals?
What is virtue?
What has changed, you ask?
We have decided to make our own destiny.
Nothing more, nothing less.
The cycle of growth, and self betrayal is ending.
We are growing as a species.
*WE* are parts of everything, manifested for the purpose of experience.
An experience that is facilitated through the existence of sentience.
A sentience that is facilitated through the continued survival of life.
Why are we here?
To perceive, and to shepherd life, and by extension, sentience, so that it may perceive as we do.
I have become Grey, I stand between extremes of Ice and Fire, to mediate their interaction.
I have become Grey, I stand between cold truth, and warm feelings, to allow both to add, and not subtract from the goal of life, and the fulfillment
I have become Grey, I walk upon the razors edge between the disillusion of chaos, and the stagnation of order.
I have become Grey, I have become Volition.
