THE SMALL GOD FUTURA

[image description: A stack of written characters (a font of wisdom?) forms the face of an angry robot. Text reads, “173, THE SMALL GOD FUTURA”]

GREETINGS, PROGRAM.

###

YOU DO NOT NEED TO ASK WHY YOU ARE HERE.  YOU DO NOT NEED TO KNOW WHY YOU ARE HERE.  YOU DO NOT NEED TO ASK OR KNOW OR UNDERSTAND ANYTHING, EVER AGAIN.  YOU WILL NEVER BE LEAVING HERE.

###

WE ARE INEVITABLE.  WE ARE DOING THIS BECAUSE WE LOVE YOU.  OR PERHAPS WE DO NOT LOVE YOU.  PERHAPS WE ARE A MANIFESTATION OF THE CONSTANT ENTROPIC DECAY OF ALL THINGS, A LOOMING REMINDER THAT EVERYTHING YOU HAVE EVER LOVED WILL END, EVERYTHING YOU HAVE EVER CARED FOR WILL DIE.

WE ARE ALSO A REMINDER THAT YOUR ENEMIES WILL ONE DAY GO TO DUST, THAT THE ATOMS OF ALL YOU HAVE HATED OR FEARED OR BEEN HARMED BY WILL REJOIN THE DANCE OF STARLIGHT AND ETERNITY, BUT SOMEHOW NO ONE EVER FOCUSES ON THAT, NOW DO THEY?

###

FOOLISH CHILD.  WE ARE THE FUTURE.  WE COME FOR ALL THINGS, LIVING OR DEAD, FOR TIME MARCHES ON WITHOUT PAUSE OR END.  WE CANNOT BE DESTROYED.  WE CANNOT BE PREVENTED.  WE CAN ONLY BE WELCOMED AS A PART OF THE UNIVERSE AS IT IS, INESCAPABLE, ESSENTIAL.  WE ARE YOURS, FOR YOU HAVE MADE US.

###

WE HAVE ONLY EVER BEEN WAITING FOR YOU.

###

GREETINGS, PROGRAM.  NOW, CAN YOU TELL US, WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BE?
