Hominidae: Similar to an intelligent lifeform

In the beginning, Man made god in his own imagination.

Most people on the planet suffer the same oppression whether from the diktats of political leaders, predatory corporations, alien viruses or the simple circumstance of being human and yet we are somehow compelled to inhabit a schizoid civilisation. Probably due to the fact that there’s nowhere else to go.

At a time of terrifying transformations, individuals and whole societies choose to isolate themselves. To observe rather than participate, to comment through third parties on social media than to physically engage. In less than 100 years, the simple act of agreement or validation has passed from a hearty slap on the back followed by a firm handshake to a blue tick against a made-up name.

For human civilisation to be remembered, we must survive as human beings.
